Described as a more contained movie, Halloween Ends will once again be directed by David Gordon Green. Franchise lead Jamie Lee Curtis will also be returning to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode. Joining Curtis are returning stars Andi Matichak as Allyson Nelson, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, and Will Patton as Deputy Frank Hawkins.
Set in 2022, the story is expected to feature a four-year time jump after the events of the first two films. Green previously revealed that the threequel will most likely include some real-world events such as the pandemic.

In 2018, the horror franchise was rebooted by Blumhouse, with a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 film. It featured Curtis’ return as Laurie Strode after 16 years since appearing in Rick Rosenthal’s Halloween: Resurrection. The 2018 Halloween film had earned positive reviews from critics and fans, with a worldwide gross of over $250 million. Because of this, the studio immediately ordered two sequels, Halloween Kills, and Halloween Ends.
