Fans of horror and vampire books are looking forward to the release of “Renfield 2,” the sequel to the 2019 movie “Renfield.” “Renfield 2” will be directed by Chris McKay and made by Skydance Media. It will be another scary story about the famous character from Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.”
Fans and critics alike loved the first movie, so now everyone is waiting for the second one to come out. Read on to find out what we know so far about “Renfield 2’s” release date and what we can expect from this highly anticipated horror movie.
Renfield 2 Release Date
On March 30, 2023, Renfield had its world premiere at the Overlook Film Festival. On April 14, 2023, Universal Pictures released Renfield in the United States. The release date for Renfield has been set for April 14, 2023, by Universal Pictures. Beginning in early 2022, the movie was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The release of the film on the OTT platform has not yet received official word. However, some online sources claim that the film may air at an undetermined time on HBO Max or Netflix. You must visit the theaters on April 14 if you want to see the movie as soon as possible. No streaming service will offer it, and no digital or VOD provider like Peacock will offer it for rent or purchase.

Renfield 2 Expected Storyline
There are currently no set plans for Renfield 2’s plot, but there are two possible directions the movie could take. You can either travel through time to see Renfield’s first encounter with Dracula or watch him use his skills to defeat other monsters.
By the end of the first movie, Dracula is essentially dead and buried. But if horror movies have taught us anything, it’s that vampires don’t actually die. The movie villain played by Nicolas Cage could easily return in Renfield 2 to cause more mayhem. In a potential sequel, the world of Renfield might widen, bringing new creatures for Renfield and Rebecca to exterminate in the Ghostbusters tradition.
On the other hand, we would love to see more of the stunning black-and-white flashback to Renfield’s first encounter with Dracula in the first movie. Imagine a movie where Nicolas Cage plays Nosferatu and tricks Nicholas Hoult into falling into his trap.
Where to Watch Renfield Online?
Currently, the only way to watch Renfield is in a movie theater. It will be available on Friday, April 14. On Fandango, you can look up a nearby showing. Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become a streaming option on Peacock or become a rental or purchase option on digital distribution platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube, and Apple.
Is Renfield Releasing in Theaters or on Streaming?
It makes perfect sense for Renfield to capitalize on the global box office given the intellectual property’s broad appeal on a global scale. Early April will see the theatrical release of Renfield; no specific plans for a streaming release are currently known.
However, given that the movie is a Universal Pictures production, it’s likely that Peacock will become its streaming home at a later time.
Renfield 2 Cast and Characters
Nicholas Hoult plays the titular henchman in Renfield. For his role as Hank McCoy/Beast in the most recent X-Men movies, Hoult is best known. As previously mentioned, Nicolas Cage will portray Dracula opposite Hoult. According to THR, Awkwafina, who starred in Shang Chi, will portray “a character who teams with Hoult’s Renfield to take on the vampire king.” There have been no more casting announcements.
Renfield, which was first conceived by The Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman, will be helmed by The Lego Batman Movie director Chris McKay. Based on Kirkman’s outline, screenwriter Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty) adapted the narrative.
