The long-term way forward for this franchise is generally at midnight, however there’s a small slate of sequels and spinoffs already greenlit and prepared for manufacturing. They’re going to not solely dig deeper into the Conjuring’s lore, however take inspiration from the now notorious instances that the Warrens have spent a lifetime inspecting.
In Annabelle and Annabelle: Creation, the real-life possessed doll (now locked away within the occult museum belonging to Ed and Lorraine Warren) is moved from dwelling to dwelling, destroying the lives of each household it touches. Now, the as-yet-untitled Annabelle 3 will discover a timeline that takes place – oddly sufficient – in between the occasions of the very first Conjuring film. From director Gary Dauberman (who penned the primary two Annabelle motion pictures, in addition to The Nun, IT, and IT: Chapter Two), the third Annabelle will happen shortly after the Warrens first got here into possession of the doll, however earlier than they investigated the Perron household hauntings.
The film is predicted to contain the Warrens themselves, however will focus totally on their daughter Judy. Annabelle will possess different haunted gadgets positioned within the occult museum, making them come to life a la Night at the Museum – solely scarier.
The Conjuring 3
Although there’s presently no official synopsis for The Conjuring 3, director James Wan (who could solely return as producer on the third installment) has revealed some minor particulars relating to its course.
For one, Wan is adamant that The Conjuring 3 deviate from its first two predecessors by not involving a haunted house. Rumors have circulated that the third installment could sort out one of many Warrens’ extra obscure instances involving a person named Invoice Ramsey who was reportedly possessed by a werewolf-like demon within the UK, although this hasn’t been confirmed. It will additionally carry the ghost-hunting couple again to an identical setting as The Conjuring 2, however would introduce a significant time leap from the second film (which the franchise is not any stranger to), on condition that Ramsey’s exorcism befell in 1983.
The Crooked Man

The Nun 2
Whereas there is no such thing as a official phrase on a sequel to The Nun being greenlit – and even thought-about – the chance of Warner Bros giving it the go-ahead is totally potential. So, assuming The Nun’s field workplace warrants a sequel, the place might it probably go? By the tip of The Nun, the demon Valak is seemingly defeated. Nevertheless, contemplating the truth that it returns round twenty years later for The Conjuring 2, it’d make sense that the Conjuring Universe would wish to craft a bridge between the flicks to fill within the blanks.
Now, the tip of The Nun does reveal the direct connection that Lorraine Warren has with Valak, which bridges the 2 motion pictures, nevertheless it does not clarify how Valak comes again from the lifeless, so to talk. So, except Lorraine’s clairvoyance by some means helps Valak present itself out of skinny air by means of her imaginative and prescient alone, a sequel would assist spell out its return.
Then once more, a sequel for The Nun might additionally focus its consideration on Maurice (performed by Jonas Bloquet), who’s been marked by Valak, between the occasions of The Nun and The Conjuring.
