When Is the 23 Jump Street Going to Air on Television? A New Date Has Been Set for the Release of the Film.
“21 Jump Street,” a comedic adaptation of the cult TV series that catapulted Johnny Depp to stardom, stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as Schmidt and Jenko, two cops recruited into a program in which undercover officers infiltrate high schools.
Whereas Depp’s TV character was competent and professional, Schmidt and Jenko are atrociously bad at acting like they’re undercover. The massive, fully developed Tatum is clearly too old to be a high schooler, according to a running gag.
Their efforts to fit in at school quickly escalate into wild parties, car chases, and a climactic showdown at prom. The buddy comedy was a big hit when it first came out, grossing $201 million on a $42 million budget and spawning a sequel, “22 Jump Street,” this time set in college.
Schmidt and Jenko were jokingly featured in nearly two dozen fictional sequels to the film, as well as a fake animated series and toy line, in the end credits of “22 Jump Street.” However, the film was released seven years ago, and there has been no real sequel to date. Will there be a “23 Jump Street” sequel in the future?
Plot of 23 Jump Street
23 Jump Street is the third installment of the comedy series 21 Jump Street, which is based on the TV show of the same name (the one where Johnny Depp used to play). Following the success of the first two installments, 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street, the film’s creators, lead actors, and producers, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, are expected to continue working on the project.
With the second installment’s box office exceeding its budget by around five times (as did the first installment, though the figures were slightly different — $200 million for the first chapter and $300 million for the second), the fate of the third installment is almost decided. Now, it depends on Tatum and Hill to make it come true.
What We Know So Far About 23 Jump Street
The film itself made fun of the idea of sequels at the end of 22 Jump Street, in the form of fictional ideas for a number of sequels to the film, as well as an animated series and a toy line. However, back in 2014, it was announced that there would be a 23 Jump Street film, and that it would be a crossover with the Men in Black franchise.
This information became public following the Sony hack. Lord and Miller were hired as writers and producers, respectively. MIB 23 was revealed as the title of the crossover film in 2016. However, the sequel/crossover film’s plans fell through, and it was cancelled in January 2019.
In interviews, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill both stated that the stakes were too high for a sequel, and that if it did happen, it would defeat the purpose of the joke itself. Not all hope is lost, however. After MIB 23 was cancelled, Phil Lord confirmed that a female-centric Jump Street film is also in the works.
Release Date 23 Jump Street
Tiffany Haddish and Zendaya are rumored to play a mother-daughter duo in the franchise reboot. Awkwafina is also in negotiations to appear in the film.
The film will be titled 24 Jump Street and will be released in 2021, at the latest. If Lord and Miller still intend to bring back the famous cop buddies Jenko and Schmidt, we can expect 23 Jump Street in 2024.
Cast of 23 Jump Street
In August 2015, it was announced that 23 Jump Street would be released. It will once again star Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. At the same time, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will no longer direct the film; instead, they will write and produce it.
The plot will most likely revolve around two adults, undercover agents, who are forced into a high school to pose as students while actually following the school drug scene.
