Code 8 is set in a world where 4% of the population is born with some type of supernatural ability, but instead of being billionaires or superheroes, most ‘specials’ face discrimination, often being confronted by advanced, militarised police technology, and live in poverty.

.

In Code 8: Part II, it follows the journey of a teenage girl fighting to get justice for her slain brother at the hands of corrupt police officers. After becoming a witness to the cover-up, she becomes a target and enlists the help of an ex-con, Connor Reed, and his former partner-in-crime, Garrett. Together, they face a highly regarded and well protected police sergeant who will use every tool to prevent himself from being exposed.

Robbie Amell released a statement saying:

There’s nothing better than working with family and friends. Code 8 was the embodiment of that. I can’t wait to get back to work on the sequel.

.

Stephen Amell released a statement saying:

Code 8 is an incredibly personal and special project for all of us. We built the world in the first one and now we’re ready to blow it out!

.

Jeff Chan released a statement saying:

We’re beyond thrilled to get the team back together and bring more of the Code 8 universe to our very passionate fans. We know this is a sequel that will push the story to new heights.

The original film raised $2.5m from more than 35,000 backers through Indiegogo, making it the second-largest crowdfunded original film of all time. Jeff Chan has co-written the screenplay for the sequel alongside Chris Paré, Sherren Lee and Jesse LaVercombe. The Ammell’s will serve as producers alongside Chan and Paré.
