What you need to know

  • Universal Pictures has announced two more Halloween movies.
  • The films are being made by the same team of the 2018 reboot.
  • Halloween Kills will be released on October 16, 2020, while Halloween Ends will hit theaters on October 15, 2021.

Michael Myers will be back to terrorize audiences in not one, but two films, beginning with Halloween Kills on October 16, 2020. A year later, the trilogy will conclude with Halloween Ends on October 15, 2021.

The Halloween franchise was rebooted last year and brought back Jamie Lee Curtis to once again star as Laurie Strode. As the teaser trailer suggests, she'll be tormented by Michael Myers, or at least by someone donning his infamous mask.

The two upcoming Halloween movies will be written and directed by the same team who created the reboot, and fill slots in previously announced Untitled Blumhouse Productions Projects. That bodes well for the two new entries, considering 2018's Halloween became the highest-grossing installment in the franchise with over $250 million at the global box office.

The teaser is frightening in and of itself, preparing audiences for two more nightmares. Not much else is known about Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, but you can bet the body count will be high as Strode attempts to destroy Michael Myers once and for all.
