Apatow expressed his enthusiasm for the project in a recent interview, saying, “I would love to do it, but right now, it’s all about, ‘is my family available? Their schedules are getting tight.'” The “family” he refers to includes his wife, Leslie Mann, and their two daughters, Maude and Iris Apatow, who all starred in the original film.

The original film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $138 million worldwide. It was praised for its relatable portrayal of marriage, family, and middle age. A sequel would likely explore similar themes, with Pete and Debbie facing new challenges and milestones as they approach their 60s.
