Here is the story so far. Bumblebee, who is on the run in 1987, seeks refuge in a junkyard in a small California coastal town. Charlie Watson, on the verge of turning 18 and attempting to find her place in the world, comes across Bumblebee, a battle-scarred and damaged Transformer. The Autobots, headed by Optimus Prime, are on the verge of losing the Great Cybertronian War to their adversaries, the Decepticons, and have begun making plans to depart the planet.
Optimus sends a young scout, B-127, to Earth to set up a base of operations where the Autobots can regroup. This is after being ambushed by the Decepticons headed by Shockwave, Soundwave, and Starscream during the evacuation. B-127 crashes-lands in California in 1987, disrupting a training exercise being conducted by Sector 7, a secret government entity that monitors extraterrestrial activities on Earth. Colonel Jack Burns, a Sector 7 agent, believes B-127 is a hostile intruder and attacks, pushing him into the forest, where he is ambushed by the Decepticon Blitzwing.

Blitzwing takes off B-127’s speech box and ruins his memory core when he refuses to give Optimus’ location. Before falling from his wounds, B-127 manages to destroy Blitzwing. B-127 scans and changes into a yellow 1967 Volkswagen Beetle before entering stasis. The success of Bumblebee opens up a plethora of potential possibilities. Now, Bumblebee was a prequel, but it was more or less set in the same timeline.
Things become more tricky when we consider that a direct sequel to The Dark Knight is in the works. That suggests, despite the criticism, the creators have not abandoned the original time frame. As a result, the sequel Bumblebee 2 will remain in the past. It will be exploring a period shortly after the events of the first Bumblebee.
Bumblebee 2 has yet to be given an official release date. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the next instalment in the Transformers franchise, will be released on June 24, 2022. People are speculating that this is the BumbleBee sequel, but the filmmakers have stated that this is not the BumbleBee sequel, but rather the next instalment in the Transformer series.We can expect Bumblebee 2 to be released in 2023, if the studio doesn’t release two films of the same genre in the same year.
Hailee Steinfeld will reprise her role as Charlie Watson and John Cena will reprise his role as Sector 7 agent Jack Burns, depending on when the sequel is set. Jorge Lendeborg Jr., who plays Charlie’s next-door neighbor Memo, Pamela Adlon, who plays Charlie’s mother Sally Watson, and Stephen Schneider, who plays Charlie’s stepfather Ron, are all expected to return.Bumblebee was voiced by Dylan O’Brien in the spin-off film, but unless the sequel wants to completely depart from the Transformers universe, don’t expect him to return because Bumblebee doesn’t have a voice and talks through the radio instead.
Bumblebee had its global premiere in Berlin on December 3, 2018, and was released theatrically in the United States on December 21, 2018, collecting $468 million worldwide, making it the franchise’s lowest-grossing film but still a box-office triumph.
