Dog Days is the first film in the series not to be released in March.


In August 2012, while doing press for Dog Days, Jeff Kinney, Zachary Gordon and Robert Capron each indicated that there were no plans for a fourth film, but didn't dismiss the possibility entirely.[4][5][6] Kinney replied to inquiries regarding the possibility of another sequel, stating, "At present, we don’t have a fourth film in development, but you never know!"[6] And when describing the likelihood of starring in another film in the series, Gordon explained, "[Dog Days] most likely will be the last movie. The main problem is [the cast] is getting older. You can't stop it. There's no way to temporarily stop us from changing and growing up. You know, that's the problem because the characters are supposed to be timeless."[4]

Jeff Kinney has indicated that instead of doing a live-action film of the sixth novel Cabin Fever, he would like to see it adapted into an animated film, stating in an interview, "I hope that it gets made into an animated movie. I'd really like to see it turn into an animated television special", but as of December 2015 there have been no plans for a fourth movie or an animated special.[7]
