Horrible Bosses 3: Release date, Cast, and more information

Back in 2011, Horrible Bosses did a gangbuster business and were a smash hit in audiences. It centered around Nick, Dale, and Kurt, hatching a scheme to get rid of their respective employers, which did not turn out as planned and added comedy twists to the plot. Horrible Bosses grossed over $200 million at the worldwide box office and was quickly renewed for another part that arrived in 2014. But sadly, the sequel was not received well by the viewers, and since there, we have heard nothing about a potential Horrible Bosses. Thus, we are keen to know whether Horrible Bosses 3 is still on the cards, or not. Here is everything that is known about a possible third part of the franchise.

Horrible Bosses 3 Release date: When will it get aired?

Bateman in one of his interview stated that people didn’t really pay enough attention when Horrible Bosses part 2 came out. It was as though many of the audience wasn’t expecting a sequel. Hence, it is unlikely that there will be a third part in the franchise.  

Nevertheless, it’s been over eight years since the second movie was released and there has been no news about a potential third movie. Some of the actors in both the first and second film have also not revealed anything about it either and even if a new movie does indeed happen, it will be difficult to get the same actors back on the set again due to their involvement in other projects. 

Therefore, we have come to a conclusion that perhaps Horrible Bosses 3 will not happen considering the many years that has already passed. However, let’s still wait for official updates and see how things go.

Horrible Bosses 3 Plot: What could it be about?

We have no exact plot synopsis of Horrible Bosses three at this point because let’s be true that nobody is thinking about it. In that case, we may look back at the plotlines of the last two seasons, and try to guess what could be a potential Horrible Bosses three. Season one centered around three friends, Nick, Dale, and Kurt, who plan to kill their bosses, with the help of a hitman, Jones, as their murder consultant. The first season saw a series of comedy sequences, in which Dave Harken (Nick’s boss) mistakes Bobby (Kurt’s current employer) as his wife’s lover, and kills him. Harken then tries to frame the trio in Bobby’s murder, but the navigation system operator bails them out of the situation. Season two had a similar theme, with the trio abducting an investor who had put their company under threat. 

It is pointless to think of a third part coming as it’s been seven years since its 2014 sequel made a theatrical debut. 

Horrible Bosses 3 Cast: Know which cast and characters  might return

Seth Gordon served as the director of the film, while Michael Markowitz wrote the screenplay along with Jonathan Goldstein, and John Francis Daley.

  1. In the first season, Dave Harken is a simpleton boss who thinks of Bobby as his boss’s husband, which leads to Bobby’s death. Can you imagine your own boss acting the same way?

  2. If you are looking for a good movie to watch this weekend, check out Horrible Bosses 3, which features a hilarious performance by Charlie Day.

  3. A harmless prank goes horribly wrong, sending the trio to prison. In prison, they meet a convict who tells them about how he has made money smuggling diamonds. Once released, they plan to pull off the scheme and escape.

  4. I was looking for something to watch on date night with my wife and this turned out to be a great choice. We both really enjoyed the film, there was a lot of humor, and we learned a lot about the evolution of technology from the first two films.

  5. Horrible bosses is a series of comedy movies. Once a year, in November, the story of three friends who decide to murder their Boss.
