The cast has been set for Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema's sixth installment of the Final Destination franchise, "Final Destination: Bloodlines". 

Brec Bassinger, Teo Briones, Kaitlyn Santa Juana, Richard Harmon, Anna Lore, Owen Patrick Joyner, Max Lloyd-Jones, Rya Kihlstedt, and Tinpo Lee round out the cast.

The sixth installment was first announced in 2019 and was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, HBO Max (now simply Max) has ultimately decided to revive the franchise.

The pic is now in production in Vancouver and hails from "Freaks" filmmakers, Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein, with Jon Watts serving as the upcoming film's writer and producer. 

Craig Perry produces alongside Jon Watts, Sheila Hanahan Taylor, and Dianne McGunigle for New Line.

The first Final Destination, which starred Devon Sawa and Ali Larter, debuted in 2000 and followed a group of teenagers entangled in a frightening game of fate and death. 

It made $112 million worldwide on a $23 million budget. Four more installments followed through 2011, earning almost $700 million globally to date. The new entry will be the first installment since then.

Despite not all movies performing well at both the box office and critical receptions, with some not aging well – the franchise as a whole can be considered a horror classic in itself, thanks to the franchise's gory concept, with a villain without face but certainly terrifying.

Though the plot details for the movie remain unknown, Jeffrey Reddick—the original Final Destination creator and writer—previously revealed that the sixth entry won't follow the movie's usual formula, but will stay faithful to the franchise's entire premise.

Final Destination explores the themes of death and fate approaching in plain sight, utilizes everyone's fear of inevitable death, and showcases the idea of it chasing someone in the most gruesome way possible.

The franchise has somewhat created a collective fear in its viewers, with paranoia-inducing scenes like suddenly getting hit by a bus, roller coaster collapse, elevator decapitation, eye surgery gone wrong, a tanning bed accident, and a lot more. Delivering the same fright and premise in the five movies.

"Final Destination: Bloodlines" will be released in 2025, timed to the 25th anniversary of the original.
