Blumhouse boss teases Happy Death Day 3 may be coming

January 16th, 2022 by Marc Comments

The Happy Death Day series is a unique one among Blumhouse’s horror oeuvre as it offers a forest twist on an old idea.

Starring Jessica Rothe as Tree, a college student who wakes up in a time loop on the day she’s murdered by a killer in a grotesque baby mask – it’s the school mascot – think Scream meets Groundhog Day, Tree has to solve her own murder or she’s doomed to repeat her own death for eternity. The sequel has Tree delving into why there’s a time loop and it gets even weirder.

While the sequel promised a trilogy closer, it never happened and seemed to be unlikely to ever appear… but now it looks like it may finally see the light of day.

In a new Twitter AMA, Blumhouse boss Jason Blum (here) was asked about the third movie and he gave a rather hopeful answer, saying: “Something is stirring.”

Now, obviously, it’s not giving away a lot of detailed information for sure, but it certainly sounds like it’s on the cards.

And this is good news as the franchise was one that actually took me by surprise and was a lot more fun than I has expected, so I’ll be burning the homefires in anticipation of this third chapter in this mental but fun series.

What about you all? any fans in the house? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
