With the critical success the movie has received and the love of the viewers for the film, it is natural to wonder about a sequel. It is said that the movie has covered almost everything that was in the book. Frank’s (the main character) aspects and everything related to him that was explored in the book has been included in the movie. So this narrows the possibility of a sequel unless the writer decides to publish another book based on the first. Moreover, even the director, Martin Scorsese is known for not releasing a sequel for any of his films. And add to that, bringing the big casts together once more is a greatly difficult task. This further brings the possibility of ‘The Irishman 2’ down to almost zero. But no one can say for sure as we don’t know what Netflix might have ideas.

Finally, as for now, there is no ‘The Irishman’ sequel in the making. There is no confirmation by anyone involved. Till then, the fans have to wait and see if there is going to be one or never.
