Doesn't seem like the stars are picking up the phone for Superbad 2.

The first Superbad is a classic comedy film that’s still loved today. Yet, somehow, it still hasn’t gotten a sequel despite earning $170 million at the box office in 2007. And according to director Judd Apatow, it's the stars who aren't on board.

According to an interview with Apatow on the “Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum” podcast, he doesn’t understand why the stars of the original aren’t clamoring to join him in making a sequel.

“I know that Jonah said, ‘Oh it’ll be funny to do it when we’re 70 or 80,’ but I really wanted them to do a ‘Superbad’ in college where Jonah flunks out of college and just shows up and visits Michael Cera at college.”

In January 2022, Superbad star Jonah Hill said he’d make an “old-folks-home-Superbad” when the cast is all 80, but Apatow thinks that a second one could be just as good as the first. In the interview, he says the cast expressed concern that they’d “screw up Superbad” by making a “crappy second one.” So far, it looks like Apatow is alone in wanting a sequel.

Even Hill’s fellow co-stars Michael Cera and Seth Rogen have sworn off committing to a sequel. Cera expressed his own reluctance and that the rest of the cast was “staunchly against” a sequel in Esquire’s Explain This series.

Rogen, who co-wrote and starred in Superbad, told LADBible in 2020 he’d “100% probably never touch” Superbad again. His reasoning? He doesn’t think it “requires improvement or anything to be built upon it.”

Apatow has been busy, though. His Netflix exclusive film The Bubble was released early last month. In our review, we said it “scores with an awesome cast but fizzles in meta-concept and design.”
