Will there be a Day Shift 2 on Netflix?

As Day Shift has only just been released, it's perhaps unsurprising that Netflix is yet to announce whether a sequel is in the works. Usually, the streaming giant assesses views and fan response a little while after a show or movie has been released to determine its future.

But it's certainly possible and something the cast is keen on! Oscar-winning actor Jamie, who is also known for his roles in Dream Girls, Ray, and the Annie reboot, admitted both he and his co-star Dave Franco are eager to make it happen.

Have you watched Day Shift yet?

"We talked last night about it and we got some great ideas," he told Screen Rant. "It's not always normal for Netflix to do part twos, they don't always do it, but we feel like with this one, we got a great chance on how everybody's responding to it already. So I think we'll definitely try to make it happen and I think if they do, it'll be even better."

What is Day Shift on Netflix about?

For those who are yet to watch, the official synopsis reads: "Jamie Foxx stars as a hard-working blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted daughter, but his mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income, hunting and killing vampires as part of an International Union of Vampire Hunters."
