2018’s Halloween might have originally been viewed as a legacyquel, bringing back Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter to the franchise, but Halloween Kills may trump it.
Besides Curtis returning for the Kills and Halloween Ends, Kyle Richards is reprising her role as Lindsey Wallace from 1978’s Halloween, and Anthony Michael Hall will be taking over the role of Tommy Doyle. Robert Longstreet will be playing Lonnie, Tommy’s bully. Judy Greer and Andi Matichak round out the cast as the surviving Strode women.
Now Halloween Movies reports that Nancy Stephens will be returning as Nurse Marion Chambers for the upcoming sequel. Stephens is one of the few actors who returned in the later installments in the franchise. She also appeared in Halloween II, and Halloween H20: 20 Years Later.
I am all for Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green bringing back as many former Halloween actors as they want, as long as their inclusion makes sense to the story. The sequels are said to focus on how the original characters were effected by Michael’s attacks on Halloween 1978. We’ve seen how it affected Laurie Strode, and if the other characters were even half as traumatized, we could be looking at one killer set of boogie hunters.
Halloween Kills hits theaters October 16, 2020. Halloween Ends opens one year later on October 15, 2021.
