It sounds like Serena Williams wouldn't be opposed to a sequel to — or a trilogy for — King Richard.

While in conversation with Insider this week, the 40-year-old tennis icon expressed interest in seeing more of her and sister Venus Williams' story told onscreen following the success of 2021's Oscar-winning King Richard — a biopic film that follows the athletes' early years with their father, Richard Williams (played by Will Smith).
