"Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery" Coming to Netflix

Benoit Blanc returns in his most dangerous case yet

May 24, 2024 — We first met the famed private detective in 2019’s Knives Out, when he was hired to investigate the death of best-selling author Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). Blanc teamed up with nurse Marta Cabrera (Ana de Armas) to uncover the truth in a twisted case filled with angry relatives, red herrings, and fabulous knitwear.

Blanc’s skills were called upon once more in "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery," when he headed to Greece to peel back the the layers of intrigue surrounding tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) and an eclectic group of disruptors. Blanc was last seen sitting on the beach of Bron’s estate on an idyllic Greek island, calmly pondering the chaotic events of his past few days. But the fiery ending of Glass Onion could also be seen as a beginning — to the master sleuth’s next chapter.

That’s right, Daniel Craig is back as the suave Southern investigator in "Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery," a new installment of the whodunnit franchise written and directed by Rian Johnson. Blanc will be unraveling a brand-new murder mystery in an as-yet-undisclosed setting, surrounded by a new colorful cast of suspects.

"Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery" is coming to Netflix globally in 2025.
