In the first film from the Final Destination horror series, released in the year 2000, a group of high school students barely avoids death while flying to Paris due to a foreboding vision had by one of them. Death is not happy about this and has started collecting from his victims.
They travel there, one of them gets a vision, they all manage to avoid dying, and then they all begin to die in gruesome, Rube Goldberg-style ways. This formula generated over $650 million at the movie office and four sequels. Here’s all we know about the upcoming Final Destination 6, from when it’ll be released to who’ll be in it to what the narrative will be like.
Final Destination 6 Release Date
Although there is currently no official release date for Final Destination, we anticipate it will be released sometime in early 2025. The Final Destination films do not follow the standard practice of releasing them around Halloween. In reality, the majority of the prior episodes debuted in the spring or summer. Final Destination 6, dubbed Bloodlines, has just the continuing actor strike to contend with at this point.
In 2019, the production of a new film was announced, however, it was suspended after the pandemic. The good news is that a rough script already exists! The original start date for production was July 2023, however, strikes in the industry have delayed everything indefinitely.
Creator Jeffrey Reddick has recently said that production may resume as soon as the SAG-AFTRA strike concludes. We may assume shooting will occur in 2024, with a possible early 2025 theatrical release if this one follows the 2023 Writers Strike’s path and concludes discussions before year’s end.
About Final Destination
There have been five movies, two comic books, and nine novels based on the American horror series Final Destination. It was released by New Line Cinema and is based on an unproduced spec story by Jeffrey Reddick for the television series The X-Files. Each of the five films follows a small group of individuals as one of them (the protagonist) has an unexpected premonition and warns the others of an oncoming big calamity.
The survivors, having avoided their prophesied deaths, die one by one in weird accidents triggered by an invisible power, resulting in complex chains of cause and effect akin to Rube Goldberg machines, and then they must interpret omens delivered by yet another unseen entity in order to once again evade their deaths.
The series stands out from others in the horror genre because of its enemy, Death Itself, who is not a traditional slasher or other physical monster, but rather manipulates the environment quietly in order to claim anybody who has managed to evade their inevitable destiny.
Final Destination 6 Plot
Each film in the Final Destination series follows the same formula. When someone engaged in a catastrophic catastrophe can foresee their own death and prevent it from occurring, a large number of young people strive to find ways to live forever.
Some of the people who were destined to die in the disaster are spared thanks to this person’s efforts. Even though the survivors avoided an inevitable end, they began to perish one by one in a sequence of bizarre episodes based on a tangled web of causality that death itself created. With rumors circulating that the next Final Destination film would be a “re-imagining” of the genre, fans are skeptical that the film will be ready to live up to the promise of its forerunners.
Final Destination 6 Cast
It’s probable that Final Destination 6 will have a whole new cast of characters, however, fans will be pleased to know that Tony Todd is rumored to make a comeback. Since Final Destination 6 has been described as a “re-imagining” of the series, we may assume that the writers have started from scratch. But don’t worry; Tony Todd, as everyone’s favorite mortician William Bludworth, will be returning soon.
Bloody Disgusting was the first to report that horror veteran Todd will be returning to the part he made famous in the upcoming film. At this time, he is the sole confirmed legacy character.
