Horror hit Five Nights At Freddy’s is getting its sequel towards the end of 2025: more on the story here.

The critical response to the Five Nights At Freddy’s film that arrived last year? Well, it was pretty much on the piss poor side. The awards cabinet for it? Pretty much empty. The audience response? Better. The box office? Very nice, thank you very much.

With that in mind, it was confirmed pretty quickly that we were going to be getting a Five Nights At Freddy’s 2 movie, and as it turns out, we’re going to be getting it really rather quickly too.

It’s been confirmed overnight that Universal has given the movie an autumn 2025 release slot. We’ve not got a specific release date at the moment, but it seems all but certain that Universal is going to pick a day in October of 2025 to unleash the movie. Considering just how long it took to wrestle the first film to the screen (it was infamously in development for many years before it finally got going), that’s a much faster turnaround time.

Personnel-wise, outside of producer Jason Blum, it’s not yet clear who’s going to be involved in the new film. Things have got to come together relatively quickly though, as filming has been earmarked for this July.

Emma Tammi directed the first film, although we don’t yet know if she’s coming back for the next chapter. It’s a fair bet we’re getting some of the cast back though, and given that the plan was originally for at least three films, it’s hard not to think that some of them had sequel options built into their original deals.

Oh, one confirmed returnee: Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, which has been rehired to do the animatronic puppets that we’ll be seeing on screen.

More on Five Nights At Freddy’s 2 as we hear it. Expect casting confirmation over the next month or two.
