  • On September 26, 2023, Edwards stated that there are no plans for a sequel, saying “I was like endings, my favorite part of the story is the end. My favorite part of a joke is the punchline. And so I just want it to be this self-contained thing. So I mean, it’s a high class problem. If someone ever came up and said, ‘We want a sequel.’ That’d be a really good problem to have. But it is not the plan. No.”
