The first Code 8 raised $2.5 million from more than 35K backers through Indiegogo, making it the second-largest crowdfunded original film of all time. The film also set the record for the highest-grossing-day-and-date release for Elevation Pictures in Canada and for Vertical Entertainment in the U.S. Code 8 also performed very well on Netflix when it hit the streamer, ranking at No.1 in several countries, including the U.S., when it hit the platform.

In the sequel, "after witnessing the murder of her brother and subsequent cover-up, a teenage girl with abnormal abilities seeks to help of an ex-con (Robbie Amell) and his former partner-in-crime (Stephen Amell). Together, they face a unit of corrupt police officers who deploy advanced robotic technology to prevent themselves from being exposed."
