‘Halloween Ends’ to Debut Simultaneously in Theaters and on Peacock

Laurie Strode’s final battle against her seemingly immortal nemesis Michael Myers will transpire in theaters… and on a streaming service near you.

Universal Pictures has announced “Halloween Ends,” the next sequel in the long-running slasher series, will land on Peacock on the same day it arrives on the big screen. The movie is scheduled to premiere on Oct. 14, 2022.

Directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Blumhouse and Miramax, “Halloween Ends” is the conclusion to the decades-long film franchise. “Only one of them will survive,” according to the movie’s logline, which also hints at “a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before.”

“Halloween” launched in 1978 and spawned several sequels. The story about the perpetually targeted teen babysitter was revived in 2018 with “Halloween,” becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing entry with $255 million globally. The sequel “Halloween Kills,” which also landed day-and-date on Peacock in 2021, debuted to $49 million and eventually racked up $92 million domestically and $131 million globally. The company never divulged Peacock metrics. However, Universal’s corporate overlords were presumably happy with the results since it’s replicating the hybrid release model for “Halloween Ends.”

Here’s the logline for “Halloween Ends”: Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; The Hardy Boys, Virgin River), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.
