Since its debut, the Meg series has been riding the waves of success. The gripping tale of monstrous sharks and heart-pounding suspense has gripped audiences worldwide. The first film, set against a backdrop of perilous underwater adventures, raked in an astonishing $530 million globally. Warner Bros. seems to have stumbled upon a new crown jewel, as the Meg series, fronted by the indomitable Jason Statham, gains traction.

Is Warner Bros. Diving Back In?

The burning question on everyone’s lips is, “Will there be a Meg 3?”
Despite eager anticipation, Warner Bros. has remained tight-lipped about the official renewal of Meg 3. However, whispers in the corridors of Hollywood hint that if the next film showcases the profitability akin to its predecessor, we might be in for more heart-stopping, jaw-snapping adventures.
Meg 2: The Trench, which premiered in August 2023, continued the thrilling saga of the first film. Though Warner Bros. is yet to make an official announcement about Meg 3’s release, there are speculations among fans and experts. Considering the five-year gap between the first and second film, some forecast that if Warner Bros. gives a nod for Meg 3, it might not hit theaters until August 2025. Complicating the situation are potential delays due to authors’ and actors’ strikes. Film aficionados might have to keep their fingers crossed till 2024 for any onset of production.

There’s also buzzing speculation around the content of the upcoming film. The Meg series has, so far, drawn inspiration from Steve Alten’s gripping book series. While the third book unfolds 18 years after the second, a vast leap forward in the film’s timeline might be unlikely. Instead, fans might be treated to a reality TV-themed twist or an entirely new plot diverging from the novels.
