It’s the endgame for one of horror’s most prolific serial killers, Michael Myers, in Halloween Ends.
On Tuesday, Peacock released a video via its social channels to announce Halloween Ends will come to theaters and streaming on Oct. 14. In the clip, Jamie Lee Curtis says, “I’ve played Laurie Strode for over four decades, and she has been relentlessly stalked by Michael Myers. All of that comes to an end this Halloween, and I’m very proud of our film.”

Curtis explains that the decision to release Halloween Ends in theaters and on streaming is to give audiences a choice due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Peacock executed a similar strategy when it released Halloween Kills in 2021, which grossed $92 million in domestic box office sales and $131.6 million worldwide. According to Samba TV, 1.2 million U.S. households watched Halloween Kills during its first weekend.
Halloween Ends takes place four years after the events of 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 has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to confront the evil once and for all.
Halloween Ends is directed by David Gordon Green. Green worked on the screenplay with Paul Brad Logan, Chris Bernier and Danny McBride.
