Fans will get even more chances to “scream their guts out” with the latest installment of the Halloween franchise, joining Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in a final encounter with Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney), giving this saga “a fitting conclusion.”
Jamie Lee Curtis recently appeared on a video sharing her experience playing Laurie Strode for over four decades, being relentlessly stalked by Michael Myers, and commenting on her excitement to share the epic conclusion to this saga with life-long fans of the franchise.
The video was posted via Twitter by #HalloweenEnds (@halloweenmovie). In it, Curtis adds that during the release of the previous installment of the franchise, Halloween Kills (2021), the world was in the thick of the COVID crisis, causing the studio to release the film in theaters and homes at the same time. This decision made the studio realize that there were “people who wanna go to the theater and scream their guts out and people who wanna stay at home and scream their guts out,” causing great results both at the box office and from streaming.
Curtis mentions that, with hopes that as many people as possible can see Halloween Ends (2022) before Halloween, the film will be released in theaters and on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, on October 14. “We decided to give that same gift to the fans again,” said Curtis.
This will allow fans to watch the movie in theaters or at home. “Or really, you could do what I would do, which is go to the theater, and then rewatch it at home, and then go back to the theater, and then rewatch it at home again,” said Jamie Lee Curtis, adding, “no spoilers, but I have a feeling that’s what you might wanna do.”
“I thank you for your years of support and how much you care about this story and me, your final girl,” said Curtis during the emotional ending of the video, adding, “I’ll see you soon, stay safe and happy Halloween, everyone,” before walking off the frame.

The official synopsis for Halloween Ends reads:
Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since his last brutal rampage. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham, is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.
