As if fans weren’t excited enough for The Babysitter 2, a huge actress has just joined the already epic cast! Yep, get ready, people, because according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenna Ortega has been cast in the highly anticipated sequel. Wow, this is seriously the best news ever.
As fans know, the Netflix movie came out back in 2017, and it quickly became a fan favorite. It was about a boy named Cole, who discovered that his babysitter was a part of a satanic cult. It starred Bella Thorne, Samara Weaving, Judah Lewis, Hana Mae Lee, Robbie Amell, Andrew Bachelor, Emily Alyn Lind and more!
The sequel will take place two years after the first movie ended, and fans are pretty excited to see what happens next. THR reported that in the second flick, Cole “is trying to forget his past and focus on surviving high school. But when old enemies unexpectedly return, he will once again have to outsmart the forces of evil.”
How intense does that sound?! It’s already been confirmed that almost everyone from the cast of the first movie will return for the second — except, Samara, who played the evil babysitter in the original film. McG, who directed the first movie, will also return to direct the second.
On October 19, 2019, Bella seemingly revealed that production for the sequel had already began!
“Just a little @Netflix baby,” she wrote on Instagram.
As fans know, Jenna is most famous for her role as Harley Diaz in Disney Channel’s Stuck In the Middle. She also appeared in Jane the Virgin, Man of the House, Wyrm, Elena of Avalor, Richie Rich, After Words, Saving Flora, Rake, Insidious: Chapter 2, The Cookie Mobster, Iron Man 3 and more! It was announced back in February that she’d be joining the cast of You for its second season. She’s also set to play Jennifer Garner‘s daughter in the upcoming movie, Yes Day.
