Michael Myers is back – again – this Halloween season in the first trailer for Halloween Ends. Universal has released the first look at director David Gordon Green’s third (and reportedly final) entry in the horror series.
The first trailer came out surprisingly Tuesday night, with franchise star Jamie Lee Curtis announcing the release just minutes before it appeared online.
“Laurie always says… DO WHAT I SAY!” Curtis wrote on Twitter.

Halloween Ends is the 13th installment in the Halloween slasher franchise and fourth in the chronology established by 2018’s Halloween, which ignored every other film in the series except for John Carpenter’s 1978 original.
In the trilogy, Jamie Lee Curtis reprized her role as Laurie Strode, a survivor of the original Michael Myers shooting spree (played by Nick Castle and stuntman James Jude Courtney) who is now a recluse struggling with PTSD. In the 2018 film and the 2021 sequel Halloween Kills, Laurie is teaming up with her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) when Myers reappears to attack Haddonfield, Illinois.
Halloween Ends follows the cliffhanger ending of Halloween Kills. Curtis and Matichak will reprise their roles from the last two films. Will Patton, Kyle Richards and Omar Dorsey also reprise their roles from previous films, while Michael O’Leary joins the cast as a new addition.
Green is returning from the last two films to direct Halloween Ends. He also wrote the screenplay with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier. The film is being produced by Jason Blum through his Blumhouse Productions banner along with Rough House Productions, Miramax and Trancas International Pictures. Other producers are Bill Block and Malek Akkad. Universal Pictures will distribute the film.
Halloween Ends hits theaters on October 14th. Check out the full trailer below.
