According to Netflix, the most watched movie in the company’s history is ExtractionNot Roma, not Bird Box, not Fear Street, not The Irishman, not 6 Underground. Extraction, with Chris Hemsworth as a mercenary named Tyler Rake who is hired to perform a (dramatic pause) extraction of an Indian drug kingpin’s kidnapped son. Netflix claims it’s been watched by 99 million households.

The film appeared to end with Tyler Rake’s death — although its final scene showed a brief glimpse of a guy who could have been him, miraculously alive. Then the movie became a massive success on Extraction and reports appeared that the Russo brothers — who produced and co-wrote the film — were working on a sequel.

Clearly, those reports were correct. As part of Netflix’s online Tudum event, a teaser was shown announcing that Extraction 2 is indeed in the works, and that Hemsworth will return in the film as the (apparently unkillable!) Tyler Rake. Watch it below:

So there you go: Look for Extraction 2: Rake’s Revenge (or whatever they actually call it) coming to Netflix soon. Will it be watched by more people than the original film?
