The Happy Death Day franchise is on hold right now, and whether that’s temporary or permanent is very much up in the air at the moment. Christopher Landon had been planning a “bonkers” third and final installment for his franchise, tentatively titled Happy Death Day To Us, but whether or not it actually happens is entirely up to Jason Blum at this point.
So… is it happening? Speaking with Collider this week, Blum suggests that he hasn’t yet given up on the franchise. “I have a plan,” Blum teases in his new chat with Collider.
He adds, “I’m not saying goodbye to Happy Death Day. I’ll say it like that.”
What exactly does that mean? It’s hard to tell at this time, but it sounds like Tree Gelbman’s (Jessica Rothe) story isn’t quite over yet. Of course, there are various different ways to continue that storyline, including another movie, a television series, or perhaps even a comic book, so we wouldn’t necessarily take this to mean that a third installment is being developed.
That said, *something* seems to be brewing. Stay tuned…
Back in 2019, sequel Happy Death Day 2U scared up $64 million at the worldwide box office, a far cry from the first film’s $125 million. But with a reported production budget of just $9 million, that first sequel was at the very least profitable for Blumhouse. Never say never.
