Thanksgiving 2

Thanksgiving 2 Release Date, Trailer, Cast, Plot and Everything We Know

Are you ready for another terrifying holiday season? Thanksgiving 2 is coming! After the shocking and bloody events of the first movie, director Eli Roth is bringing back the holiday horror for a sequel that promises more scares and slashes. Here, we’ll tell you everything we know so far about Thanksgiving 2, including its potential release date, cast, plot details, and what fans can expect from this highly anticipated follow-up.

Thanksgiving 2 Release Date

While an official release date hasn’t been announced yet, we can expect Thanksgiving 2 to hit theatres around Thanksgiving 2025. In a video announcement, Eli Roth mentioned that they’re taking a year to get the script just right, so a late 2025 release seems likely.

The first Thanksgiving movie came out in November 2023, just before the Thanksgiving holiday, so it’s safe to assume that Thanksgiving 2 will follow a similar pattern.

Thanksgiving 2 Trailer

Since the movie is still in the early stages of development, there’s no official trailer for Thanksgiving 2 yet.

However, we can expect a teaser or a full trailer to drop closer to the release date, probably around Thanksgiving 2024. Until then, fans can re-watch the trailers and clips from the first Thanksgiving movie to get their fix of holiday horror.

Thanksgiving 2 Cast

While the cast hasn’t been officially confirmed, we can expect to see many of the surviving characters from the first movie returning for Thanksgiving 2. This includes Nell Verlaque as Jessica, Addison Rae as Gaby, Jalen Thomas Brooks as Bobby, Milo Manheim as Ryan, and Gabriel Davenport as Scuba.

Additionally, Rick Hoffman has teased that he’ll likely reprise his role as Thomas Wright, Jessica’s father who was responsible for the Black Friday riot that started the whole deadly chain of events.

The biggest question mark is whether Patrick Dempsey will return as Sheriff Eric Newton, who was revealed to be the masked killer, John Carver, in the first movie. While his character appeared to perish in an explosion, horror movie villains have a knack for surviving, so we can’t rule out Dempsey’s return just yet.

Thanksgiving 2 Plot

If Thanksgiving 2 is a direct continuation of the first movie, as suggested by the cast, we can expect the story to follow Jessica and her friends as they deal with the traumatic events of the previous film. Nell Verlaque has hinted that the sequel will focus on character development and explore how these characters cope with such a horrific experience.

Of course, the biggest plot point will likely revolve around the return of John Carver, the masked killer seeking revenge for the Black Friday riot. Whether it’s the same killer (Sheriff Newton) or someone else taking up the mantle, we can expect more brutal slayings and holiday-themed murders.

Thanksgiving 2 Production

After the success of the first Thanksgiving movie, Paramount Pictures quickly greenlit the sequel. However, the production has already faced some challenges. Initially, director Matt Shakman was set to helm Thanksgiving 2, but he later dropped out to work on Marvel’s Fantastic Four reboot.

In January 2024, it was announced that Toby Haynes would take over directing duties, with Seth Grahame-Smith writing the script. J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot production company will produce the film, but it’s unclear if this is the same project as Thanksgiving 2 or a separate Thanksgiving movie.

What fans can expect from Thanksgiving 2?

Fans of the first Thanksgiving movie can expect more of the same bloody, over-the-top horror that Eli Roth is known for. With the success of the first film, the sequel will likely double down on the holiday-themed kills and satirical commentary on consumerism and greed.

Additionally, with the focus on character development, we can expect to see a deeper exploration of the survivors’ psyches and how they cope with the trauma they’ve endured. This could add an extra layer of depth to the typical slasher movie formula.


While details are still scarce, Thanksgiving 2 is shaping up to be another holiday horror extravaganza from the twisted mind of Eli Roth. Fans can look forward to more brutal kills, holiday-themed scares, and a continuation of the story that left them on the edge of their seats.

With a potential 2025 release date, there’s still time for more information to emerge, but one thing is certain: Thanksgiving will never be the same again after this sequel hits theatres.
