The horror film Five Nights at Freddy's will have a sequel. Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures confirmed at CinemaCon that the sequel is officially in the works, which will be released in autumn 2025. No plot details were provided and we don't know which actors and characters from the first film will return. Furthermore, it is not yet clear whether the sequel will have the simple title of Five Nights at Freddy's 2, or whether it will be given another title.

The film Five Nights at Freddy's is based on the popular video game series created by Scott Cawthon. Emma Tammi directed the film adaptation, while Cawthon wrote the screenplay together with the director and Seth Cuddeback. Jason Blum produced the film along with Cawthon. In the cast of the first chapter, we find Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Lail, Piper Rubio, Mary Stuart Masterson, and Matthew Lillard.

“I know they're defining the story right now and want to move forward as soon as possible,” star Josh Hutcherson, who played security guard Mike Schmidt in the first film, said in January. “Obviously, the fans are amazing and diehard. For me to be a part of it was amazing and phenomenal.”

News of a sequel is now official, and that's thanks in large part to the financial success of the first film. Five Nights at Freddy's grossed more than $297 million worldwide on a budget of $20 million, making it Blumhouse's highest-grossing film ever released. While critics haven't been particularly kind to the film, giving it a Rotten Tomatoes score of 32%, the audience score is noticeably much higher, at 87%.
