The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie has been a big success by any measure. It quickly became Blumhouse’s highest grossing movie in the studio’s history and it brought in the biggest five-day debut of any title on Peacock. You’d think that would make the movie a lock for a sequel, and thanks to an interview with the first film’s star, it does seem like things are full-steam ahead.

Josh Hutcherson was the lead in Five Nights at Freddy’s, and he’s absolutely itching to get in front of the camera for a follow-up. In an interview with Variety, Hutcherson gave an update on where things stand right now, and while a sequel hasn’t officially been announced yet, his comments show that the studio is very much getting things in line right now.

“I know they’re in the process right now of nailing down the story, and they want to get going as soon as possible. Obviously, the fans are amazing and die hard. For me to be a part of it was was so cool and phenomenal. We hoped it would connect with audiences, but I don’t think that anybody, even on our side of things, expected it to really connect the way that it did. I’m dying to get back on set. Emma Tammi, our director, was fantastic, and it was such a fun world to play in. I’m excited to see what they are doing next.”
