Is there a Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 post-credits scene? With the movie now available to watch in cinemas, here’s what you need to know about what happens once the credits start rolling.

Mission: Impossible 7 – subtitled Dead Reckoning Part 1 – is in theaters worldwide now, with the official synopsis as follows:

“In Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team embark on their most dangerous mission yet: To track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, and dark forces from Ethan’s past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission – not even the lives of those he cares about most.”

We’re going to discuss whether the movie has a post-credits scene now, so MINOR SPOILERS ahead…

Does Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 have a post-credits scene?

No, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 does not have a post-credits scene. There’s no mid-credits scene either.

That’s in-keeping with the previous Mission: Impossible movies, none of which had a post-credits scene to set plot up or tease a sequel.

Dead Reckoning doesn’t need to do the latter, as it’s the first installment of a two-part story. The movie ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger, which we explain here. While Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 2 is set to hit screens next summer, on June 28, 2024.
