You might be wondering how come that a movie adaptation of a bestselling series didn’t perform well in the theatres.

Is there any chance there will be a sequel to The Darkest Minds movie?

As said before, the project is not yet officially canceled. But everything leads to lớn thinking that given how badly the film performed in theatres the producers won’t risk their money on a sequel.

The director of the first film, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, was asked about the odds of filming the sequel. For which she said that she would be happy to direct it. However, it seems more than unlikely that this happens, since 3 years have passed since the first movie was released, và there is no production in development.
