No matter if audiences watched this film for the story or watched to see Harry Styles on their screens, one thing is for sure, Don’t Worry Darling is the film that has everyone talking.

The 2022 film is a wild ride from start to finish, as it journeys the life of a woman named Alice (Florence Pugh) who, through strange encounters and weird experiences, comes to realize that her perfect life is far from ordinary. Determined to uncover the mystery behind a suspicious mission called “The Victory Project”, as well as reveal the secrets the project’s creator, Frank (Chris Pine), is keeping, Alice fights tooth and nail to wake up out of this hellish nightmare and return to the real world where both her body and her freedom lie.

Simply put, audiences were entranced by such a story. From its nuances to its immense amount of metaphors, there wasn’t a second where their eyes weren’t glued to the screen—it’s no wonder why thousands of film buffs are asking for more! But what are the odds that we will ever receive a second installment of Don’t Worry Darling?

As of today, Don’t Worry Darling isn’t said to have a sequel in the making. However, given the abrupt ending (and the mountain of unanswered questions), some believe that the story isn’t over just yet.

Though it’s assumed that Alice was able to make it out of the simulation in the end, it wouldn’t be bad to receive some closure as to what happened after she woke up in the real world. Did she immediately go to the authorities? Or did she wallow in her bed next to her husband, Jack’s (Harry Styles), corpse? Or, conversely, did she not make it in the end after all?

We were void of these answers in the 2022 film, which is all the more reason why a sequel explaining how (or if) Alice rights the wrongs of these men would be a pretty neat idea.

And, in speaking of the men, what happened to the survivors of The Victory Project, such as Dean (Nick Kroll) and Bill (Douglas Smith)? Were they also slain by their wives, or did they somehow escape? And, if the men did manage to escape, will they ever attempt to remake the oppressive simulation?

Last but certainly not least, what in the world became of Margaret? While we know her character, unfortunately, didn’t make it in the end, there was so much more we could’ve explored with her character before her death. Turns out, Kiki Layne, the talented actress who played Margaret, seems to agree.

“The best thing about #DontWorryDarling is that I was lucky enough to meet @arielstachel,” Layne wrote on her Instagram post. “They cut us from most of the movie, but we thriving in real life.”

Whether it’s all about Margaret and Ted’s (Ari’el Stachel) life before their fate or it’s about Alice, a Don’t Worry Darling sequel could go in any direction and still be considered an amazing title. But, of course, with any film, we need a cooperative cast and crew before we can get into any sort of conversation about filming.

Will Florence Pugh return to play Alice in a Don’t Worry Darling sequel?

As you might have heard, the cast and crew of Don’t Worry Darling aren’t exactly on the best of terms.

Many media outlets report that Florence Pugh and director Olivia Wilde got into a “screaming match” on the set of the film. What’s more, apparently, Pugh and Wilde’s partner, Harry Styles, also have some tensions between them because of whatever transpired on set. Having all this in mind, it’s safe to assume Pugh would want little to nothing to do with a sequel for her latest project, which we certainly can’t blame her for.

Nevertheless, we, along with many fans, hope that all the drama behind the cameras solves itself so that we can, hopefully, enjoy this wonderful ensemble and the powerful story that they told once more.
