Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there will be a sequel to Interstellar. Director Christopher Nolan has not confirmed any plans for a sequel and there has been no further development on the project since its cancellation in 2018.

However, fans have expressed their desire to see a sequel and some have speculated that a sequel may eventually happen in the future.

When Will Interstellar 2 Come Out?

Interstellar 2 was scheduled to be release on November 5th, 2023 but it was cancelled later by director Christopher Nolan due to some undisclosed reason.

Even though, Nolan never said anything officially regarding the sequel, fans are stil hoping to see Matthew McConaughey in the role of Joseph Cooper once again.

But it seems that Nolan isn’t interested in bringing any more film of the franchise. The director doesn’t want to create any sequel and the movie ends up with a single part like Inception and Tenet.

This is really sad but we will unable to see any new part of the Interstellar for now like Edge of Tomorrow 2, Silver Surfer, Sicario 3, Black Cat, and various other movies that were cancelled after receiving no revival from the creators.

Is there an interstellar 2?

A short film of 49 minutes titled Interstelar 2: Operation Terra 2040 was released in 2016 as the sequel of Interstellar movie. The movie has been directed and co-written by Danil Andreev with Sergey Volkov while Sergey A provided the concept.

The sci-fi movie sets in 16 years after the events of original Interstellar (2014) where another man goes on a space mission in an attempt to bring food to Earth.

Since the film doesn’t meet viewer’s expectations, it received so many negative reviews from the critics and is rated poorly across critic platforms as IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, and Metacritic.

Danil Andreev, the director of the film is starring in the film as main protagonist/ Fisherman in ‘Jaws in Russia’ who is going on a space mission to save humanity like Senku is planning in Dr Stone Season 4 after preparing enough nitric acid.

Interstellar Ending Explained

At the end of Interstellar, Cooper enters the tesseract in order to try and save humanity by sending the quantum data of the mission’s success to Murph on Earth. After a difficult journey, Cooper is successful in sending the data and reunites with Murph in the past.

With the help of the quantum data, scientists are able to develop a new form of propulsion, allowing humanity to relocate to a new home in another galaxy. Murph and Cooper then reunite in the future and share a final goodbye before Cooper departs on a new mission.

What is the story of Interstellar?

The story follows a group of astronauts who travel through a wormhole in search of a new home for humanity. The crew is led by former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and includes scientists Amelia Brand (Anne Hathaway) and Romilly (David Gyasi).

The mission is further complicated by time dilation, meaning that time passes much more slowly on the other side of the wormhole than it does in the real world. The crew discovers that a mysterious force has been manipulating the space-time continuum, and must find a way to save humanity before time runs out.

The timeline of events in Interstellar 2 is still up in the air. It is possible that the film will conclude with humanity finally finding a new home in space. However, there are infinite possibilities in the outer space so plot can progress in any direction like another space mission to discover aliens, water on moon, mars, or kissing the sun.


Interstellar has a rating of 8.6/10 on IMDb, based on over 810,000 reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a score of 74%, with an average rating of 7.9/10. On Metacritic, the film has a score of 74 out of 100, based on 56 critic reviews.

The film received critical acclaim for its visuals, sound design, and performances, and was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Original Score, Best Production Design, and Best Visual Effects.

Overall, the movie has been well-received by critics and audiences alike, with many praising its visuals and storytelling. However, the chances of happening an Interstellar 2 are still slim because Nolan doesn’t seem to be interested in bringnig a sequel.

But we are hoping for a sequel because a lot of new information is available regarding the black hole that wasn’t available when the movie was first released.

  1. Tried pitching Interstellar II script through the producers but hit several walls. Proprietary mostly. Yet one in particular loved the plot so much they suggested I rewrite it as an original. But it is built on the original Interstellar and is as good (otherwise why bother?).

    An alien race called the Immani come through the wormhole at Saturn and wipe out humanity (to prevent them from settling on their home worlds). Edmund’s Planet is forgotten. 25 years later, Coop and Brand are wakened from cryo sleep because the Plan B race of Embryonics are dying off. Coop has to return to Saturn to seek a cure and to find out why no one ever contacted them on Edmund’s. He is forced to jury rig a lander to make the trip because his and Brand’s son Dayton crashed the only Ranger they had.

    There is much much more, but I’m saving it for the audience should this sell. My script explains who “They” are and what their plan is… also the solution to harness gravity I explain as well as the method of forming anti-gravity fields.

    Coop will communicate with “They” in the various forms of Murphy and Donald… and when he makes it to Saturn, he discovers the fate of the human race there. Once again humanity is on the verge of extinction… and Coop much go to the Immani to try to save the Ebonics back on Edmund’s.
