‘Spy Kids’ Netflix Reboot: Everything We Know So Far



‘Spy Kids’ Netflix Reboot: Everything We Know So Far

After the success of We Can Be Heroes, Netflix is teaming up with Robert Rodriguez once again, but this time to reboot the fan-favorite Spy Kids franchise.

Although not officially named, the new movie is expected to be called Spy Kids: Armageddon and will focus on a new family of spies. Here’s everything we know about the new movie.

Robert Rodriguez will again write, produce and direct the movie, just like the first four Spy Kids installments.

Rodriguez recently did the aforementioned We Can Be Heroes movie for Netflix and episodes for the Star Wars series The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.

We Can Be Heroes is set in the Spy Kids universe serving as a sequel to the 2005 film The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D. Said movie has become one of the most successful kids’ movies in Netflix history, watched by 53 million households during the first four weeks on the service.

The new film will be made in partnership with Skydance Media and Spy Kids rights owner Spyglass Media, which a year ago inked a deal with Rodriguez to work on redeveloping the property.

Spy Kids: Armageddon, although without its title at the time, was originally announced on March 30, 2022.

David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger will produce for Skydance, which will oversee development and production. Elizabeth Avellan and Racer Max will also produce. Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre will executive produce.

What’s the plot of Spy Kids: Armageddon?

Plot details for the movie are very scarce, but we have a small logline nonetheless:

“A relaunch a classic family franchise which will revolve around the activities of a multicultural family. Tony and Patty must use all their gaming skills to save their spy parents who have been kidnapped by an evil man.”

Netflix has also provided another synopsis for the upcoming reboot:

“When the children of the world’s greatest secret agents unwittingly help a powerful Game Developer unleash a computer virus that gives him control of all technology, they must become spies themselves to save their parents and the world.”

Two spy kids who have their parents kidnapped surely resembles the setup of the first Spy Kids movie with Tony and Patty being the new Juni and Carmen.

It is unclear at this moment whether Spy Kids: Armageddon is a full total reboot or a soft reboot.

In the case of the former, this would be like The Karate Kid starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, which is in a whole separate universe from the original Karate Kid movies and Cobra Kai. Therefore no characters from The Karate Kid can ever appear in Cobra Kai.

But if this is only a soft reboot set in the same universe as the original movies, there is very much a chance for the original cast to appear. Perhaps older Juni and Carmen can even become some sort of mentor figures to the new kids as it often happens with legacy characters.

In our opinion, the likeliest character to reappear would be Danny Trejo as Machete with his cool spy gadgets.

Who is cast in Spy Kids: Armageddon?

Two waves of casting announcements have come for the new Netflix Spy Kids movie so far.

The first batch of announcements came in June 2022 with Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin, LOST OLLIE), Zachary Levi (Shazam!, Chuck), Everly Carganilla (Yes Day), and Connor Esterson added to the cast.

In July 2022, it was announced the Billy Magnussen is due to star.

D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is also expected to be involved in the movie, as is Neal Kodinsky (1883), who will play Villain Vargos.

What’s the production status of Spy Kids: Armageddon?

Netflix’s Spy Kids: Armageddon is now in the development stage with not much further details

Filming reportedly got underway in the middle of June 2022 with filming taking place in Austin, TX.

On August 31st, Robert Rodriguez took to Instagram to share that they had wrapped on the new movie.

In the post, the director and screenwriter for the movie said:

“Just wrapped a new SPYkids for @Netflix, working with my son Racer Max! First foto is from the set of SPYkids 2 in 2002. Not much has changed, only now he’s co-writer, co-producer, and a little heavier.”

What’s the Netflix release date for Spy Kids: Armageddon?

Netflix hasn’t announced a release date for Spy Kids: Armageddon, but considering its early development stage, it would stand to reason that the movie won’t come out for a while. Perhaps the second half of 2023.

We’ll let you know as soon as we hear any more details – watch this space!


List Of Canceled Netflix Original Series In 2023

List of all the shows Netflix has canceled in 2023.



2023 has kicked off with a couple of big cancelations, which signals a potentially rough year coming up, which many other players throughout Hollywood will share. Here’s a look at the 2023 cancelations!


The big-budget series from the creators of DARK had big expectations and big shoes to fill.

The mystery sci-fi show was one of Netflix’s most ambitious shows in years, using state-of-the-art technology and featuring an impressive ensemble cast.

Why was 1899 canceled?

Data provided to What’s on Netflix from European SVOD analytics company Digital i suggests that the completion rate was ultimately too low and likely wasn’t growing substantially. Their data suggests only around a third of people who started the show went onto finish the title.

Inside Job

The animated series Inside Job had been initially given a season 2 renewal order back in June 2022. Still, in January 2023, the creator confirmed rumors that Netflix had reversed the decision to renew.

In a statement on Twitter, the show’s creator Shion Takeuchi said:

I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to been able to share what was in store with you all.

He added, “To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”

Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?



Netflix Movie Lou Cast: Who Stars in the Netflix Thriller?

Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett are the main attraction of the Netflix movie Lou as the two leading ladies. Janney plays a John Wick-esque character (complete with a beloved dog, but don’t worry, Jax makes it out alive!) while Smollett plays her neighbor, Hannah.

Lou is a hardened recluse living on the fringes of their secluded island, while Hannah is a single mother struggling to make ends meet to take care of her daughter, Vee.

A horrible storm hits the island, and someone kidnaps Hannah’s daughter in the midst of it, forcing her to turn to Lou for help. While searching for Vee, the two women are forced to confront some of the dark secrets from their past.

Even though Smollett and Janney are the stars, Lou has a great cast of actors that also includes Logan Marshall-Green and Greyston Holt (remember him as one of the hot werewolves from Bitten?).

Netflix movie Lou cast list

For those unfamiliar with Allison Janney, the powerhouse actress is a Hollywood staple. Throughout her many decades in the business, Janney has won countless accolades, including seven Primetime Emmy Awards, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award. She has also secured two Tony nominations.

Janney first rose to prominence playing C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. More recently, she starred as Bonnie Plunkett for nine seasons in the CBS sitcom Mom. Janney won her Oscar for I, Tonya, and has also appeared in projects like Masters of Sex, The Help, Juno, and many others. Next, she’ll star in the comedy miniseries Mrs. American Pie, the comedy film The People We Hate at the Wedding, and the sci-fi drama True Love.

Jurnee Smollett has been acting since she was a kid, with recurring roles in shows like Full House and On Our Own. But most people probably know her as Jess Merriweather in Friday Night Lights. The last few years have really helped cement Smollet’s status as a superstar. She played Dinah Lance/Black Canary in Birds of Prey and is reportedly going to reprise her role in a spinoff standalone movie at HBO Max.

Smollett also delivered an incredible performance in the short-lived but acclaimed HBO series Lovecraft Country and she recently starred opposite Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix thriller Spiderhead. Next, she’ll star in the courtroom drama film The Burial with Jamie Foxx and Tommy Lee Jones.

Completing the cast trifecta is Logan Marshall-Green, who plays the film’s primary antagonist, Philip. You might recall Marshall-Green playing Trey Atwood in The O.C. He also recently completed a stint on the ABC series Big Sky.

Here’s the complete cast list for the Netflix movie:

  • Allison Janney as Lou
  • Jurnee Smollett as Hannah
  • Logan Marshall-Green as Philip
  • Ridley Asha Bateman as Vee
  • Matt Craven as Sheriff Rankin
  • Greyston Holt as Chris
  • Daniel Bernhardt as Tony
  • RJ Fetherstonhaugh as Gerry
  • Andres Collantes as Deputy Torres
  • Marci T. House as Agent Lee
  • Toby Levins as Agent Hampton

Netflix movie Lou starts streaming on Friday, September 23.
