Luke Benward Talks Possible 'Dumplin' Sequel & If Bo Would Be Part of It

Luke Benward, aka Bo from Dumplin and the internet’s reigning boyfriend, sat down recently with THR about a possible sequel to the movie.

While nothing has been announced, the 23-year-old actor is definitely on board.

“I know that there is a sequel in the books. She [Julie Murphy] just wrote ‘Puddin’’, and I believe the lead of that would be Maddie Baillio’s character, Millie, but I haven’t received any news that it’s actually going to production,” Luke shared. “I just know there is a template for it, but we’ll see in this next year.”

Luke also opened up about why Bo was a favorite character of his to play.

“I was really refreshed, honestly, to get this boyfriend – the boy-next-door love interest – who isn’t just a monotone side character,” he shared. “He’s a very pivotal character, and he’s very dynamic, and has these beautiful scenes with Willowdean that are so honest and raw and are truly the through line of the main story, which is accept yourself.”

Dumplin’ is streaming on Netflix now.
