The cult classic shark horror franchise 'Deep Blue Sea' is all set to release its third movie. Not much is known about the R-rated 'Deep Blue Sea 3' but we do know that it will be a direct sequel to 2018's 'Deep Blue Sea 2', although none of the human characters from that movie are expected to make an appearance again. Here’s everything you need to know about the project:

Release Date

'Deep Blue Sea 3' is currently scheduled to release via Video On Demand on July 28, 2020.


The movie will revolve around a scientist trying to study the effects of climate change on Great White shark populations. However, their studies are disturbed when another team arrives trying to locate three bull sharks that may be the ones who escaped at the end of the previous movie. Here's the full synopsis for the film: "Dr Emma Collins and her team are spending their third summer on the island of Little Happy studying the effect of climate change on the great white sharks who come to the nearby nursery every year to give birth. Along with the last two inhabitants of this former fishing village, their peaceful life is disrupted when a 'scientific' team led by her ex-boyfriend and marine biologist Richard show up looking for three bull sharks who we soon learn aren't just any bull sharks."

In the movie, she will be playing the lead role of Dr Emma Collins, a scientist who is inadvertently caught in a dangerous situation with intelligent sharks on one side and her ex-boyfriend on the other.

Nathaniel Buzolic ('The Vampire Diaries') plays Emma's ex Richard Lowell, whose arrival sets off the film's events. Other cast members include Emerson Brooks as Eugene Shaw, Bren Foster as Lucas, Reina Aoi as Miya, Alex Bhat as Spin, Ernest St Clair as Schill, Siya Mayola as Bahari, DeVille Vannik as Earls, and Brashaad Mayweather as Brown.

'Deep Blue Sea 3' has been directed by John Pogue, who is best known for his work on 'The Quiet Ones'. The movie was written by Dirk Blackman ('Underworld: Rise of the Lycans') and has been produced by Tom Keniston, Hunt Lowry, and Patty Reed. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is handling the distribution.


A trailer for the movie was released online on June 17. The clip reveals the premise and wastes no time before getting into the excitement of shark attacks. The trailer teases that climate change may be responsible for these killer sharks but there's also a suggestion that these may be the same genetically engineered creatures we saw in 'Deep Blue Sea 2'.
