Hulu’s newest original comedy from 20th Century Studios Vacation Friends was a massive hit, and the studio is ready to take another trip. According to Deadline, a sequel already titled Honeymoon Friends is in the works. The sequel will bring back director Clay Tarver, as well as reunite the main cast and producer Todd Garner.
Vacation Friends follows straight-laced Marcus and Emily (Lil Rel Howery, Yvonne Orji) who are befriended by wild, thrill-seeking partiers Ron and Kyla (John Cena, Meredith Hagner) at a resort in Mexico. Living in the moment, the usually level-headed couple lets loose to enjoy a week of uninhibited fun and debauchery with their new “vacation friends.” Months after their walk on the wild side, Marcus and Emily are horrified when Ron and Kyla show up uninvited at their wedding, creating chaos and proving that what happens on vacation, doesn’t necessarily stay on vacation.
The film also stars Robert Wisdom (The Alienist, Ballers), Andrew Bachelor (The Babysitter, Holidate) and Lynn Whitfield (Greenleaf, Madea’s Family Reunion). Vacation Friends is 20th Century Studios’ first film to have a global release on the Hulu and Disney+ streaming platforms. The film, which debuted on the Disney-owned streamer has become the most-watched original film in its opening weekend on the streamer to date.
Vacation Friends was written by Tom Mullen & Tim Mullen and Clay Tarver and Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley. The producers are Todd Garner (Tag, Playing with Fire) and Timothy M. Bourne (Love, Simon, The Hate U Give), with Steve Pink and Sean Robins serving as executive producers.
