Universal Home Entertainment has announced a street date for the (alleged) final Halloween movie, at least within the original continuity: Halloween Ends.

Halloween Ends is the 3rd and Final film in the current reboot trilogy. It is the 12th film in the franchise, but this timeline only begins with the first film, Halloween (1978), but retconned the other movies that follow and start over again with Halloween (2018). Michael and Laurie killed each other for different timelines, and this is the finale of their showdown.Both of them also became playable characters at the horror multiplayer game Dead By Daylight. Michael is one of the most played killer characters in that game.
Whether we’ll beat down the COVID-19 virus by this time next year is anybody’s guess, but there’s one deadly enemy we’ll apparently always have around: Michael Myers. He was ready to start his slashing spree anew this Halloween, but the state of theaters in this country right now delayed that visit by an entire year, so…he and his machete have gotta wait. (He’ll be fine…he’s got a mask on.)
Is it too early to start thinking about Halloween….2021? That may be the time kids can actually start safely trick-or-treating again, but it will also be the month Universal releases Halloween Kills, the second movie of the planned “Laurie Strode as a senior citizen badass” trilogy.
The Halloween franchise has been through more sequels, reboots and retools than any other slasher series, but with 2018’s simply-titled Halloween, everything was ignored save for the first movie. In this version, Laurie Strode never encountered Michael Myers again (and they weren’t related either) but the trauma of the event drove her to bulk up and train, preparing for the day when he might one day escape prison and come for her again. They did meet once more, Laurie defeated him, and thus ended the Halloween story forever.
Halloween is coming back — the store shelves are filling up with candy, the empty store lots are draped with “Spirit Halloween” banners over their label scars, and Michael Myers is stomping around once more, looking for the one person he can’t kill, even though he killed her already several times.
Michael Myers is coming back! A new Halloween movie is due this October, and USA Today published some exclusive screenshots today.
Soon Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning to the role that made her famous, Laurie Strode in 1978’s Halloween. According to a press release put out today by Blumhouse, Laurie will return to “come to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
