Now, Deadline announced that director Victoria Mohoney would helm the sequel for the streaming service. She takes over the reins from female director Gina Prince-Bythewood on the original film.

I leave our franchise in good hands as my girl Vic Mahoney takes on this next chapter.” – Gina Prince-Bythewood
