With the highly-anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the follow-up film to Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, currently scheduled to debut in theatres on November 11th, 2021, the film has received its age rating.
Similar to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, the MPA has officially handed Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife a PG-13 rating for “supernatural action and suggestive material.”
Although fans of the Ghostbusters franchise are going to have to wait slightly longer for the sequel following several delays as a result of the ongoing global health crisis, star Ernie Hudson, who is set to reprise his role as Winston Zeddemore, has previously claimed that Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the sequel “fans have been hoping for” and will completely tie into the first two Ghostbusters movies. While Ghostbusters star Annie Potts, who is set to return as Janine Melnitz, has promised that the sequel will be “worth the wait.”
From writer and director Jason Reitman, Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the next chapter in the Ghostbusters universe and follows a single mother and her two children who arrive in a small town and begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is directed by Jason Reitman and stars Carrie Coon (The Leftovers), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Mckenna Grace (Captain Marvel), Paul Rudd (Avengers: Endgame), Bokeem Woodbine (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Celeste O’Connor (Wetlands), Oliver Cooper (Mindhunter) and newcomer Logan Kim, along with returning Ghostbusters cast members Dan Aykroyd (Ray Stantz), Bill Murray (Peter Venkman), Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore), Sigourney Weaver (Dana Barrett), and Annie Potts (Janine Melnitz).
