2018 revived the Halloween franchise, marking the start of a new trilogy of slasher films. With Jamie Lee Curtis returning to reprise the role of Laurie, it offered familiar scares without seeming repetitive. By summer 2019, Halloween had two sequels announced. The first, Halloween Kills, is set to release in October 2020. Assuming there are no further changes to movie scheduling after the summer, the third and final installment in the franchise, Halloween Ends, is set to hit theatres late 2021.
