In a recent interview with Ladbible, Seth Rogen talked about a possible remake or second instalment of Superbad. He said that out of all the movies they have ever made, Superbad is the one he would “100 % probably” never touch. The actor does not think that the film requires improvement or anything to be built upon it. He stated that he is “unbelievablly proud of it” as it is still fresh. Seth mentioned that people still watch it and that high school kids come up to him telling him that they watched it for the first time and how much they loved it. He noted that Superbad has worked its way into being viewed as “one of the better high school movies” that are out there.

Seth Rogen revealed that he is afraid that a second go on the film could possibly ruin its legacy. He added that he is “so terrified" of subtracting from Superbad in any way with a bad sequel or spin-off that he would never do it. He mentioned that he has “so few actual good accomplishments” that he is “horrified” to mess with the ones he has and laughs it off.
