Jeffrey Reddick, the creator of the
Final Destination series, talks about how the upcoming
Final Destination 6 will be a type of reboot with a new formula from the other films. The first
Final Destination movie was released in 2000, and the property currently boasts five films, two comic books, and nine novels. The five movies all follow the same basic plot where a small group of people is saved from death after the protagonist sees a premonition of their coming demise. Then, they die one by one as death elaborately catches up to them in the form of a shower cord, a garbage disposal, a pool filter, an escalator, a logging truck accident, etc. They have all been marked for death and escaped it, so now it must be satiated.,The sixth movie in the franchise is now in development, as it has been for several years since it was announced in 2019. It has finally found a home on HBO Max with Jon Watts, director of
Spider-Man: No Way Home, producing along with his wife Dianne McGunigle, and longtime franchise producers Craig Perry and Sheila Hanahan Taylor are returning as well. With such a great team, fans are excited about what
Final Destination 6 has in store.,Related: Final Destination 6’s Unique Character Plan Can Revive The Franchise,Reddick sheds some light on what to expect in the next installment. In an interview with
Dread Central (transcribed by
Comicbook), he talks about the horror franchise he created. Though he is not involved in
Final Destination 6, he is being kept in the loop by Perry. Read his take on the sixth film below:,It has been over ten years since
Final Destination 5, so a return to the horror franchise is certainly exciting, especially with the promise of a new twist on the familiar formula. This change is likely a welcome one for fans since the first five films are very similar, as Reddick observed. This means each film eventually leads back to the first one, with the fifth installment being a surprise prequel.,Reddick’s horror franchise stands out as unique among its peers because it does not have a traditional antagonist or monster like other movies in the genre. Instead, the supernatural force of death itself pursues the
Final Destination characters, making it almost impossible to elude. The promise of a different take on this plot in 
Final Destination 6 is promising, as viewers do not quite know what to expect from the movie, but if this installment lives up to its predecessors, there will certainly be spectacular and elaborate death scenes that the fans of the series have come to love and expect.,Next: Final Destination 5’s Gymnastics Death Is The Series Most Underrated Setpiece,Source: Dread Central (transcribed by Comicbook)
