“A Quiet Place II“, the sequel to the smash-hit 2018 movie starring husband-wife duo John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, will hit theatres earlier than expected, after a chain of delays due to the ongoing coronavirus.
Krasinki, who wrote and directed the movie, took to Twitter Thursday night to share that the highly-anticipated second installment will now release on Memorial Day.
“They say good things come to those who wait. Well… I think we’ve waited long enough. A QUIET PLACE PART II Memorial Day,” the actor tweeted.

The movie’s accounts on social media affirmed that the production will be hit the theaters on May 28.
In addition, “A Quiet Place Part II” will also be available for streaming on Paramount+ 30-45 days after the movie hits theaters.
The movie sees original castmembers Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe reprising their roles.
The plot centers around the remaining members of the Abbott family— Evelyn (Blunt) and her children, Regan (Millicent Simmonds), Marcus (Noah Jupe) and a newborn baby— while they continue to live in silence and hide from creatures that hunt sound, this time while facing the terrors of the outside world.
“A Quiet Place Part II” was initially set to be released in March 2020. The movie’s first release date delay occurred in the aftermath of the global coronavirus pandemic. At the time, the studio opted to delay the movie during the period of time when it was still unclear how widespread or long-term the pandemic would be.
Earlier this year, Paramount delayed the post-apocalyptic thriller to Sept. 17 for a theatrical release, after the sequel was initially pushed from Sept. 4, 2020, to April 23, 2021.
