The original centered on four older women who have all attended a weekly book club together for 40 years.
The highly anticipated sequel follows the four best friends as they take their book club to Italy for the fun girls trip they never had. When things go off the rails and secrets are revealed, their relaxing vacation turns into a once-in-a-lifetime cross-country adventure.
“The book says that we can’t reject our destiny,” Steenburgen’s character tells her friends while holding The Alchemist book in the trailer. “And I think we should all go to Italy.”
Written and directed by Bill Holderman, “Book Club: The Next Chapter” is set for release on May 12, 2023.
