Although the Happy Death Day series is currently on hold right now after the release of 2019’s Happy Death Day 2U, the franchise director Christopher Landon has discussed how he will approach the third instalment if it was to be developed in the future – which Landon previously revealed that its working title is Happy Death Day To Us.
In an interview with Empire, Landon explained how Happy Death Day To Us will differ from the first two instalments in the series with the main factor being that it won’t take place in one day.
“The idea for the third film is not set in the same day if that’s a big spoiler. So it can happen later. We’re not up against a really difficult clock right now. The other movies were hard… everybody had to look the same, be the same. The pressure is off there.”
While there is nothing official in the works at the moment, producer Jason Blum has previously stated he is “working overtime” to get a third Happy Death Day instalment into production.
The original 2017 Happy Death Day follows Tree (Rothe) who relives the same day every time she is murdered on her birthday, forcing her to uncover the masked killer’s identity and stop the time loop. The second film featured another masked killer while also expanding on the world and introducing an alternate dimension storyline, reminiscent of Back to the Future Part II. Happy Death Day 2U also ended with a post-credits scene that could lead to a possible sci-fi future for the franchise.
