If you’ve ever wanted to check back in with the kids of Superbad to see what they’re up to, there’s some bad news by way of Seth Rogen. Rogen spoke with LADBible for a new interview promoting his HBO Max film An American Pickle and said that it is the one film that he would never make a sequel to.

Rogen, who co-wrote the 2007 coming-of-age comedy, told the site, “I think of all the movies we’ve ever made, Superbad is the one I’d 100 percent probably never touch. Honestly, I don’t think it requires improvement or anything to be built upon it. I’m unbelievably proud of it, it really holds up – people still watch it, high school kids come up to me telling me that they watched it for the first time and how they loved it. It’s worked its way into being viewed as one of the better high school movies that’s out there.”

Rogen went on to add, “I’m so terrified of subtracting from it in any way with a bad sequel or spin-off that I’d never do it. I have so few actual good accomplishments that I’m horrified to f**k with the ones I have [laughs].”

On the other hand, he has been tempted to revisit the concept of the apocalyptic comedy This Is The End, saying, “I don’t think I’d make a sequel or spin-off to This Is The End, but we like the idea of famous people stuck in supernatural situations, basically.”

Superbad starred Jonah Hill and Michael Cera as a couple of kids who want to go to a party and lose their virginity before they graduate high school, which leads to a wild night for them. It was a critical and financial success with $170.8 million worldwide on a budget of just $20 million.
