Buddy Games 2 is officially back on track. The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the sequel to the indie comedy will debut May 19.
The original Buddy Games film was originally set for release in early 2020 after premiering at Mammoth Film Festival, but its release date was pushed to November 24, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s now available to stream on Hulu.
Buddy Games 2 will star Josh Duhamel (who also returns to direct), Kevin Dillon, Dan Bakkedahl, James Roday Rodriguez, Nick Swardson, and new cast addition Ginnifer Goodwin. Deadline previously revealed the full synopsis for the sequel.
“The sequel picks up with Bobfather and the guys following the death of one of their own, as they take an unexpected journey to commemorate his life. After they make the snap decision to steal the urn and flee his funeral, they make their way to the place where the Buddy Games tradition began. Once there, things go south when they accidentally find themselves in the middle of Spring Break.”
