Did you watch the first Jurassic World and think, “This needs more Jeff Goldblum?” Well, you’re in luck for the sequel. Life found a way.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Goldblum will return to the franchise in 2018’s Jurassic World 2. It will be his first time back since 1997’s The Lost World.
Goldblum will once again play Dr Ian Malcolm, the mathematician and proponent of Chaos Theory who survived the first film and returned in the sequel, this time as the island’s biggest critic. What the character has been doing since then, and what he thinks of the fact Jurassic World was so successful for a while, are just a few of the many, many questions we have now that we know he’s returning.
Almost nothing is known about the sequel, which is currently filming. All we do know is Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning, J.A. Bayona is directing, and a few new actors have been added. Now they will be dealing with the world’s foremost expert on dinosaur theme park survival.
Jurassic World 2, which won’t be called that, opens in the US 22 June 2018.
