Although Warner Bros. has not yet officially greenlighted the sequel, due to the massive and ongoing success of Crazy Rich Asians, they are moving forward with development. 

A few notable plotlines will further be developed in the sequel. This was obviously hinted at in the closing scene of Crazy Rich Asians, as you see Nick’s beautiful and newly single cousin Astrid (Gemma Chan) exchanging glances with a mysterious and handsome stranger in the roof-top engagement party.

And of crouse, China Rich Girlfriend will continue to follow the star couple and lovebirds, Nick and Rachel, as they travel to China to uncover the details of her father's life and past.

Lastly, some unlikely and quirky characters that will re-surface in the sequel are gold-digging Kitty Pong (played by Fiona Xie), the ample-bosomed "adult entertainment" actress who dumps her boyfriend in a heartbeat for party boy Bernard Tai (played by Jimmy O. Yang).

As of now, there is no official date for the release of the sequel, but be assured we will monitor the situation closely and let you know when any more news is announced.
