Is No Limit Based on a True Story?

No Limit is loosely based on the tragic death of promising freediver, Audrey Mestre. And it is for this reason why a No Limit 2 is unlikely to happen. The creators of the film say that it is a work of fiction and does not represent reaility completely. However, there are things that are similar between the film and what really happened in Mestre's death.

For one thing, Mestre's husband, Francisco Ferreras, was blamed for her death. This is because he was responsible for Mestre's air tank lift bag. Unfortunately, it malfunctioned and caused Mestre to die. Ferreras, however, maintained his innocence.

The organization responsible for the event was underfunded, which caused the freediving safety standards to not be followed completely. While there were a couple of safety divers, there was no medical doctor present during the event. When Mestre was brought onshore, she still had a pulse and could have been saved. Sadly, there was no medical team available to perform the necessary rescue.

The first movie ended tragically, which is what happened in real life. But in the event that Netflix decides to renew a sequel due to the success of the film, it's possible that a sequel could get released by the end of 2023.

As of this writing, however, there is very little chance of a sequel happening.
