‘Bird Box’ Author Reveals a Sequel on the Way

Bird Box/Netflix

Don’t put your blindfolds away yet, Bird Box is coming back!

Last December Bird Box came to Netflix and shook the internet and I’m certain the sequel will be just as mind blowing. In an interview with Esquire, Josh Malerman the author of Bird Box, confirmed that he has written a sequel to the popular novel turned movie. The author revealed that the novel will be titled Malorie and will be released October 1.

When asked about the upcoming novel Malerman said, “In the time between Bird Box coming out and the time since I’ve been writing Malorie, I’ve been asked a ton of times: people want to know what happened with Boy and Girl. But as much as I care about Boy and Girl, this isn’t their story. The Bird Box world is Malorie’s story, and I wanted to know more about her. I wanted to get to know her even better. At the end of the movie, I turned to my girl Allison and said, “I want to know what happens next!” and she’s like, ‘Well, you know, you could make that happen,’ so it really was this warm feeling.”

We’ll keep our fingers crossed that Netflix is already plotting for another adaptation.
