Two More ‘Halloween’ Movies Coming In 2020 And 2021, Universal & Blumhouse Say

Past year saw the Halloween franchise return to the big screen in a big way with Jamie Lee Curtis back in the lead role as Laurie Strode, leading a massive critical and commercial success.

There were rumors swirling about that not one, but two Halloween sequels were in our future, but we weren't sure if this was a trick...or a treat.

Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends is officially happening.

The announcement from Universal Pictures didn't offer anything in the way of plot details, but the very existence of sequels means that there is more to this story and the video confirms as much, saying that "The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode isn't over".

Universal Pictures made the announcement Friday, it will be Halloween Kills out October 2020 and Halloween Ends opening the same month a year later. Now, Jamie Lee Curtis is back to finish off her role as Laurie Strode for what will more than likely be the final time.

Michael Myers and Laurie Strode are returning to the big screen two more times in the next two years, to battle to the death. Now we know that not only will he return to helm the picture, but that the bulk of the production team is coming along for the ride, including producer Jason Blum, writer Danny McBride, and creator/composer John Carpenter.

Halloween Kills will be written by David Gordon Green & Danny McBride & Scott Teems, based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. Last year's return to Haddonfield sliced off a favorable response from critics (and raves from actual fans), and raked in $255 million worldwide against a reported production budget of only $10 million. Ryan Turek is overseeing the project for Blumhouse. Halloween 2018 set up a lot of interesting stuff, so let's get the followthrough.
