nobody movie_A sequel to the Dirty Dancing movie is coming

There are some films that are so iconic that you can take a line out of it and, whether you’ve seen the film or not, you know what it is. “No one puts baby in the corner”, by Dirty dancing is one such quote, and we’re sure superfans of the ’80s cult classic will remember many more. You’ll also be pleased to know that 35 years after the release of the original film, a Dirty dancing Film sequel in progress.


News about the film came last year, but some more details about it have been released recently. Jennifer Grey, who played Baby in the film, will reprise her role and produce the sequel. Directed by Jonathan Levine, who is best known for the successful Amazon Prime series Nine perfect strangers.

‘During the original Dirty dancing has always been one of my favorite films, I never thought I would direct the sequel. Co-writing has made me fall in love with the characters (new and old), the world of Catskills 1990’s New York, and the music, which will range from songs from the original film to ’90s hip-hop,” said Jonathan meeting.

He continued, “I can’t wait to bring this beautiful tale of summer, romance and dancing to a new generation of fans. And to the longtime ones, I promise we won’t ruin your childhood. We will approach the task with finesse, ambition and above all love.”

We appreciate the reassurance!

The director too uncovered that Jennifer Gray might not be the only confidante Dirty dancing face in the sequel.

He said: “The most important thing for us was to have Jennifer on board. She is an invaluable employee. We’ll try to include as many people from the original as is appropriate. We want to be respectful in every way.”

Of course, fans will miss Patrick Swayze in the film. But Jonathan is keen to ensure the actor, who died in 2009, is present.

“This film is in dialogue with the original. We want to introduce this story to a whole new generation. That said, Johnny’s absence plays a big part in the story, so it’s a coming-of-age story, but in a way it’s also a coming-of-age for Baby’s character,” he said.


We don’t know much about the new movie yet, but we do know that it will be set in the ’90s and will follow Baby’s story as she traverses another young woman’s journey to growing up at Kellerman’s summer camp. We couldn’t forget the soundtrack Dirty dancing even if we tried, but some of the original songs – like hungry eyes – should be back.

The film is slated to start production later this year and be released in 2024. Stay tuned for more updates…
