Will There Be a ‘Bridesmaids 2’? Insights From The Cast on Potential Sequel

The notion of a sequel to the wildly popular comedy ‘Bridesmaids’ has been a subject of both excitement and speculation among fans and cast members alike. However, recent insights from key figures involved in the film shed light on the likelihood of a follow-up instalment.

Wendi McLendon-Covey, known for her role as Rita in ‘Bridesmaids’, aligns with Kristen Wiig’s stance, emphasising that there are currently no plans for a sequel. McLendon-Covey emphasises that Wiig herself has been vocal about her lack of interest in revisiting the franchise, effectively closing the door on any potential continuation.

Speaking to a magazine, McLendon-Covey stated, “You know, for 10 years we’ve been saying that there will be no sequel. And that’s coming from Kristen’s mouth. So, yeah, there is no sequel.”

Maya Rudolph, who portrayed the bride-to-be Lillian in the film, takes a diplomatic approach, acknowledging Wiig’s perspective while expressing gratitude for the experience. While Rudolph treasures the memories associated with ‘Bridesmaids,’ she respects Wiig’s decision and refrains from speculating on the possibility of a sequel.

In contrast, some cast members express enthusiasm for the idea of a ‘Bridesmaids’ sequel. Melissa McCarthy, whose performance as Megan earned widespread acclaim, enthusiastically expresses her willingness to reunite with the cast for a sequel. McCarthy fondly recalls the camaraderie shared among the cast and eagerly looks forward to revisiting the magical experience of filming ‘Bridesmaids’.

Similarly, Rose Byrne, known for her role as the sophisticated Helen, echoes McCarthy’s sentiments. She expresses her openness to reprising her role in a potential sequel but emphasises that her fellow castmates’ agreement would be essential for the project to move forward.
