Netflix has announced that the sequel to director McG's 2017 horror comedy THE BABYSITTER will be available to watch through their streaming service as of September 10th, and along with this announcement comes the unveiling of a handful of stills from the film. The images can be seen below.

Titled THE BABYSITTER: KILLER QUEEN, the sequel was directed by McG from a screenplay he wrote with Dan Lagana, Brad Morris, and Jimmy Warden. The synopsis: 

Two years after defeating a satanic cult led by his babysitter Bee, Cole’s trying to forget his past and focus on surviving high school. But when old enemies unexpectedly return, Cole will once again have to outsmart the forces of evil.

The cast includes Judah Lewis, Emily Alyn Lind, Jenna Ortega, Robbie Amell, Andrew Bachelor, Leslie Bibb, Hana Mae Lee, Bella Thorne, Ken Marino, Chris Wylde, Carl McDowell, Juliocesar Chavez, Maximilian Acevedo, Jennifer Foster, and Helen Hong.

It's surprising to hear (and see) that some of those actors have returned for KILLER QUEEN, since their characters were killed off in the previous film. They're the "old enemies" that "unexpectedly return". Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Samara Weaving – who played THE BABYSITTER herself – came back for this one.

While it's disappointing that Weaving isn't in the cast, I'm still looking forward to watching THE BABYSITTER: KILLER QUEEN, because I had a lot of fun watching the first movie. Then again, I enjoyed McG's CHARLIE'S ANGELS movie back in the day, then didn't like his follow-up CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE, so this director has let me down with a sequel before. I'll approach KILLER QUEEN with cautious optimism.
