22 Jump Street, the hit sequel to directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s 2012 action-comedy 21 Jump Street, should arrive on home video before the end of the year.
If you were hoping to revisit the adventures of Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) within the cozy confines of your own home, then you still have several months to wait. Thankfully, there’s a slew of big-budget motion pictures currently in theaters to keep you more than a little busy in the meantime.
According to Den of Geek, 22 Jump Street should hit Blu-ray and old-school DVD on November 17, 2014. That’s just in time for the annual madness known as Black Friday, so remember to add the flick to your Christmas list. Unfortunately, it’s unclear what kind of special features both releases will contain when they finally hit retail shelves.

If for some bizarre reason you’re reading this article and haven’t heard anything about the 21 Jump Street sequel, then we really need to bring you up to speed. Check out this handy synopsis, which is essentially a trailer for people who like to read.
“Schmidt and Jenko barely made it through high school the first time. Thanks to police program called 21 Jump Street, they went back a second time. The officers went undercover as high school students and made the school safe by taking down a huge drug operation. Since the program was so successful, more funding was made available and the operation moved across the street to 22 Jump Street. Schmidt and Jenko have been assigned to go to college. The guys get their own dorm, play college sports (well, kind of), and they get to party (they are college students, right?) all while investigating illegal drug activity.”
22 Jump Street was definitely a huge hit when it arrived in theaters earlier this year. The folks at Box Office Mojo claim the flick has generated a whopping $174 million in the United States alone. When foreign grosses are carefully figured into the box office equation, that number jumps to a deeply impressive $255 million.
Does this mean there’s another 21 Jump Street sequel in the works? The Inquisitr previously reported that producers haven’t ruled anything out just yet.
Producer Neal Moritz explained earlier this year:
“The way I look at it is, after this weekend’s over, if that’s what the audience wants then I’d sure love to do it, but I don’t want to jinx it. We’re proud of what we’ve done here. I’m sure we’ll discuss it next week.”
Are you planning to grab a shiny new copy of 22 Jump Street on Blu-ray or DVD when it finally hits home video this November?
