The romantic comedy Palm Springs has been a huge hit since its release in July. Directed by Max Barbakow with a screenplay by Andy Siara, Palm Springs is about two strangers, Nyles (Andy Samberg) and Sarah (Cristin Milioti), who meet at a Palm Springs wedding only to get stuck in a time loop. As Sarah tries to get out of the time loop, Nyles admits that he’s been trapped in a time loop for what seems to be years now. Although disliking eachother at first, the two of them slowly develop a romance while living the same day over and over again.
The time looping romantic comedy did so well among viewers that the two have confirmed that a sequel is already in conversation. Samberg doesn’t go into detail about the plot of the potential Palm Springs 2, but he does compare some of the ideas to a recent Marvel series: “I mean, it could go in a lot of different directions because I feel like even the way that the movie ends is slightly open-ended, depending on your interpretation. So it could be marital bliss or it could be sort of a WandaVision situation. You’re not sure exactly where they are”.
Milioti has also discussed the possibility of a Palm Springs sequel: “We actually have talked about it. We talked about it on set a lot. Obviously it would have to be the same group again. I remember us all joking about doing sort of a Before Sunrise thing with it, where you visit them three different times throughout their lives. So maybe we would do another one in 10 years and see what’s happened to them. But what I also love about the ending is, in my opinion, the ending is quite ambiguous”.
These are all the updates for now, but until then, Palm Springs is available for streaming now on Hulu.
