As Eli Roth’s slasher movie Thanksgiving crosses the $30 million mark at the box office, we’ve learned tonight that Thanksgiving 2 has officially been ordered up this week!

Sony’s TriStar plans on releasing Thanksgiving 2 in theaters worldwide in 2025. Eli Roth and Jeff Rendell are back to write the screenplay for the upcoming sequel.

“We’re gonna take a year off so we can really, really write a great script. We want to outdo ourselves. Make it better than the first one,” Roth teases tonight.

Yes, John Carver will be back for seconds. Stay tuned for more information.

The first film, an expansion of Roth’s faux trailer seen in Grindhouse (2007), was released in theaters worldwide by TriStar Pictures and Spyglass Media Group (Scream).

Thanksgiving is receiving rave reviews from critics and audiences and has earned $30 million globally in its first two weeks of release with an impressive second week hold at -31%.

In Thanksgiving, “After a Black Friday riot ends in tragedy, a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer terrorizes Plymouth, Massachusetts – the birthplace of the infamous holiday.”
