Zendaya’s character Chani vowed at the end of 2021’s Dune (also known as Dune: Part One) that “this is only the beginning,” and we now know how long we have to wait for the sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s science fiction epic. According to star Timothée Chalamet in a behind-the-scenes photo, Dune 2, based on the second half of Frank Herbert’s first novel in the Dune series of books, will conclude filming in December 2022. It will be available in November 2023.
Fans will be hoping that the new film resolves the massive cliffhanger from the first film, and there is even a chance that Dune 2 will not be our final visit to Arrakis, as Villeneuve has hinted that if he adapts Frank Herbert’s second book in the series, Dune Messiah, he may consider making the movies into a trilogy. Let us now examine the Dune 2 Release Date and some other facts related to the series.

Part Two of Dune will begin where the first film left off, with Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) spearheading a revolt against the Harkonnens for control of the planet Arrakis. In their war against the Harkonnens, Paul and his mother, Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), will seek the assistance of the Fremen, Arrakis’ native population.
