Nearly three years after Knives Out was originally released in late 2019, we’re finally going to get a sequel: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. That means we’re due for more quippy dialogue, zany characters, and another thrilling mystery very soon, but not soon enough.
The complete plot of Glass Onion is not yet clear, but we know that Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc will once again put his detective skills to the test–this time on the picturesque Greek island of Spetses. If Glass Onion is anything like its predecessor, the audience is in for a real treat.
Here’s what we know about the film so far, from its star-studded cast to its potential release date.
When is Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery being released?
While there’s currently no official release date for Glass Onion, it’s slated for release sometime in late 2022. But whenever it does come out, be ready to stream it on Netflix.
Who’s in it?
Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig have been confirmed to return as director of Glass Onion and Detective Benoit Blanc, respectively, but the rest of the cast from the original Knives Out is not. Though character names and bios remain under wraps, we do know that the rest of the Glass Onion cast includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, and Ethan Hawke.
Is there a trailer?
Sorry, folks! No trailer yet. But in Netflix’s 2022 Movie Preview, a short clip from Glass Onion could be seen towards the end of the video. (Skip to timestamp 2:35.) It shows Blanc and some characters boarding a yacht in Greece. Speculation has led many to believe that Johnson will release the trailer at a film festival this fall, according to Variety. No promises, though.

Netflix further teased the film on Aug. 22, sharing first-look photos of the cast together, and Johnson behind the scenes with Janelle Monáe.
Where can I watch the original Knives Out?
For those wishing to catch up on the first film before the sequel arrives, Knives Out (starring Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Christopher Plummer, and more) is currently available to rent on Prime Video.
Whatever the storyline and release date of Glass Onion may be, the A-list cast and the stunning filming location are going to make for a juicy whodunit. Who knows, it might even outdo the first, though the presence of Chris Evans (and his famous cable knit sweater) will be deeply missed.
