‘The Conjuring’ Will Come to a Chilling End in Fall 2025

The work of famed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren is coming to a long, and no doubt, spine-tingling end on the big screen.

New Line announced that the final, fourth film in the Conjuring horror franchise will arrive on Sept. 5, 2025, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Directed by Michael Chavez, the currently untitled movie will follow the original 2013 film, 2016’s The Conjuring 2, and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It from 2021. Per the outlet, the Conjuring universe has amassed $2 billion globally.

James Wan directed the original Conjuring, which brought in almost $320 million against its $20 million budget in 2013. The film follows the Warrens, paranormal investigators played impeccably by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, who meet Roger Perron (Ron Livingston), his wife Carolyn (Lili Taylor), and their five daughters. What unfolds is a Seventies, Amityville Horror-style movie about a family haunted by a nightmarish presence in their Rhode Island farmhouse.

Following the film’s blockbuster success, the Conjuring-verse led to a prequel, sequel, and spinoffs including The Nun, Annabelle, and more.

During an interview with Rolling Stone published on the day of the original’s release, Wan (who also created the Saw franchise) discussed the making of the film. “I wanted to go back and make a classic horror film like they used to do, and really embrace that and make a classic horror film with great actors and make it very classic and beautiful to look at,” the director said.

When asked if he was surprised by the movie’s great reviews, Wan replied, “I’m very surprised, actually.” He added, “Critics tend to be very hard on the horror genre. I think there’s something about The Conjuring that seems to be connecting with people, and I’m happy for that. Hopefully this will be inspiring studios to make more classic horror films, and to not be afraid of them.”
