Last fall, the Halloween franchise returned to the big screen with, well, Halloween! Serving as a sequel only to the 1978 original from John Carpenter, the latest Halloween movie was a critical and commercial success, leading to speculation about if Blumhouse Productions would deliver a sequel. Well, after months of chatter, it’s being reported that Halloween 2 is indeed on the way.
Word’s come in that Halloween 2 is gearing up to start shooting after Labor Day and Universal Pictures intends to release it on October 16, 2020, a date that Blumhouse has already reserved. Collider’s report also notes that Jamie Lee Curtis is “all but assured” to reprise Laurie Strode, and Judy Greer and Andi Matichak are also expected to return as Laurie’s daughter, Karen, and granddaughter, Allyson, respectively.
