Apparently original co-writer/director Christopher Landon shared his idea for a sequel to actress Jessica Rothe, saying: "The sequel, the way he described it to me, elevates the movie from being a horror movie, and I wouldn't even say it's just a horror movie because it's a horror, comedy, rom-com drama, into a Back to the Future type of genre film where the sequel joins us right from where we left off, it explains a lot of things in the first one that didn't get explained, and it elevates everything. I was really pleased to know that we weren't just gonna be pushing all the buttons that people loved the first time, over and over again, 'cause I think that gets old. I'm really excited to see if it comes to fruition and, if it does, what the final product looks like. I hope we get to do it! I had a ball!"
Israel Broussard returns as the love interest "Carter."
Jessica Rothe returns as "Tree."
This is the sequel to 2017's Happy Death Day.
