One and the only prominent question that has been running around all over the internet searches. It is “will Johnny Depp be in the Pirates of the Caribbean 6?” 

After releasing five successful movies from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, the world is unsure whether Johnny Depp will reappear for the Pirates of the Caribbean 6. To begin with, in 2017, Jerry Bruckheimer revealed the fact that he is unsure of Johnny’s involvement in the sixth movie. Well! It seems like the production has sensed the problems in Johnny Depp’s life as soon as the fifth part of Pirates of the Caribbean released. 

For the most part, the recent public reports state that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard separated in 2016. Now, Amber has filed a case of domestic violence against Johnny. However, this story gets messed up when Johnny Depp recently filed a defamation case against his ex-wife Amber. Although, that’s a lot on Johnny’s plate. But, it consequently leading to dropping off one of the most prominent film series in career is definitely heartbreaking for the fans of jack sparrow.

Here’s a fun fact, after such a saddening declaration in 2017, there are still chances that Johnny Depp will be reconsidered for the Pirates of the Caribbean 6. 

Further in this reading, let’s renew our memory of amazing pirates of the Caribbean last five movies. Also, Pirates of the Caribbean 6 release date, plot, and spoiler alerts. 

When is “Pirates of the Caribbean 6” coming out?

To begin with, recently in 2019, Kaya Rose Scodelario-Davis revealed the fact in the media that she has signed up for a return in the Pirates of the Caribbean 6th part. However, later in May 2020, for some reason, Kaya Rose Scodelario-Davis got replaced by Karen Sheila Gillan. For those who do not know, Karen is prominently known for her role in Doctor Who (2010-2013). 

To summarize, the Pirates of the Caribbean 6’s production has been encountering many challenges. From cast replacement to personal reveals of the lives of former stars in the movie, every challenge comes down to delay the release of the 6th part. 

For the obvious reasons, Disney is not releasing Pirates of the Caribbean 6 in 2020. Coronavirus Pandemic has put a question mark on the release of many web series. So, it also impacts the forthcoming movies. Apart from this, there are also well-known facts behind the delay. For example, currently, Disney has launched a new streaming platform called “Disney+.” For this platform, Disney is also side-by-side focusing on new series such as Bill and Ted 3

But, without any further ado, it is our honor to inform you that Pirates of the Caribbean 6’s new release date has been set for the fall of 2021. Thus, stay tuned till then. 

List of Pirates of Caribbean movies:

Up until now, Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films have released five parts of Pirates of the Caribbean film series. This list includes the following:

  • The Curse of the Black Pearl
  • Dead Man’s Chest
  • At World’s End
  • On Stranger Tides
  • Dead Men Tell No Tales
  • Tales of the Code: Wedlocked (short film)

What is POTC: Dead Men Tell No Tales plot summary?

Pirates of the Caribbean also well-known as Salazar’s revenge is a very famous movie. It broke the box office record by its collection of approximately 80 crores USD on its release. To begin with, the film revolves around Spanish Royal Navy soldiers (ghost/undead soldiers) who are the old enemies of Jack Sparrow. Captain Armando Salazar leads this army of soldiers towards their mission to kill every pirate at the sea. 

Further in the movie, in order to protect himself and other pirates, he goes on a mission to find Trident of Poseidon. He is an artifact who has the power to break the curse on Pirates.

This adventure-followed movie has also somehow led to disappointment for Disney. The reason being is that it had nominated for various award categories. But, it didn’t make it through!


Well! Fan-base may not like the Pirates of the Caribbean 6 in the absence of Johnny Depp and Kaya Rose Scodelario-Davis. But, let’s keep our expectations high as Disney may find a better actor to replace Johnny Depp.
