MGM is moving forward with a sequel to its animated The Addams Family movie reboot and has already scheduled it for an October 2021 release date.

According to Deadline, MGM has now scheduled The Addams Family 2 to hit theaters on October 22, 2021, following the first movie’s opening weekend. The animated Addams Family is already well on its way to recouping its $40 million production budget at the worldwide box office, which explains why the studio decided to give the go-ahead to a sequel so quickly.

The Addams Family is one of the rare films to appeal to children and families while also catering to those looking for some spooky fun around Halloween. The film is currently projecting to hold fairly steady at the box office this weekend, earning another $15 million in its second outing, even in the face of Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.

From directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon (Sausage Party), The Addams Family boasts an all-star voice cast that includes Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Charlize Theron (Morticia), Chloe Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Finn Wolfhard (Pugsly), Nick Kroll (Uncle Fester), Bette Midler (Grandma), Allison Janney (Margaux Needler), Martin Short (Grandpa Frump), Catherine H’Hara (Grandma Frump), Tituss Burgess (Glenn), Elsie Fisher (Parker), and Snoop Dogg (Coustin It).
