Rachel True to reprise her role in Half Baked 2 

The sequel will also see the return of yet another original cast in Harland Williams

Published: 12th November 2022

After being in production for a couple of years, Half Baked 2, the follow-up to the 1998 film is ready. The filming for the project — which occurred entirely in Baton Rouge, Louisiana — has wrapped. It is also learnt that Rachel True, who played fan-favourite Mary Jane, is back to reprise her role in the sequel along with a host of new faces joining the cast.

Dexter Darden (Maze Runner), Moses Storm (Unfriended), Ramona Young (Never Have I Ever), Ash Santos (True Story), Joel Courtney (The Kissing Booth), and David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) will be the new cast set to be introduced in the sequel. 

While Chappelle won't be reprising his role as Thurgood Jenkins. But his character lives on in this sequel as the story will centre on his son JR (Darden) and his friends as they explore marijuana use. The team of best friends, including JR, Miles (Storm), and Cori (Young), is on a quest to gather money for the funeral arrangements of their friend Bruce (Courtney) who kicked the bucket after "smoking the most powerful joint in the world."

Producers are hoping that the sequel will build upon the success of the original film. The original movie was critically panned and barely made double its $8 million budget, however, the film rose to cult status following a re-release on DVD. 

The sequel will also see the return of yet another original cast in Harland Williams. There are also special appearances from Frankie Muniz, and comedian Jeff Ross. Justin Hires (21 Jump Street) penned the script which was directed by Michael Tiddes (Sextuplets). Griff Furst serves as the producer.

A release date is yet to be set for Half Baked 2, however, producers are planning a worldwide non-theatrical release next year.
