‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Sequel Should Spook Audiences This Holiday Season

June 29, 2022

Sony has officially handed over the sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife a release date — very surprising. The studio pulled out all the stops to ensure the 2021 film was a stronger relaunch of the franchise than the 2016 reboot and, while it didn’t break the bank and received somewhat critical reviews mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, it’s clear that Jason Reitman’s ode to his father Ivan’s 1984 original got the job done as a sequel is on the way… next holiday season.

The following ghost hunters film – which we can call Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2, Ghostbusters 4 or, if you’re feeling particularly chaotic, ghostbusters 5 – has been given an official release date of Wednesday, December 20, 2023. It’s a big first for the series, which has never premiered on Christmas before. The 1984 movie, 1990s Ghostbusters IIand Answer the call all came out as summer blockbusters.
