Will There Be Any Sequel To Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark?


Entertainment One and Paramount announced the second part of the movie in late 2020, but there’s been no update since then. But another thing to know is that the sequel is happening and it’s confirmed.

What Is The Release Date Of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark 2?

There’s no information from the studios about the release of the planned sequel. This makes sense, given the current state of the production generally. We can still make certain inferences about when we’ll be able to watch the movie’s sequel.

The first part was released on August 9 in the United States. It was a hit after the release, so nothing is surprising if the studios will release it in the same time frame for its success as the first one. Another option is to shift a bit in October at the time of Halloween.

As there are not many updates on the movie, we can’t say when another part will be released. If we guess it, there are chances of its release in mid-2022.

Is There Any Trailer For Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark 2?

For now, there’s no trailer for the second sequel of the movie, but you can enjoy the trailer of the first one if you have not watched it yet.

What do we know so far about the storyline of the second sequel?

The short horror story illustrated by Stephen Gammell and written by Alvin Schwartz is perfect for watching for the young fans too, who love scary movies but are too young for proper horror adult movies.

The first part has utilized the original stories of The Big Toe, Harold, and The Dream from the book and changed them into a single story where three friends, Auggie, Stella, and Chuck, start exploring a local haunted house in Mill Valley, a small town on Halloween 1968. All three of them, along with a young drifter, Ramon Morales look for the book of horror stories that Sarah Bellows wrote. As they get a lot deeper into its history, they get scared and horrified by the spooky tales.

Generally, when any sequel is announced, the cast and studio offer a little teaser so that the viewers get to know the plot. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case with Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. If reports are to be believed, there was a purpose for not releasing the movie’s logline when it was announced. We are not sure if it’s a sign that the story will entirely be different from the first one or they have come up so far in the creative process. However, we can make some speculations about the story.

At the end of the first movie, Stella frees Sarah from the spirit by noting down the true story that happened to her, leading the monsters from the stories to disappear. Chuck and Auggie are still nowhere to be found. However, when the movie ends, Ruth starts looking for a way to find and rescue them.

As Sarah’s story got tied up pretty nicely, there are chances of her getting involved in another sequel, but the question is, where? The things that remain are the monsters that she conjured with her stories came from, and where Chuck and Auggie went missing.

If we guess, the most obvious plot of the second sequel can be Stella and the company’s looking for their two missing friends. Hope we get more information on this.

Although almost all the movies give a little teaser for what viewers can expect, there’s no information on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 2, but this is for sure that Stella and Company will search for their missing friends in the second part.

What Do We Know About The Cast Of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark 2?

If we talk about the cast and crew of the sequel, we are expecting the return of the same cast as in the first part. It includes Zoe Colletti (Stella), Gabriel Rush (Auggie), Michael Garza (Ramon), Natalie Ganzhorn (Ruthie), Austin Zajur (Chuck), and Austin Abrams (Tommy), among others.

How Was The Reception Of The First Part?


The single narrative approach seems great, as the first part of the movie became a hit and smashed the box office in 2019. Both the critics and the audience loved the movie. The same response is expected from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark sequel whenever it happens.

Where To Watch The Second Part Of The Movie?

The movie was released in theatres in the US in August 2019, and it can now be streamed on Netflix as well. So, if you haven’t watched it yet, enjoy the first part till the second one comes.
