In addition to the original Spring Breakers, the trailer shows that it will include five new cast members.


Spring Breakers: The Second Coming was announced in May 6, 2014. Although the storyline will have connections with the previous film, it will include a new cast in addition to the original. The Second Coming, which Irvine Welsh has been attached to script, will focus on a set of Spring Breakers coming into conflict with Christian extremists.[1]

Upon the announcement, James Franco, who portrayed Alien in the original Spring Breakers, released a statement saying that the sequel was "not being done with Harmony Korine or his consent" and that the producers were "capitalizing on that innovative film to make money on a weak sequel" and attempting to "make money off someone else's creativity."[2]

On December 21, 2017, McGruff was cast as the male lead, and stated that The Second Coming would be officially released on March 22, 2019. On January 14, 2018, Selena Gomez was confirmed to reprise his role as Brit, Candy, and Cotty's friend, Faith. In February and March 2017, it was reported that Russell Stuart would return as the DJ, and that Carrie Underwood, Morgan Freeman,[3] Joel McHale, and Taylor John Smith had joined the cast.
