Halloween Movie Timeline Continuity Explained
The Halloween franchise is (probably not) ending with the release of Halloween Ends, a sequel to last year’s Halloween Kills, Halloween (2018), and Halloween (1979), but not Halloween (2007), Halloween II (either of them), or any other sequels and remakes.
