After the success of 2018’s Halloween reboot, two more films for the iconic horror franchise have been planned. The next two movies will be known as Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, set to release in 2020 and 2021 respectively and continue where the last Halloween film left off. With a title like Halloween Ends, many would expect that it would be the very last film but, much like Michael Myers himself, this franchise is not so easy to kill.
According to Indiewire, director John Carpenter exclaimed to fans at panel during Philadelphia’s Keystone Comic Con that the series would not be ending anytime soon. Carpenter expanded on the topic by saying, “As long as there’s money in this, I wouldn’t count on an ending.” This statement does seem fitting because of how many times Halloween has been rebooted, both with films liked Halloween H20 and the Rob Zombie remake. So it will only be a matter of time before Michael Myers ultimately return.
David Gordon Green, who directed the 2018 film, did previously state in an interview that Halloween Ends will be the conclusion of this story of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers that began with Halloween (2018). Green even stated himself that “this (Halloween Ends) will be my last one.” However, even though this particular revival will have an ending, the legend of Michael Myers will be eventually revived later down the line.
