What’s next for 23 Jump Street? “21 Jump Street” and its sequel, “22 Jump Street” that starred Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as undercover cops Jenko and Schmidt brought them into high school and college, which leaves the question “what comes after college?” Read on to learn more about it.

At the conclusion of “22 Jump Street,” a montage of future sequels were presented humorously, including 23 Jump Street: Medical School and 24 Jump Street: Foreign Exchange, see what Tatum has to say for Sony Pictures and Original Films’ planned threequel.

"I feel like that would be a cop-out, College was the obvious next step for us. We had to go there. I don’t know what the next step is after college. Do we go and take down Enron? or the government in D.C.? I feel like it’s all redundant" told Tatum in his interview with USA Today.

The 2014 sequel received generally positive reviews and grossed over $327 million at the box office, defined the meaning of the word “sequel”, proving to be, if not more, just as hilarious as its predecessor. "The big running joke of the second movie is this is just going to be bigger … Then the first time, I don’t know if that joke works three times, so we’ll see."

Sony Pictures and Original Films have set “23 Jump Street” in motion, hiring scribe Rodney Rothman, who wrote the script for the 2nd pic, to return and write for the third installment. Rothman has written for the “Late Show with David Letterman,” as well as the film “Grudge Match.” He has served as executive producer for “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Year One,” as well as producer for “Get Him to the Greek” and “The Five Year Engagement.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who have both teamed up on “21 Jump Street” and its sequel “22 Jumpstreet,” will co-produce the film along with Neal Moritz, Hill and Tatum, although, no confirmations yet if they will direct the said threequel.

“21 Jump Street” and its sequel, “22 Jump Street,” both received general positive reviews and were both a critical and commercial success, with the former grossing  $138,447,667 in North America and $63,137,661 in other countries, for a worldwide total of $201,585,328, becoming no. 1 top-grossing movie under the high school comedy genre, while its sequel grossed $190.6 million in North America and $128.8 million in other countries, with a worldwide total of $319.4 million.
