The Sequel To Bird Box Has Been Released In Book Form

The Sequel To Bird Box Has Been Released In Book Form

The much-anticipated sequel to Bird Box - the book that became a smash-hit Netflix film - is finally finished, according to author Josh Malerman.

We'll have to wait a little bit to find out what the full details about it are, but it's finished, and that's a start.

Malerman tweeted: "MALORIE has arrived.

"I have so much to say about her, and I will, and I have, but for now:

"This book is for @agentkristinNLA. You are a dream-maker.

That's nice, isn't it - thanking his agent, editor and publishers. After all, he's the one who actually had to write the thing, isn't he?

As for that aforementioned thing, you can pick it up online - certainly in the USA, anyway - and find out what became of Malorie and her kids after they made their terrifying aquatic escape.

12 years after, as it happens.

The Penguin Random House - who have published the book - website describes the plot: "Twelve years after Malorie and her children rowed up the river to safety, a blindfold is still the only thing that stands between sanity and madness.

"One glimpse of the creatures that stalk the world will drive a person to unspeakable violence.

"There remains no explanation. No solution.

Creator Of Bird Box Says A Sequel Is 'In Development'

"All Malorie can do is survive-and impart her fierce will to do so on her children. Don't get lazy, she tells them. Don't take off your blindfold. AND DON'T LOOK.

"But then comes what feels like impossible news. And with it, the first time Malorie has allowed herself to hope.

"Someone very dear to her, someone she believed dead, may be alive."

The blurb continues: "Malorie has already lost so much: her sister, a house full of people who meant everything, and any chance at an ordinary life.

"But getting her life back means returning to a world full of unknowable horrors-and risking the lives of her children again.

"Because the creatures are not the only thing Malorie fears: There are the people who claim to have caught and experimented on the creatures.

"Murmurings of monstrous inventions and dangerous new ideas. And rumours that the creatures themselves have changed into something even more frightening.

"Malorie has a harrowing choice to make: to live by the rules of survival that have served her so well, or to venture into the darkness and reach for hope once more."

Netflix is currently in development of the movie version of the sequel, but obviously that will all have to be pushed back because of you-know-what, so we'll have to wait and see.

Speaking to Inverse earlier this month, Malerman said: "I can't say much, but I can say that it is in development. Sometimes it's weird, all this secrecy, but I'm game."
