While there was an initial belief that Halloween Kills & Halloween Ends would be filmed back to back, that didn’t happen and star Andi Matichak explained why. Matichak, who plays Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson Nelson in the new films, spoke with THR about the film and confirmed there was some discussion of shooting the two sequels in quick succession.

“Yeah, that was something that was toyed with; they thought about doing them back to back,” Matichak said. “But Halloween Kills was just so ambitious. It was such an intense shooting schedule that it would have been a bit much to try to do them at the same time. So we didn’t. We just have Halloween Kills in the can, and if Allyson is lucky enough to make it out of Halloween Kills, then I think that the third one will be filmed in the foreseeable future.”

The film completed production in late 2019 but has been delayed by the pandemic. It is currently set to release on October 15th, with Halloween Ends set to bow on October 14th, 2022.
