The Conjuring 4: All you need to knowWarner Bros.

The Conjuring 4 finally has a confirmed release date, although we've still got the wait for the Warrens' final case.

On July 9, 2024, Warner Bros announced that the currently-untitled final Conjuring movie will be released in September 2025.

We don't yet know what The Conjuring 4 will be about, but we do know that it'll mark the final outing for Ed and Lorraine Warren. It might not be the end of the entire universe though, which has expanded to include multiple spin-offs.

We do know though that Michael Chaves – who directed The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and The Nun II – is directing the new movie, while Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick – who wrote the second and third movies – is writing the fourth.

Now that we have a release date, here's everything you need to know about The Conjuring 4.

The Conjuring 4 release date: When can we expect The Conjuring 4?

The Conjuring 4 will be released in cinemas on September 5, 2025, barring any production delays.

According to The Hollywood Reporter in February 2024, the movie was set to start filming this summer in Atlanta, but we've have no word since whether that is still the plan.

Now that it's got a release date, we'd assume that filming will start soon in order to hit that September release date. However, Warner Bros has yet to confirm when production will get underway.

The Conjuring 4 cast: Who's coming back for The Conjuring 4?

It's not been officially confirmed, but it's expected that Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will be back as Ed and Lorraine Warren – it's not a Conjuring movie without them.

Fortunately, they seem up for more outings so it won't be a case of persuading them to return.

"Oh my God, I'd love to [continue]," Farmiga said, with Wilson adding: "We constantly want to push these characters. I would like to – for no other reason than I would want to keep playing opposite Vera."

If you can't wait for The Conjuring 4 to see the Warrens again, they pop up in The Nun 2 credit scene in a brief teaser for the next movie.

Other returns are harder to predict, especially since the third movie didn't feature many crossovers from the wider Conjuring universe.

Sterling Jerins reprised her role as Judy Warren, while there were also return appearances for Steve Coulter as Father Gordon and Shannon Kook as Drew Thomas. All of them could be back in the fourth movie, but that's probably it for comebacks.

As in the other Conjuring movies, a fourth outing would cover an entirely new case, which means a largely new cast, outside of the main characters.

The Conjuring 4 plot: Which cases could The Conjuring 4 cover?

The third movie ends in November 1981 after the trial of Arne Johnson, and we can assume that The Conjuring 4 will take place after this in the timeline.

That still leaves some interesting cases from the real-life experiences of the Warrens that could be used as a basis for a new movie, which could see them head back into a haunted house.

In 1986, the Warrens investigated a double helping of haunted houses with the Snedeker house and the Smurl Haunting. The former has already loosely inspired The Haunting in Connecticut, and both revolved around houses supposedly infested by demons.

After the third movie broke out of the haunted house formula, it might be a disappointing backwards step for the series to return to one.

If they want to avoid that trope, there's a case that's yet to be covered from the Warrens' case files that holds a lot of promise: the legend of the White Lady at the Union Cemetery in Easton, Connecticut.

While the Warrens didn't directly investigate the phenomenon, they have claimed to have a video of the White Lady in action and have written a book about it.

It's said that the spirit appears in a delicate white nightgown or wedding dress and moves through the cemetery, with reports that drivers have even seen her outside of the cemetery, causing them to swerve.

"I can tell you that I know for a fact that this place is haunted, it's one of the most haunted places around," noted Lorraine Warren – and if that isn't scope for a Conjuring movie, we don't know what is.

The Conjuring 4 trailer: Any footage of The Conjuring 4 yet?

The Conjuring 4 has yet to start filming so we'll be waiting a while for footage. Maybe we'll get a spooky surprise this Halloween is filming does start this summer.

The Conjuring 4 is released in cinemas on September 5, 2025.
