Extraction 3 Addressed By Netflix Film Boss, Idris Elba’s Franchise Future Teased-TGN


  • Extraction 3 is officially in development and will continue the story of Tyler Rake and Nik as they take on another mission assigned by Alcott.
  • Idris Elba’s character, Alcott, is expected to play a major role in the franchise’s future and may even have a spinoff centered around him.
  • Netflix is committed to expanding and evolving the Extraction franchise, with potential spinoffs exploring the characters of Nik and Yaz Khan, and continuing the intense action of Tyler Rake in Extraction 3.



Netflix film boss Scott Stuber addresses Extraction 3 and teases Idris Elba’s future in the franchise. The Netflix film series, which started in 2020, follows Chris Hemsworth as Tyler Rake, a black ops mercenary who undergoes dangerous extraction missions. Extraction 2, released in June 2023, introduced Idris Elba as an unnamed character credited as Alcott, who is expected to play a major role in the franchise moving forward, including in Extraction 3, which is already officially in development.

In an interview with Collider, Stuber shared an Extraction 3 update and teased Elba’s future in the franchise. The Netflix film boss says they are continuing to work on the script, but are being careful not to rush the creative process. Furthermore, “Getting Idris (Elba) into the franchise was an interesting way to kind of evolve it,” Stuber says. See his full comments below:

You know, you’ve got to find the right thing. I think the second one was so good because it was emotional and complex. It kind of reminds me of when I worked on the Bourne movies. Tony Gilroy did such a good job on the second one of making it emotional and making that kind of activate around Franka (Potente’s) death. So, this one had the same kind of familial background around Chris (Hemsworth’s) motivation. Getting Idris (Elba) into the franchise was an interesting way to kind of evolve it. So we’re waiting on the script and working hard, but aspiration would be great to get it back. I mean, what those guys have done has been really great in that franchise.

Extraction 3, which was officially announced shortly after the sequel’s success on Netflix, is set to pick up after the Extraction 2 ending and follow Tyler and his mercenary partner Nik (Golshifteh Farahani) as they embark on another mission assigned to them by Alcott in exchange for their freedom. Though Alcott only appears sparingly in the sequel, the introduction of Elba’s character is meant to evolve and expand the franchise, as Stuber and others have teased. Producer Anthony Russo has even teased an Extraction spinoff centered on Elba’s enigmatic character.

Director Sam Hargrave also sees “so much room for this franchise to expand,” teasing another Extraction spinoff centered on the siblings Nik and Yaz Khan (Adam Bessa), the former becoming something of a fan-favorite character following her expanded role in Extraction 2. That spinoff would have to be a prequel, of course, considering Yaz’s death in Extraction 2. Whatever direction the spinoffs decide to take, it’s clear that Netflix intends to expand and evolve the action franchise moving forward, and they are already committed to continuing the bloody and brutal adventures of Tyler Rake with Extraction 3.

Extraction and Extraction 2 are streaming on Netflix. Extraction 3 does not yet have a release date.
