‘Extraction 3’: Chris Hemsworth And Sam Hargrave Returning For Next Action-Packed Sequel At Netflix

Well, whaddaya know? I JUST watched Extraction 2 this morning, and now Netflix has announced that a sequel is happening. Chris Hemsworth and the franchise’s director, Sam Hargrave, confirmed Extraction 3 as part of Netflix’s Tudum fan event in Brazil.

This should come as a surprise to nobody, especially if you watched Extraction 2. That film teased the return of Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake character for another mission, this time working for a mysterious new employer.

Extraction arrived in 2020, adapted by Joe Russo from the graphic novel Ciudad by Ande Parks. Tyler Rake is the best in the world at extracting people from dangerous situations. He was presumed dead at the end of the first movie, but when it became Netflix’s biggest hit of the summer…well, Rake earned himself an extra life.

Extraction 2 found Rake returned from the dead and taking on an even deadlier assignment, after recovering from his near-fatal injures, of course. Our review Khalil absolutely loved it, and so did I. It’s probably the best action movie of the year that isn’t John Wick 4.
