Day Shift 2: What Do We Know About Its Sequel Release Date?
If a sequel to the Netflix vampire action comedy Day Shift is being made, star Dave Franco has some specific requests.
Franco elaborated on his vision for the potential continuation of the story. After spending most of the film as a dumb office worker who isn’t used to hunting vampires in the field, Franco finally gets to try his hand at it and realizes it’s something he’d like to do more of.
Franco stated, “we’re a team together,” after the process, aiming to make as many of them without giving too much away. That’s why I’m excited to launch a brand new venture where we can waste no time getting started, and I can contribute right away. I think that would be a lot of fun.
The film’s themes and conclusion leave plenty of possibilities for future adventures involving vampire hunters Jamie Foxx and Dave Franco, should Netflix choose.
According to the plot summary, the movie centers on “a hard-working blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted daughter.” Still, his mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his natural source of income: hunting and killing vampires as part of an international Union of vampire hunters.
The cast of Day Shift includes Jamie Foxx, Dave Franco, Karla Souza, Meagan Good, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Scott Adkins, Steve Howey, Eric Lange, and others.
J.J. Perry makes his directorial debut with the feature film Day Shift, whose screenplay was adapted from a script written by Tyler Tice and rewritten by Shay Hatten (John Wick 3 & 4, Army of the Dead). The film is produced by Chad Stahelski and Jason Spitz of 87Eleven Entertainment, as well as Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates Redick of Impossible Dream Entertainment. Foxx, Datari Turner, and Peter Baxter are the executive producers.
Sequel Release Date
According to thereviewgeek, We don’t know for sure, but given all of Foxx’s other commitments, I wouldn’t expect it to be out before 2024. The TV miniseries Tyson (in which he will play Mike Tyson) and a possible remake of The Wild Bunch are among these projects.
Unfortunately, this is all we know now; however, if a sequel to Day Shift is ever announced, we will be sure to update this page.

Jamie Foxx’s Day shift opens with a sunny day in the San Fernando Valley, a setting used in other films. It’s incredible how the film manages to identify so many striking similarities between the natural valley and its fictionalized counterpart. However, nothing has prepared audiences for what happens next.
For instance, since San Fernando Valley’s employment situation doesn’t change, a vampire might be able to run a real estate agency successfully. Foxx’s character, Budd Jablonski, is a vampire hunter with a second job as a pool cleaner, representing the working class.
J.J. Perry, the film’s director, and a renowned stunt performer and coordinator, wisely decided to make Day Shift an action movie without sacrificing the film’s comedic or dramatic elements. The director wastes no time letting the audience know that he intends to show them Bud’s murdering escapades; the first scene has Foxx’s Jablonski enter a house and immediately encounter an undead person, not just any undead person, but an elderly one. We know that more bloody action is coming because of this scenario.
Bud (Jamie Foxx) is a father in Day Shift trying to make ends meet for his daughter, who needs pricey dental work and school tuition but can’t afford it on his blue-collar salary. If Jablonski wants to make those USD 10,000 in a week, he has no alternative except to rejoin the Union, from which he was expelled for his hunting habits.
With the help of his friend Big John (Snoop Dogg), Bud gets reinstated into the Union, but things get more problematic when his Union representative, Seth (Dave Franco), isn’t excited about working in the field stuck with Bud on his day shift.

Since Bud’s wife and daughter discovered what he did before the credits rolled, they might become more involved in his work in a potential sequel.
Since both Seth (Franco) and Big John (Snoop) underwent significant changes in the first film, there is room for a continuation that explores their lives as vampires.
Scott Adkins and Steve Howey, who played vampire-hunting brothers the Nazarians in Day Shift, might potentially replace the current leads. Failing that, there’s plenty of material for a serialized adventure starring the ass-kicking siblings to fill a whole TV series.
