A “Creative Reset” Based On the Original Halloween Movie Will be Featured On Television

Marc Helwig of Miramax gave a status report on the next Halloween series, according to Deadline. Helwig disclosed that the series will tie into the events of the 1978 film rather than expanding upon 2022’s Halloween Ends.

The core of it is the original John Carpenter film, its characters, and maybe a cast of people that we haven’t given as much attention to in several or even recent cinematic adaptations, according to Helwig. “It’s a creative reset completely and going back to the original film, as opposed to spinning out of any of the more recent film adaptations.”

Helwig stated that the Halloween series is “on a fast track,” despite the lack of a writer at this time. It’s a top priority for us,” he continued. “ It’s a big priority for us. We’ve had lots of exciting conversations in recent months with a number of really talented people, and I think we’ll have a pretty good idea of what we’re going to be doing very soon. We’re hoping to lock down the creative team very soon.”

In October 2023, Miramax acquired the television rights to the Halloween franchise. Although the firm is optimistic that the series might be the start of a new cinematic universe that grows into films, plot details are currently being kept under wraps.

There have been multiple reboots of the Halloween series.

There have been thirteen movies in the Halloween franchise to date. Halloween II by Carpenter, Halloween III: Season of the Witch in 1982, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers in 1988, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers in 1989, and Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers in 1995 came after Carpenter’s Halloween.

The 1998 film Halloween H20: 20 Years Later completely rewrote everything that had happened after Halloween II. Halloween: Resurrection from 2002 came next, and then Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II from 2009 saw the brand revived.

Afterwards, David Gordon Green retconned everything after Carptner’s original film for his new Halloween trilogy, which is titled Halloween (2018), Halloween Kills (2021), and Halloween Ends (2022).
