A Quiet Place Part II is still focused on the Abbott family, but there are quite a few more characters in the film than there were in the original. Here are all the cast members, what else they’ve starred in, and the characters they’re playing in the sequel.
John Krasinski as Lee Abbott
Lee died at the end of A Quiet Place, sacrificing himself to the creatures to save his children. He isn’t resurrected in the sequel, but he does appear in a flashback sequence at the beginning, which is set the day the creatures arrived on Earth. John Krasinski is a familiar face for many and he’s been in plenty of TV shows, most famously playing Jim Halpert in The Office and Jack Ryan in the Amazon series of the same name. He also starred in 13 Hours and voiced characters in BoJack Horseman and Robot Chicken. In addition to acting, Krasinski has taken to writing and directing, making his feature directorial debut with the dramedy The Hollars before co-writing and directing A Quiet Place and its sequel (which he penned on his own this time).
Emily Blunt as Evelyn Abbott
Evelyn is the Abbott matriarch and wife of Lee. She was pregnant for most of the first film and spent the majority of A Quiet Place Part II ensuring the safety of her children, including her newborn baby. Emily Blunt has a plethora of acting credits to her name and the projects she’s been in showcase her range — from dramas, musicals, and action films.

Millicent Simmonds starred in Wonderstruck, Andi Mack, and the TV movie Close Up.

Emmett is a new character introduced in A Quiet Place Part II. Before the creatures eradicated most of the human population, he was Lee’s friend and father to a son.

Cillian Murphy has had a long and storied career as an actor. He’s been in numerous films, including the sci-fi thriller Sunshine, Batman Begins, Inception, 28 Days Later…, Dunkirk, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Scoot McNairy has been in several popular films, including Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Gone Girl, 12 Years a Slave, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Argo.
