The anticipated sequel to Five Nights at Freddy's has been confirmed for a 2025 release.

According to Deadline, Universal President of Domestic Theatrical Distribution Jim Orr announced the horror's return during the studio's CinemaCon presentation earlier this week (April 10).

The exciting news comes just four months after the release of the original film, which set multiple impressive box office records with its opening weekend earnings.

Five Nights at Freddy's scored a $78 million opening in the US, which makes it the third-biggest horror opening of all time behind the two It movies, as well as Blumhouse's biggest-ever US box office debut ahead of 2018's Halloween.

The film also made a staggering $130 million worldwide, making it Blumhouse's biggest-ever global debut and the highest-grossing horror movie debut of 2023 ahead of The Nun II.

Starring The Hungers Games actor Josh Hutcherson, the supernatural horror flick followed an unfortunate security guard who uncovered a deadly secret while on shift at an abandoned pizzeria.

The film also starred You's Elizabeth Lail, Scream's Matthew Lillard, NCIS actor Mary Stuart Masterson, and Piper Rubio.

In a recent interview with Variety, Hutcherson issued an update on the sequel, saying: "I know they're in the process right now of nailing down the story, and they want to get going as soon as possible.

"Obviously, the fans are amazing and die hard. For me to be a part of it was so cool and phenomenal. We hoped it would connect with audiences. But I don't think that anybody, even on our side of things, expected it to really connect the way that it did."

He continued: "I'm dying to get back on set. Emma Tammi, our director, was fantastic, and it was such a fun world to play in. I'm excited to see what they are doing next."

Five Nights at Freddy's is available to buy and rent on multiple digital storefronts right now.
