You hear that? A Quiet Place 3 is coming to theaters in 2025.

Not only is A Quiet Place 3 in the works, but so is a spinoff prequel. A Quiet Place: Day One will chronicle the beginning of the invasion by terrifying alien creatures with acute sense of hearing. It will premiere sometime in 2024.

Meanwhile, A Quiet Place 3 may continue the story featuring Emily Blunt. However, it's unclear if John Krasinski will return to direct the the next installment of the franchise he helped originate. 

Then again, the project could introduce new characters in a different location, still under siege from the same breed of marauding predators from the OG films. But, really, the jury is currently still out on what to expect.

Here's everything we know about A Quiet Place 3.

Details are thin for A Quiet Place 3. No cast members have been confirmed. 

It's possible that the main players of A Quiet Place II return: Emily Blunt as Evelyn Abbott, Millicent Simmonds as Regan Abbott, and Noah Jupe as Marcus Abbott. A flashback cameo may be made by John Krasinski as Lee Abbott. 

As for A Quiet Place: Day One, it will star Lupita Nyong’o and Stranger Things 4 breakout star Joseph Quinn, per Deadline. The outlet also reported that Alex Wolff (Hereditary) is joining the cast.

A Quiet Place 3 plot

Much of what happens in A Quiet Place 3 will likely rely on how this movie interlinks with the world of the previous two films. 

A Quiet Place 2 focused on Regan Abbott's quest to find the source of a mysterious radio signal, which played 'Beyond the Sea' on a strange loop. She finds an island that is actually a safe haven for humans as the aliens cannot swim; the National Guard rounded up people in the early days of the apocalyptic invasion to safely stow them away from the monsters. Except a monster does eventually arrive, because of course it does. 

There are any number of places a new story could go.

Blunt told Collider that Krasinski has plenty of ideas for both a sequel to the Abbott family and for a tangential film, explaining that he “wanted to see how people responded to this one (A Quiet Place 2) before he fully engaged his brain on the third one. But he has a couple of great ideas.”

In an interview with Empire, Krasinski teased, "Is it going to continue the Abbotts? Who knows!... No, I will tell you that it is… I’m really excited about the third installment because it’s going to do something that we haven’t done before." 

Which is a lot of words to not say anything at all. That said, he did give us something real to chew on, speaking of the end of Part II: "The ending of the last shot is, now that the world knows about [the signal that the creatures are vulnerable to], what will the world do with this answer, or with this weapon? Will they be responsible with it, or will they not be responsible with it?”
