Universal and Blumhouse’s “Five Nights at Freddy’s 2,” a horror sequel set in the haunted Chuck E. Cheese-esque establishment known as Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, will land in theaters on December 5, 2025.

Universal also added several Blumhouse titles to its release calendar, including “The Woman in the Yard” set for March 28, 2025, and “Drop” set for April 11, 2025. 

The studio also shifted the dates for two other buzzy sequels: “M3GAN 2.0” from May 16, 2025, to June 27, 2025; and “The Black Phone 2” from June 27, 2025, to October 17, 2025.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s,” adapted from the popular video game, made a killing at the box office last October with $297 million globally and became Blumhouse’s highest-grossing film of all time — all while streaming simultaneously on Peacock. 

Josh Hutcherson starred in the original as a nighttime security guard at Freddys Fazbear’s Pizza, where the animatronic mascots are prone to murder. The studio hasn’t clarified who is returning for the follow-up, but it did share the new tagline: “Anyone can survive five nights. This time, there will be no second chances.”

“M3GAN,” short for Model 3 Generative Android, was another Blumhouse sleeper hit with $180 million globally in 2022. 

Plot details haven’t been revealed for the sequel, though Allison Williams, whose character helped bring to life the campy, chaotic AI-like doll, will be back for “2.0,” as will M3GAN’s pint-sized bestie, played by Violet McGraw. It’s unclear why the film was delayed.

“The Black Phone 2” will bring back Ethan Hawke, Mason Thames, Madeleine McGraw, Jeremy Davies, and Miguel Mora. 

The sequel to the 2022 movie — which earned more than $160 million worldwide — will be directed by Scott Derrickson, who co-wrote the script with C. Robert Cargill. 

Universal and Blumhouse didn’t share a synopsis (sense a theme here?), but the first film followed Hawke as a masked serial killer who kidnaps and torments a teenage boy.

It may sound like Blumhouse is all sequels all the time, but the horror empire has two original thrillers on deck for 2025. 

“The Woman in the Yard” stars Danielle Deadwyler, Russell Horsby, Okwui Okpokwasili, Peyton Jackson, and Estella Kahiha. 

“Black Adam” filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra is directing and Sam Stefanak wrote the screenplay but — say it with us — the movie’s logline hasn’t been disclosed.

“Drop,” described as a “blood-chilling, “fast-paced thriller,” hails from producers Michael Bay and Blumhouse founder Jason Blum. 

Christopher Landon (“Freaky”) is directing the pic, which features Meghann Fahy, Brandon Sklenar, Violett Beane Jacob Robinson, and Ed Weeks.
