If Michael Myers is truly about to meet his end, we’ll have two ways to see it happen. Just as Universal did with Halloween Kills during the pandemic, they’ve decided to release the trilogy’s finale, Halloween Ends, both in theaters and Peacock streaming on October 14th.
Jamie Lee Curtis made the announcement herself on Instagram, along with revealing the brand new poster.

Halloween Ends picks up four years after the events of Halloween Kills, and poor Laurie Strode has to once again try and finish off Michael Myers…this time for good. Also in the cast are Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, and James Jude Courtney as Myers aka The Shape.
Here is the official synopsis: This is Laurie Strode’s last stand.
After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches its epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before. Only one of them will survive.
Icon Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the last time as Laurie Strode, horror’s first “final girl” and the role that launched Curtis’ career. Curtis has portrayed Laurie for more than four decades now, one of the longest actor-character pairings in cinema history. When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman.
Four years after the events of last year’s 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, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; The Hardy Boys, Virgin River), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.
