This comedy and an action-packed monster movie are set seven years after the Monsterpocalypse. Joel Dawson (Dylan O’Brien), along with the remnants of humanity has been living underground. Their land has been conquered and is swarming with monsters and it is extremely dangerous for humans to be up there. While underground, Joel reconnects with his high school girlfriend, Aimee, over the radio by chance and begins to fall for her again. But she is now 80 miles away at a coastal colony.

LOVE AND MONSTERS 2
Love and Monsters came out almost a year ago but Love and Monsters 2 is yet to be confirmed. Despite the success of the first movie, the makers haven’t said anything regarding a sequel yet. Fans might be in for some disappointing news because there aren’t any hints about a sequel happening as of now. It seems like the makers had only planned on having one movie. Having said that, we need not lose hope just yet!
LOVE AND MONSTERS 2 EXPECTED CAST
Here are the people whom we expect will return if a sequel does ever materialize-
Dylan O’Brien and Jessica Henwick will, of course, reprise their roles. There would be no story without their cute puppy love. Oh and also, their puppy Boy! Isn’t he just the best boy ever? He has well and truly earned his very own separate fan base.
Assuming it picks up directly after the events of the first movie, we should also see Michael Rooker, Ariana Greenblatt as well as people from Joel’s colony such as Karen.
TRAILER AND RELEASE DATE
Since the sequel hasn’t been announced, there are no trailers out. Neither has there been any talk of a shooting schedule or release date.
Well, we can only hope for the best and wait for more updates!
Until then, you can stream Love and Monsters on Netflix!
