But according to a press release from Netflix, Bright is performing extremely well. It's currently the highest viewed Netflix film ever on the service in its first week of release, and one of the biggest originals (including sequels and additional seasons) the company has ever launched. Bright has also remained the number one movie on Netflix in every country (190+ countries).

Director David Ayer will not only return for the sequel, but will also write the script. Max Landis, who wrote the original script, will not return. Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are both expected to reprise their roles.

No release date has been given, so keep your wand at the ready till further notice, I guess.
