This article discusses whether there will be I Used to be Famous 2,  a sequel to the Netflix film I Used to be Famous (2022), and it will contain spoilers. 

I Used to be Famous centres around Vince, a washed-up singer who, despite being a household name in 2002, is no longer famous, hence the film’s title. Whilst he initially wanted to recapture his former glory, it seems that by the end of the film, he has decided to put his need for fame to rest. So will there be a sequel where we watch Vince live a seemingly normal life?

I Used to be Famous sequel potential release date:

There’s not loads of information regarding the development of the film, so it’s hard to predict how long a potential sequel could take to make. Saying that 18 months seems like a safe bet, which would suggest we could see I Used to be Famous 2 in late 2023/early 2024.

I Used to be Famous sequel cast – who might be in it?

The main two stars of the Netflix film were Ed Skrein and Eoin Macken. It would come as quite a surprise if they weren’t in the sequel (but if Scream 6 can continue without Neve Campell, I guess anything can happen). Additionally, we could see Lorraine Ashbourne, Eleanor Matsuura, Neil Stuke, Leo Long, and Kurt Egyiawan return. We also saw Stanley Morgan as a younger Vince. If the sequel was to explore more of Vince’s childhood, we could also see him return.

I Used to be Famous sequel plot: what could I Used to be Famous 2 be about?

To be totally honest, seeing how the film ended with Vince giving up on his goals to be famous again, I don’t think there will be a sequel. The film came full circle, and it’s nice that he is now happily taking up the “normal” job offer in musical therapy.

However, if the film did return, it could feature Vince changing his mind again and chasing fame again. Or maybe he finds himself in the spotlight against his own will, and this time around, he is trying to find a way not to be famous. Or he could even be acting as a mentor to someone who is trying to become famous again. Who knows! What do you think the sequel could be about?

You can watch this film with a subscription to Netflix.
