The Conjuring 4 hasn’t been greenlit yet, but considering how popular the series and wider universe are, it’s likely to happen. Here’s what we know.
The Conjuring has become one of the more successful horror franchises in recent memory, but will The Conjuring 4 happen? It depends on how successful the newest entry, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, is at the box office after being delayed from a 2020 release. Considering the popularity of the series and the relatively low budgets of horror films, it’s likely that The Conjuring 4 could happen within the next few years.
The Conjuring series follows the adventures of Ed and Lorraine Warren, a couple of real-life paranormal experts and demonologists. The films are extreme embellishments of their various cases throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and while they were well known in some circles at the time, the movies have increased their fame and notoriety over the past few years. There have even been various spin-offs utilizing cases that aren’t explored in the main Conjuring movies, such as the Annabelle franchise and movies like The Nun and The Curse of La Llorona. They’ve managed to create a whole cinematic universe of ghost stories.

Considering how successful the Conjuring Universe as a whole has been there’s really no reason for the producers to not move forward with The Conjuring 4. While The Devil Made Me Do It was originally slated to premiere in September of 2020, it, like many other studio films, was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s now being released simultaneously in theaters and on HBOMax, a model that’s proven successful for films like Godzilla vs Kong. Here’s everything we know about a potential The Conjuring 4.
The Conjuring 4 Release Date Info
While Warner Bros. hasn’t greenlit The Conjuring 4 yet, the producers, writers, and cast of the previous films have all said they’d be happy to come back. There was a three-year gap between the first and second Conjuring movies, and a five-year gap between the second and The Devil Made Me Do It. It can be expected that The Conjuring 4 might take a similar amount of time, and it could be released sometime in 2024 or 2025.
The Conjuring 4 Story Details
With The Devil Made Me Do It ending in 1981, it’s expected that The Conjuring 4 movie would take place sometime during the 1980s. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga would return as Ed and Lorraine Warren, and the Warrens had plenty of cases during the decade that could serve as the basis for the next film’s story. In 1986, they had a case that later went on to loosely inspire the 2009 film The Haunting in Connecticut, so the producers may try to avoid the Warrens’ more famous cases in order to keep the series fresh. One case they could use is the terrifying story of the Smurl haunting, which the Warrens investigated in 1986.
The Conjuring Universe has proven to be one of the more successful examples of a cinematic universe outside of Marvel or DC. Warner Bros no doubt sees it as a continuously lucrative franchise, and thus it can be expected that a new Conjuring film is on the horizon after The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.
