Bad Boys, which was released in 2020, received positive reviews, but development on a possible Bad Boys 4 has been slow. While Michael Bay directed the first two films in the franchise, the third installment was significantly delayed due to the involvement of multiple directors.
When Bad Boys was released on January 14, 2020, it alluded to the possibility of additional films continuing the narrative. However, more than two years later, the franchise’s future remains uncertain. Bad Boys for Life received favorable reviews from critics despite a lackluster performance during its opening weekend.
Initially, studios committed to producing Bad Boys 4, and a script was written, but the status of the project is presently uncertain. Here’s what you can expect (and what you shouldn’t) from Bad Boys 4 in the future.

What is the Renewal Status of Bad Boys 4?
Through an announcement video posted to Will Smith’s Instagram, he and Martin Lawrence have confirmed the impending release of Bad Boys 4. In January 2020, the highly anticipated legacy sequel Bad Boys 3 was released and proved to be a phenomenally profitable action film.
Bad Boys, the third installment in the series, was a significant release just before the outbreak of the pandemic and grossed $425 million at the box office. With the announcement of Bad Boys 4, fans can anticipate more action-packed adventures from these iconic characters.
Bad Boys 4 Release Date: When Will It Air?
Despite previous delays, Sony Pictures began production on Bad Boys 4 simultaneously with the release of the third installment, indicating a potential release in the near future. Given the production schedule for Bad Boys for Life, it is possible that Bad Boys 4 could have been released in 2023.
However, production progress on the next Bad Boys film has been relatively sluggish, indicating an extended-release window. Fortunately, the groundwork for the plot of Bad Boys 4 has already been laid, making it simpler to begin filming once the project has moved forward.
Who Will Reappear in Bad Boys 4?
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will definitely be back in Bad Boys 4, but we don’t know much about the rest of the group. There is a good chance that Paola Nez will come back as Rita, who is also an officer with the team. Rita was made Captain in Bad Boys for Life, and since their old boss, Captain Howard (Joe Pantoliano), died, Lowrey and Burnett will need someone to lead them.
Also, a scene in the middle of the credits gives a hint that Armando might be in the fourth movie. Armando, who was played by Jacob Scipio, spent the whole movie trying to get back at Lowrey for bringing down his parents’ drug gang. But it turns out that Lowrey is Armando’s real father because he had an affair with Armando’s mother while he was working secretly.
Even though Armando’s actions in the past killed many people and got him locked up, the ending suggests that Lowrey might be ready to help him get a lighter sentence in exchange for his help on a new case. The next movie’s main plot will probably be based on this story.
What Can We Expect From Bad Boys 4?
Unfortunately, the scene after the credits doesn’t tell us much about the case at hand, but it does make it clear that Armando will be engaged. Given that he grew up as an assassin for a Mexican cartel and was raised by the wife of a famous drug lord, it is likely that he knows a lot about different foreign criminal organizations.
In Bad Boys 4, Lowrey and Burnett will probably have to deal with a new crime group trying to set up a shop in Miami. Armando’s knowledge could help them deal with this new threat. The IMDb page used to have a short summary of the story, but now it just says “Plot unknown.”
In the first summary, it was said that a “modern, highly specialized police unit” would join forces with the Bad Boys to deal with a new threat in Miami.
Even though the present state of this summary is unclear, Bad Boys for Life co-writer Chris Bremner has been hired to write the fourth installment, so it is possible that this “highly specialized police unit” will still be in the next movie.
