This summer, horror fans were thrilled to receive official confirmation that that Halloween franchise reboot was not over. After announcing back-to-back sequels titled Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends for 2020 and 2021, we now have our first look at Laurie Strode.
What could be in store for the Jamie Lee Curtis character? Whatever it is, it looks rough.
The sequels were previously teased by producer Jason Blum and Jamie Lee Curtis, with official confirmation revealed back in July.
With filming for Halloween Kills currently underway, Curtis took to Twitter to share a teaser photo of her character.
Looking a little rough, Curtis posted the photo with the caption, “NEVER SAY DIE! First day back in the battle for my life!”

We have a lot of questions, but we feel like it’s still way too early for us to get any answers.
The revival of Halloween dropped last October. It was rated favorably by both critics and moviegoers. The film grossed $254.3 million worldwide. Its opening weekend saw the movie earning an estimated $77.5 million, placing it second to IT as the biggest opening for a horror movie ever.
Halloween Kills will drop October 16, 2020 and Halloween Ends on October 15, 2021.

Previously, writer Danny McBride opened up about whether or not Halloween Ends will really be the end.
“I think, ultimately, Michael Myers is such an iconic character that no one besides Carpenter is ever gonna have ownership over him. This will be our chance at the table to play with these characters, and I’m sure that, when we’re done, other people will come in and do the same thing, or have their own reinvention,” he said. “Michael Myers is iconic enough to allow that, too. He’s like James Bond, where you can have different actors and different filmmakers. He represents something so simple and scary that he can be translated by lots of different people.”
