Does the Whodunit Mystery ‘Knives Out’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Rian Johnson has been doing his best to prevent spoilers for his upcoming whodunit thriller, Knives Out, even going so far as to warn people against watching the trailers, which may give away key moments. Perhaps it’s the mystery about the mystery movie that has fans so curious and already asking for more. 

With critics raving about the film, fans are asking if they’ll see a sequel to the new thriller. And, more importantly, is a Knives Out sequel set up with a post-credits scene? 

Is there a post-credits scene for Knives Out?

The answer is not exactly. There is no post-credits scene but a very important sound can be heard during the credits. A sound that, honestly, sums up the end of the film pretty well. So, please, we are issuing a warning much in the same way Rian did about the trailers. Although all we are discussing here is one simple sound, it’s a sound that is crucial to understanding the film and one very important character’s story arc in particular.

The barking of the dogs was an important clue in the mystery as dogs could be heard barking at 3 a.m. on the night Harlan Thrombey died. When Ransom arrives for the reading of the will, the dogs bark at him. It could simply be a coincidence, but is it?

If there’s any doubt by the end of the film who the killer (almost) was, the faint sound of dogs barking throughout the credits leaves little room for question. 

So will there be a sequel?

Most likely, but not with the same cast. Knives Out wraps up the mystery of Harlan’s death, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for more sequels that tell different stories.

Rian created the film in an homage to Agatha Christie’s stories, who used the character Miss Marple, a consulting detective, to tell many different mysteries in her novels. Much like how Daniel Craig and Lakeith Stanfield are central characters in Knives Out as a pair of detectives looking into Harlan’s murder.
