The 2018 reboot of Halloween will be the first in a trilogy of sequels to the 1978 original.

John Carpenter, director of the original Halloween, who composed the music for the 2018 version with his son Cody, made the announcement on Twitter. “The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode isn’t over,” he wrote.

Nothing has yet been revealed about the new entries in the saga, save for release dates and titles. The first Halloween sequel, Halloween Kills will be released on October 16, 2020, which will be followed by Halloween Ends on October 15, 2021.

An accompanying video focuses heavily on the end of the 2018 Halloween, during which Michael Myers was trapped in the basement of Laurie Strode’s forest fortress and burnt alive. We saw the flames wrap around Michael, seemingly consuming the unstoppable killer. It now appears Michael Myers survived, somehow, but a real answer will have to wait for Halloween Kills in 2020.

“I’m just warming up,” Jamie Lee Curtis wrote on Twitter, confirming her return for the sequels. “Happy Halloween 2020/2021.”
