Lionsgate made a surprise announcement of “Saw XI” on Tuesday, along with plans for the 11th entry in the long-running horror franchise to hit theaters just nine months from now.

The project was confirmed through an Instagram post, which feature Roman numerals against a spooky “Saw” backdrop spelling out a Sept. 27, 2024 release date. It was shared alongside a simple caption: “The game continues.”

Setting a date for next fall is a pretty astounding feat, as the last franchise entry “Saw X” hit theaters just over two months ago on September 29. That represents a quick turnaround — less than one year — for the franchise. 

“Saw X” put up a strong performance at the box office, grossing $53 million in North America and $107 million globally against a $13 million production budget.

Lionsgate did not announce any details regarding who is involved with “Saw XI”.

The tenth “Saw” featured franchise star Tobin Bell returning to the role of John Kramer, the serial torture-contraption crafter and arguable self-improvement guru Jigsaw. 

The 81-year-old actor, who first appeared in the original “Saw” in 2004, took on a lead role for the latest entry, which took place between the first and second installments of the series and explored Kramer’s adventures below the border seeking treatment for a brain tumor — and striking back against a group of medical con artists. 

Shawnee Smith also returned as Jigsaw’s apprentice Amanda Young. Kevin Greutert, who began with “Saw” as an editor before helming the sixth and seventh entries, directed the feature from a screenplay by Peter Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg. 

"Saw X" opened to $18 million domestically, which rebounded the franchise greatly. That was up +106% over Spiral‘s $8.75M. The entry opening was just under that of the original movie back in 2004, which was $18.2M.
