The movie was a massive hit and in May 2020 had reached 90 million households in its first four weeks of streaming on Netflix. A month after it's release Joe confirmed that they are working on part 2. Known for his Marvel movies, Joe Russo is back in the writer's chair while Sam Hargrave will be back as director. 

''The deal is closed for me to write 'Extraction 2', and we are in the formative stages of what the story can be. We're not committing yet to whether that story goes forward, or backward in time. We left a big loose ending that leaves question marks for the audience.'' he told the deadline. 

The sequel is set to start filming in the fall as long as it does not face any delays due to COVID-19, Hargrave confirmed earlier. 

The first movie follows the story of Tyler Rake (Hemsworth), a former SASR operator-turned-mercenary who is hired by India's biggest drug dealer (Pankaj Tripathi) to rescue his son who is kidnapped by Bangladesh's biggest drug dealer.

The first film starred a bevvy of well known Bollywood actors including Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi and Priyanshu Painyuli amongst others.
