A sequel, ''Another 48 Hrs.'' was released in 1990 and is the direct sequel to the 1982 film. The film was a huge success much like its predecessor, but received negative reception from critics. It remains the only sequel to date Creator/WalterHill has ever directed.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Fans of Eddie Murphy's later work will probably be shocked at how violent and grim this film is, with Murphy himself being the only real source of any humor. In fact the studio had wanted a relatively light comedy film, but director Walter Hill took it in a much darker direction. The film was a big hit anyway, but it led to the studio bringing ''Film/BeverlyHillsCop'' out of DevelopmentHell with Murphy as the lead, in order to deliver the film they had originally wanted.
