Between its largely positive critical reception and making roughly $238.5 million worldwide off a $30 million budget, Crazy Rich Asians, adapted from the same-named book by Kevin Kwan, went down as one of 2018’s biggest cinematic successes. So it was hardly surprising when Warner Bros. decided to order a sequel based on China Rich Girlfriend, the next book in Kawn’s literary trilogy. As we near the halfway point of 2022, it’s still unclear when Crazy Rich Asians 2 (as it’s informally known) will come out, but as the wait continues, it’s been revealed that a Crazy Rich Asians spinoff is also in the works.

Jason Kim, a producer and writer on the HBO series Barry, has been tapped to pen a spinoff based following Gemma Chan’s Astrid Leong-Teo and her romance with Harry Shum Jr.’s Charlie Wu, the latter of whom cameoed at the end of Crazy Rich Asians. According to Deadline, Kim came in with a “dynamite pitch” about this couple’s story, resulting in Warner Bros. putting it into early development. Astrid and Charlie’s relationship was explored in China Rich Girlfriend, so the studio is taking a two-pronged approach with adapting the book, as Constance Wu’s Rachel Chu and Henry Golding’s Nick Young will remain the stars of Crazy Rich Asians 2
