Similar to last year’s release, Halloween Ends is getting a same day streaming and theatrical release this October.
Star Jamie Lee Curtis announced the news on social media.
“We discovered that there are people who want to go to the theater and scream their guts out. And other people who want to stay at home and scream their guts out. But what we know is that people watched and we got great results both from box office and from streaming,” Curtis said in the video. “This year, we want to make sure that as many people as possible can see Halloween Ends before Halloween, so we decided to give that same gift to the fans again. So starting on October 14th, you can go to the theater to see Laurie and Michael confront each other for the last time or you can watch it at home on Peacock.”
Curtis also added that over her four decades of being involved with the movies, Laurie Strode “has been relentlessly stalked by Michael Myers” and “well, all that comes to an end this Halloween, and I’m very proud of our final film, Halloween Ends, and how it brings this saga to a fitting conclusion, and I cannot wait for people to have the chance to see it.”

Halloween Ends marks the third film in the latest franchise, with the 2018 movie bringing in over $255 million on a budget of only $10 million; the sequel, Halloween Kills, released last October, brought in $131 million, but still considered a success with a budget of $20 million.
Halloween Ends is directed by David Gordon Green and also stars Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Omar Dorsey, Nick Castle, and James Jude Courtney.

Halloween Ends synopsis:
After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches its epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before. Only one of them will survive.
Icon Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the last time as Laurie Strode, horror’s first “final girl” and the role that launched Curtis’ career. Curtis has portrayed Laurie for more than four decades now, one of the longest actor-character pairings in cinema history. When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman.
Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. 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 (Rohan Campbell; The Hardy Boys, Virgin River), 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.
Halloween Ends co-stars returning cast Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace and James Jude Courtney as The Shape.
From the creative team that relaunched the franchise with 2018’s Halloween and Halloween Kills, the film is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay by Paul Brad Logan (Manglehorn), Chris Bernier (The Driver series), Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. Halloween Ends is produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Blum and Bill Block. The executive producers are John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Ryan Freimann, Ryan Turek, Andrew Golov, Thom Zadra and Christopher H. Warner.
Universal Pictures, Miramax and Blumhouse present a Malek Akkad production, in association with Rough House Pictures.
