Horror fans are beyond excited that the Final Destination franchise is being resurrected after 11 years! The sixth installment has been in the works since 2019 and due to COVID delays is finally expected to be released on HBO Max sometime in 2023. Since death simply won’t take no for answer, continue reading to learn more about what to expect from the upcoming plot and cast. Here’s everything that we know so far, including a change in the formula.

What cast and crew will be in Final Destination 6?

While Final Destination 6 is still in the writing stage, the final cast cannot be confirmed at this time. However, we do know a star from the original movie that has expressed interest in returning to his role:

Devon Sawa, who played Alex in the 2000 film said “I’ve watched every one of those movies since they’ve come out. But I think the ship has sailed. I’m getting older. I think they’re gonna be going with a new, young cast, but yeah man. I would do it. I would do it in a heartbeat.”

As for the crew, Final Destination 6 will be directed by Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein, who also directed 2018’s Freaks. Producer Craig Perry will also return to work alongside Sheila Hanahan Taylor and Jon Watts.

What will Final Destination 6 be about?

Although no official plot details have been shared, the core concept remains the same.

“A character has a premonition of a horrific and deadly event, cheats his or her own death, and saves several other lives in the process, only to have Death, as a personified but unstoppable force, come for the survivors one by one,” wrote the Hollywood Reporter.

That said, Perry did say in an interview with Digital Spy that the film could revolve around first responders.

“We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen, and police,” he said.

 “These people deal with death on the front lines every day and make choices that can cause people to live or die. We rely on their good judgment, expertise, and calm demeanor. So why not put those people in the nightmare situation where every choice can bring about life and death?”
