The potential for a second Jason Reitman – the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan – helmed movie was teased in the end credits of Afterlife, revealing the next instalment will be set in the iconic firehouse setting in New York City.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Reitman and Kenan gave an exciting update to the next chapter.
“The code name for the next movie is ‘Firehouse,'” stated Reitman. “The reference, of course, is the Ghostbuster’ headquarters in the two ’80s films.”
Kenan then teased that the story had been ready to go for a while, even before the release of Afterlife. The writer revealed:”We’re writing as quickly as we can. We had the story before we finished Afterlife,
“We have been crafting this with as much care as it took to build Afterlife into a worthy sequel.”

The pair also confirmed Ernie Hudson will be returning as Winston Zeddemore. He originated the role in the 1984 classic as part of the legendary squad alongside Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and the late Harold Ramis.
When talking about how much Hudson will be involved, Reitman said: “The character of Winston Zeddemore and Zeddemore Industries figures strongly into the future of Ghostbusters.”
As well as the Christmas-released sequel, fans can also look forward to an animated series heading to Netflix with Reitman and Kenan attached as executive producers.
