The “ghost with the most” is receiving his next big moment, putting to rest what may have been one of the most rumor-generating movie possibilities in film history.

Warner Bros. confirmed to CNN on Tuesday that the release date for “Beetlejuice 2,” the long-awaited sequel to Tim Burton’s 1988 macabre masterpiece, will be September of 2024. (The parent company of both CNN and Warner Bros. is called Warner Bros. Discovery.)

Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder reportedly reprise their roles in the upcoming picture, which also features “Wednesday” and “Scream VI” actress Jenna Ortega.

With a cast that included Keaton, Ryder, Alec Baldwin, and Geena Davis, “Beetlejuice” became a critical and commercial triumph, inspiring both animated spinoffs and a long-running Broadway musical that just closed.

Keaton’s performance as a fast-talking and very inappropriate poltergeist out to take advantage of the “recently deceased” Maitlands (Baldwin and Davis) and the new residents of their former domicile contributed greatly to the first film’s success.

One of the strongest character introductions in “Beetlejuice” is by Ryder’s gothic Lydia Deetz, daughter of said renters; this was only her third screen credit at the time. Catherine O’Hara, the Emmy-winning star of “Schitt’s Creek,” shot to prominence in the film as Lydia’s scrumptious stepmother Delia Deetz.

Beetlejuice 2 Release Date

After years of speculation, CNN finally reported in 2016 that Ryder agreed with the idea of a sequel, saying, “It would be great if it happened if it was the right circumstances.” Even as early as 2013, Burton and Keaton dropped hints that a sequel would be in the works.

The current writers’ strike may or may not affect the production and release dates of “Beetlejuice 2.” The release date for the film is slated for September 6, 2024, Friday.
