The Sequel: Is it Happening?
Marlon Wayans, in a few interviews, hinted at the possibility of a ‘White Chicks’ sequel. Terry Crews revealed in 2019 that a sequel was happening, but Marlon later stated the deal wasn’t finalized.
More recently, Marlon stated he’d be willing to do ‘White Chicks 2’ if it includes Shawn Wayans.
However, as of 2023, no official announcement regarding the production or release of a sequel has been made. It’s clear that the interest is there, both from the cast and the fans, but whether it materializes into a film remains to be seen.
