A sequel to the film has been long discussed. Jack Black stated in 2011 he did not want to do a sequel, but in 2016 he had changed his mind, but said Linklater likely wanted to work on other material. However, other sources say he is not ruling out School of Rock 2, and other sources claim a rough script is already in the works or even written.

Although School of Rock 2 does not exist, a television show concept was brought to life on Nickelodeon, somewhat making it the School of Rock 2, continuing the storyline and casting many of the characters with new actors and changing the looks and personality of some.
