He then wrote, “I love everything about whodunnits, but one of the things I love most is how malleable the genre is. There’s a whole tonal spectrum from Carr to Christie, and getting to explore that range is one of the most exciting things about making Benoit Blanc movies,” adding, “We’re about to go into production on the 3rd one, and I’m very, very excited to share the title, which gives a little hint of where it’s going.”

He soon shared a 45-second video referencing the first two titles and revealing the third one. Daniel gives a voiceover, saying, “In the beginning, the knives came out. Then, behold, the glass was shattered. But my most dangerous case yet is about to be revealed,” as the title card Wake Up Dead Man pops up on-screen. While nothing much about the Netflix feature is known yet, fans are already thrilled to see what Benoit has in store for them next. The film will be distributed by Netflix as part of Rian’s two-sequel deal with them. Wake Up Dead Man will release in 2025.
