‘The Conjuring 3’ Has Officially Been Delayed Until 2021

It was previously rumored that the next entry in the massively popular Conjuring franchise, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, would most likely be postponed. Audiences were displeased to hear it likely wouldn’t make its original September 2020 release date, and while fans were hopeful that it could be released this year, it seems that The Conjuring 3 is being delayed after all.

As revealed by Warner Bros., the film will now be hitting theaters on June 4, 2021. It’s actually a bit of a fitting change, considering the first two Conjuring films were each released in June and July. Perhaps the more autumn-associated date just wasn’t meant to be for this particular franchise.

The film’s director, Michael Chaves, said the following regarding the delay:

“UPDATE: Our theatrical release has been pushed back to the hopefully bright, but distant future of June 4, 2021. (Also sorry to the many Batman fans as we’re taking that weekend.) And I know – that date seems very far away. I’m sure this brings some angst and frustration – even more than what everyone must be already feeling. I have my own personal list of movies, books, and video games that I’m counting down. Knowing that stuff is coming gives me a sense of stability in a very unstable world.”

It looks like fans can expect The Conjuring 3 to hit theaters next Summer. Hopefully movie theaters will be able to reopen properly, because with the massive amount of horror films being pushed back until next year (along with everything else) it’s going to be one crazy time for fans.

The next film in the franchise, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, was directed by Michael Chaves, who previously directed The Curse of La Llorona.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will be returning as main characters Ed and Lorraine Warren, with Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard being added to the cast.
