Freddy Fazbear will return to haunt multiplexes in 2025.

Universal and Blumhouse’s “Five Nights at Freddy’s 2,” a horror sequel set in the haunted Chuck E. Cheese-esque establishment known as Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, will land in theaters on Dec. 5, 2025.

Universal added several Blumhouse titles to its release calendar, including “The Woman in the Yard” (set for March 28, 2025) and “Drop” (set for April 11, 2025). The studio also shifted the dates for two other buzzy sequels: “M3GAN 2.0” from May 16, 2025 to June 27, 2025; and “The Black Phone 2” from June 27, 2025 to Oct. 17, 2025.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s,” adapted from the popular video game, made a killing at the box office last October with $297 million globally and became Blumhouse’s highest-grossing film of all time — all while streaming simultaneously on Peacock. Josh Hutcherson starred in the original as a nighttime security guard at Freddys Fazbear’s Pizza, where the animatronic mascots are prone to murder. The studio hasn’t clarified who is returning for the follow-up, but it did share the new tagline: “Anyone can survive five nights. This time, there will be no second chances.”

“M3GAN,” short for Model 3 Generative Android, was another Blumhouse sleeper hit with $180 million globally in 2022. Plot details haven’t been revealed for the sequel, though Allison Williams, whose character helped bring to life the campy, chaotic AI-like doll, will be back for “2.0” as will M3GAN’s pint-sized bestie, played by Violet McGraw. It’s unclear why the film was delayed.

“The Black Phone 2” will bring back Ethan Hawke, Mason Thames, Madeleine McGraw, Jeremy Davies and Miguel Mora. The sequel to the 2022 film — which earned more than $160 million worldwide — will be directed by Scott Derrickson, who co-wrote the script with C. Robert Cargill.
