After a successful box office return in 2018, Halloween producer and creator John Carpenter has confirmed back-to-back sequels for the slasher cult classic — Halloween Kills due on October 16, 2020 and Halloween Ends on October 15, 2021.
Carpenter took to Twitter to announce the news but only left fans with a half-minute teaser, writing, “The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode isn’t over.” Plot details are still under wraps, a press release affirmed the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Strode, Judy Greer as daughter Karen Nelson and Andi Matichak as granddaughter Allyson Nelson. Nick Castle’s reprisal of his role as Michael Myers is yet to be confirmed.
The original Halloween premiered in 1978 with both Curtis and Castle taking on the lead roles, and the direct 2018 sequel follows Strode and Myers’ final face-off 40 years later. Seeing as Strode — spoiler alert — allegedly “killed” Myers in the latest film, it’s unclear if she was actually unsuccessful or if someone else will continue with the deeds of the masked serial killer.
In other entertainment news, Avengers: Endgame has officially surpassed Avatar as the highest-grossing film of all time.
