Disney initially revealed plans for a follow-up film in 2019 with the hopes that the trio of actors would return, but Midler, Parker, and Najimy hadn’t officially confirmed their participation until now. Production is expected to begin this fall with the sequel of the popular film set to debut on Disney Plus sometime in 2022.

According to Disney+’s official synopsis, the sequel will follow “three young women who accidentally bring the Sanderson Sisters back to modern-day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.” Sounds exciting already!
Hocus Pocus fans will hopefully only have to endure one more Halloween without the sequel. According to the above Instagram post from Parker, Hocus Pocus 2 is set to arrive in 2022. Let’s cross our fingers the magic appears in time for the spooky season.
