Five Nights at Freddy’s 2

Emma Tammi directed the adaptation of the popular video game series, Five Nights at Freddy’s which was released in October this year. It starred Josh Hutcherson, Piper Rubio, Elizabeth Lail and Matthew Lillard. It received mixed reviews from fans and critics, but it was a massive box office success, earning nearly $300 million worldwide. 

But will there be an Five Nights at Freddy’s 2? Or do we have to settle for this one being a one-off horror flick? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:

What is Five Nights at Freddy’s about?

The movie is about troubled security guard Mike, who is in desperate need of a job so he can maintain custody of his little sister. He takes a job working at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. During his first night on the job, he realizes that the night shift won’t be as easy as first anticipated. As time goes on, he discovers the rundown ’80s diner hides many secrets from the past, and the animatronics at the venue appear to have minds of their own.

Will there be a a sequel to Five Nights at Freddy’s?

There has been no official news on whether there will be a sequel to Five Nights at Freddy’s, but due to the huge success at the box office of the first movie, it is highly likely a sequel will be greenlit sooner rather than later. There are a number of Five Nights at Freddy’s games, so there’s plenty of subject matter to justify a sequel. 

What could Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 be about?

If the sequel does go ahead, expect the second movie to expand on the lore of the first one, with the characters from the original likely to return for another battle with the killer animatronics.

When could Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 be released?

Horror movies are usually quite quick to be produced, so it’s realistic that it could arrive in 2025 if there is an announcement on the sequel soon.

Of course, this is all speculation, and if anything changes, we’ll be sure to update you!
