Is Purple Hearts 2 happening?
As of August 2023, Netflix has not indicated that a sequel is in the works. The odds there is purple hearts 2 are slim to non-existent. The romantic drama comes to an end quite neatly when Cassie and Luke get together. A continuation of the story therefore seems unnecessary.
However, should there be a sequel, it could follow the lives of Cassie and Luke as a real-life married couple. Maybe they could even have children. As with any married couple, there will be problems. Remember Luke was kicked out of the US Marine Corps after being accused of fraud. This could cause problems in their relationship as Luke struggles to find a job. Then Cassie’s singing career takes off. This means that she will be out on various tours and will never really be home. This could also create tension in their relationship.

Rosenbaum echoed Carson’s views, and Variety teased that there had been talks of continuing the story in a sequel, albeit “nothing official.” The director told Variety:
“I mean, I could watch those two and their chemistry all day. And they’re just great people to work with, so I’m definitely not ruling that out. We wouldn’t do anything if we didn’t really, really like it because we want to stay true to integrity. We haven’t landed on anything concrete yet. It’s always a possibility.”
Galitzine was also responding to the film’s success and fan reaction to wanting another film. Here’s what the actor said to the people in August 2022:
“We’ll definitely see what happens. Even in private we joke about what would happen and how we might be able to continue the story because the script has to be good. It should make sense. It should work. There are many different possibilities and we’ll wait and see if it’s the right story. But it’s very cool to see people asking for a second one.”

The actor elaborated on that sentiment further, expressing his gratitude for the work he was able to do and the advancement he brings as an actor with each role. However, he ended his response with, “We’ll see what happens.” We’re all calmly optimistic.”
