Death is back as the ultimate inescapable antagonist in Final Destination 6, and the franchise’s next installment will shake up the formula. Final Destination started life as a spec script for an episode of The X-Files by creator Jeffrey Reddick, under the title “Flight 180.” 2000’s Final Destination proved to be a surprise smash hit thanks to its simple but ingenious premise, the creativity of its deaths, and refraining from showing Death as a flesh and blood killer but instead depicting it as an unstoppable force of nature.

Several sequels later, 2011’s Final Destination 5 received surprisingly strong reviews for regaining the sense of fun inherent to the series. While the Final Destination series has been dormant for a while, it was always a solid earner for New Line both theatrically and on home media, with the five films collectively grossing hundreds of millions worldwide. Despite this, it seemed that the Final Destination franchise might be over — but with recent news of a forthcoming “re-imagining” on the horizon, Final Destination 6 has helped the franchise cheat death yet again.

Filming Begins & A Title Is Revealed

Though news has been scant regarding the long-awaited sequel, the latest update sees filming begin on Final Destination 6 after years of development and delays. Producer Craig Perry let the public in on the process of making Final Destination 6 and revealed that “After a long, hard slog through the pandemic and the strikes, Day One is finally in the can.” He also clarified that the newest Final Destination movie will be released theatrically around the globe, eschewing a streaming debut.

Additionally, Perry dropped the official working title for the next movie, Final Destination: Bloodlines. “PS: I know, I know — Pet Sematary: Bloodlines,” Perry cheekily wrote, “But this is the title we’ve had for three years, and we’re keeping it… for now.” Based on Perry’s quote, the working title for Final Destination 6 might not stick. He also put particular emphasis on 2025 being the 25th anniversary of the franchise, hinting that the movie might be released then.

Final Destination 6 is confirmed, and Freaks co-directors Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein are the directors of Final Destination 6, who won the job by faking their deaths during a now-iconic Zoom call with studio execs. While Final Destination 6 was previously written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan of the Saw franchise, Scream and Scream VI screenwriter Guy Busick later took over.

Though a release date is still forthcoming, Final Destination 6 began filming in early March 2024 and could be rushed into theaters if things go well. Producer Craig Perry put a particular emphasis on 2025 being the 25th anniversary of the first film, and it would make sense that the sixth movie would be released around that date. While nothing is confirmed, Final Destination 6 will likely premiere in 2025.

Final Destination 6 Cast

Who Will Appear In Number 6?

So far, the only confirmed cast member for Final Destination 6 is Tony Todd, who’ll be reprising his role as William Bludworth. Bludworth is an enigmatic presence throughout most of the Final Destination movies, serving as a guide of sorts who informs each fresh crop of doomed teenagers exactly how determined their fate is. Final Destination 6 will not only feature Tony Todd back as Bludworth once more, but the movie will also delve into the character’s history and his connection with death.

Tony Todd previously appeared as William Bludworth in Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Final Destination 3, and Final Destination 5.

The Sixth Movie Will Change Everything

The plot of Final Destination 6 is surprisingly one of the most already-discussed aspects of the movie. Franchise creator Jeffrey Reddick explained (via Hidden Remote) that the movie “is not just going to be another kind of ‘we set up a group of people, they cheat death, and then just death gets them.” Reddick added “…this is a true Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve kind of established.”

The only real details revealed about the sixth movie is how it will focus on first responders and emergency workers who are already deeply familiar with death – only this time, they’re the ones in its path. It has been hinted that the rules of the Final Destination universe will be shaken up in Final Destination 6, though that won’t likely be revealed until the film premiers. Since Tony Todd’s Bludworth will be a key part of the film, perhaps his backstory will somehow inform the major changes.
