During a recent interview with Collider, series creator Jeffrey Reddick stated Final Destination 6 “unearths a whole deep layer” of the franchise’s ongoing mythology, although he remains cagey as to what that layer actually is.
This film doesn’t just kind of add another layer. Usually there’s a new layer every film where it’s like, ‘Oh, well, this can save you or this can save you.’ This film dives into the film in such a unique way that it attacks it from a different angle so you don’t feel like, ‘Oh, there’s an amazing setup and then there’s gonna be one wrinkle that can potentially save you all that you have to kind of make a moral choice about or do to solve it.’ There’s an expansion of the universe that – I’m being so careful.
There’s an expansion of the world of Final Destination that I think fans are gonna be really interested in and intrigued by. When I say it doesn’t add a layer, it’s not just, ‘Hey, if you murder somebody in your place, you’ll live.’ It kind of unearths a whole deep layer to the story that kind of, yes, makes it really, really interesting.
André Øvredal provided IGN with an update on his long-awaited sequel to Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
We have a story. We have a script. We’ve been working on the script as late as last year and even slightly into this year. The process obviously stopped with the strike — but it’s alive, for sure. COVID and then [The Last Voyage of the Demeter] eating up two years of my life certainly put a dent in the progress.

Appearing as a guest on Variety’s Awards Circuits Podcast, executive producer Karyn Kusama revealed the third season of Yellowjackets will finally see the surviving teammates re-enter society.
I’ve been so excited by this. The concept of that immediate aftermath of re-entry into the world, to me, there’s a whole season worth of material there. And the fact that this is such a long game that each of these characters is facing, in terms of reorienting themselves to whatever normalcy is supposed to be. I’m sure we’re going to learn that their normal is a lot different than our normal…there’s a lot that needs to be figured out between Season 2 and Season 3.
