Halloween Ends producer says there is “interest in exploring Season of the Witch again,” but is more focused on finishing the current trilogy.
Halloween Ends producer Ryan Freimann shows interest in revisiting the story of Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Tommy Lee Wallace’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch was released in 1982, starring Tom Atkins, Stacey Nelkin, and Dan O’Herlihy. Released the year after Halloween II hit theaters, Halloween III was Universal’s one and only attempt to turn John Carpenter’s Halloween into an anthology series. The film was panned upon its release, leading to the franchise bringing back Michael Myers in 1988’s Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.
Despite Halloween III: Season of the Witch doing poorly when it was first released, the film has since become a cult classic earning newfound appreciation from horror fans. The film isn’t part of any of the Halloween timelines. A trailer for Carpenter’s original movie is even shown in Season of the Witch, establishing that Halloween is an actual movie within this universe. Future Halloween installments ignored the events of the film, but Halloween and Halloween Kills both feature Silver Shamrock masks. The trailers for Halloween Kills show three victims slaughtered by Michael wearing the iconic skull, pumpkin, and witch masks.
