Now the actor who plays Bo, Luke Benward, has spoken about a possible Dumplin' sequel and we are SO HERE FOR IT.
Speaking to THR, Luke said that while nothing has been announced yet, he would definitely be on board.
“I know that there is a sequel in the books. She [Julie Murphy] just wrote ‘Puddin’’, and I believe the lead of that would be Maddie Baillio’s character, Millie, but I haven’t received any news that it’s actually going to production,” he said.
“I just know there is a template for it, but we’ll see in this next year.”
He also spoke about why he loved the character of Bo so much.
“I was really refreshed to get this boyfriend – the boy-next-door love interest – who isn’t just a monotone side character,” he shared.
“He’s a very pivotal character, and he’s very dynamic, and has these beautiful scenes with Willowdean that are so honest and raw and are truly the through line of the main story, which is accept yourself.”
