There is little doubt that people were disappointed when it was announced that A Quiet Place II would be delayed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. After all, fans were already looking forward to the follow-up to the 2018 sleeper hit. Luckily, there is finally some good news from Paramount Pictures. The studio has confirmed the sequel's new release date.

According to Variety, A Quiet Place II has been given a new release date in September. It is important to point out that the new premiere is only temporary and could still be changed depending on the COVID-19 situation. Nevertheless, fans were happy to know that there is something to look forward to once the mandatory self-isolation is lifted.

The sequel to A Quiet Place was originally set to premiere on March 8 but the film's release date was postponed due to COVID-19. The new movie, which is still being directed by John Krasinski, takes place after the events of the first film.

The synopsis for A Quiet Place II reads as follows:

"Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path."

The film stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe as the Abbott family. New cast members include Cillian Murphy of Peaky Blinders and Guardians of the Galaxy star Djimon Hounsou. A Quiet Place II is now scheduled for release on September 4.
