The Nun 2 will be released in the fall of 2023

The Nun 2, which will be released five years after the first film, will cause The Conjuring Universe to grow even further. The Conjuring Universe, one of Warner Bros.’s most continuously lucrative brands, consists of the main series and several spin-offs, including the whole Annabelle trilogy. The Nun, a spinoff of The Conjuring 2, was published on September 7, 2018. The evil ghost Valak, who made his debut in the second Conjuring movie, was the subject of The Nun.

Recently, Warner Bros. Discovery has abruptly canceled or delayed many of their anticipated superhero offerings. However, if you’re a lover of the horror genre, WB has just given you some frightfully exciting news. The Nun 2’s official theatrical release date was just announced as September 8, 2023. As a result, the movie will be released in theaters exactly five years after the 2018 release of The Nun. This implies that the sequel will be released just in time for Valak to scare the heck out of the 2023 Halloween season.

While the sequel is still over a year away, Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona, The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It) will return to the director’s chair along with actresses Taissa Farmiga and Bonnie Aarons as Sister Irene and the villainous Valak, respectively, for The Conjuring spin-off. The script was written by the vile Akela Cooper, and the plot is as follows:

France in 1956. Murder of a priest occurs. A bad thing is growing. In the follow-up to the massively successful worldwide film THE NUN, SISTER IRENE encounters THE DEMON NUN, VALAK, once more.

That’s not a lot to base your judgment on, yet The Nun is one of The Conjuring series’ most overlooked movies. Valak made her infamous debut in The Conjuring 2 in 2016 and later had her own prequel. The Conjuring helped revive the haunted home movie subgenre in popular culture, but it was a unique movie in that its gothic overtones and Romanian setting had more in common with the vintage Universal Monster pictures than your typical haunted house movie nowadays.

The movie is packed with terrifying scenes, spine-tingling acting, and some nice ties to the wider Conjuring narrative. The Nun also made a profit at the movie office despite receiving mixed reviews from critics and viewers alike during its initial release, earning a chilling $365 million globally on a rumored $22 million budget.

As a result, it will be fascinating to watch what Cooper and Chaves contribute to the sequel. James Wan, the man who founded the Conjuring universe, has recently shown great confidence in both creators. It is impossible to overstate Cooper’s incredible work on Malignant, one of the best horror movies of the twenty-first century, while Chaves did a remarkable job advancing the primary Conjuring storyline in the summer’s shamefully underappreciated The Devil Made Me Do It. No lover of the horror genre should undervalue The Nun 2 because all the elements are in place for it to be a highly intriguing effort.

In 2023, WB plans to make a big splash with the horror genre. The Nun 2 and Evil Dead Rise’s theatrical debuts were just revealed by the production company. Being a horror lover right now is quite thrilling, especially if you enjoy well-known series like The Conjuring. You may currently watch The Conjuring trilogy on HBO Max (Raised By Wolves Season 3) as we wait for The Nun 2, which will take place on September 8, 2023, to bring this terrifying universe to a close.
