Netflix has unveiled “Jurassic World: Chaos Theory,” a sequel TV series scheduled to air in 2024.
The series is positioned as a sequel to “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” which is the second part of a trilogy continuing the storyline from the original movies.
The series is described with the logline, “After the park has closed, after the kingdom has fallen, a new era of chaos begins…. Jurassic World: Chaos Theory is coming to Netflix in 2024.” The announcement video features a clip of the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex.
While specific plot details and casting rumors are limited, it has been confirmed that Paul-Mikél Williams will return to portray Darius Bowman, reprising his role from “Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous,” an animated spin-off produced by Netflix.
The Jurassic World film trilogy wrapped up with Dominion in the previous year. However, producer Frank Marshall hinted earlier that the studio was not entirely finished with the prehistoric creatures.
“I think that Dominion’s going to wrap up this trilogy, but we’re not resting on our laurels,” he stated. “We’re going to sit down, and we’re going to see what the future is. We have that wonderful series, Camp Cretaceous, on Netflix.”
“We want to create excellent movies with compelling stories, talented writers, and directors, and we’re certainly exploring additional opportunities within the Jurassic world.”
Marshall expressed optimism about the series’ future, but director Colin Trevorrow shared that with hindsight, he believes Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film should have remained a standalone feature.
“For the franchise to be able to move forward, there probably should have only been one Jurassic Park,” he said. “But if we’re gonna do it, how can I allow them to tell stories in a world in which dinosaurs exist, as opposed to, here’s another reason why we’re going to an island?”
Jurassic World: Chaos Theory is set to premiere on Netflix in 2024.
