We know you're on the edge of your knife seat for more mysteries with detective Benoit Blanc!

Following the success of 2019's Knives Out, the film starring Daniel Craig as the idiosyncratic detective is getting a sequel.

Plans for a follow-up film were first announced in February 2020 and later confirmed in March 2021 as Netflix paid more than $400 million for the rights to the franchise.

Officially titled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, the movie includes yet another star-studded cast and nail-biting murder mystery, this time set in Greece.

Over the past few months, Netflix has shared a handful of details, including first-look images and an official trailer. Now, the film finally has a theatrical release date.

Read ahead for everything to know about the anticipated Knives Out sequel.

Per the official tagline from Netflix, the upcoming film follows Benoit Blanc as he "peels back the layers in a new [director] Rian Johnson whodunit." Set on a lavish private estate on a Greek island, "Blanc soon meets a distinctly disparate group of friends gathering at the invitation of billionaire Miles Bron for their yearly reunion," the description continues.

Aside from Craig's detective Benoit Blanc being featured in both films, it appears that there isn't any correlation between the two films, since they involve two completely different murders and suspects.

Director and writer Rian Johnson also clarified that Knives Out 2 serves more as a standalone than a sequel.

"I've never really been interested in doing sequels, but this, the idea of doing more of these with Daniel as his character, is not sequels," he told Uproxx in 2019. "It's just what Agatha Christie did. It's just coming up with a whole new mystery, a whole new location, all new cast, whole new mechanics of the appeal of a mystery and everything. It'd be a blast."
