We don’t have a release date for the Warrens’ fourth film, but we do have some details. The new film is being written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and produced by James Wan and Peter Safran. Johnson-McGoldrick also penned The Conjuring 2 and 3, so the upcoming film is in capable hands.
So, while we wait for further information about The Conjuring 4, here’s all you need to know, including possible real-life cases to investigate.
The Conjuring 4 release date: When can we expect to see The Conjuring 4?
As previously stated, The Conjuring 4 has been confirmed, but no release date has been set.
There was a three-year hiatus between The Conjuring (July 2013) and The Conjuring 2 (June 2016), and a five-year break between The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. However, it was originally scheduled for a September 2020 release, so that would have been four years.
The Conjuring 4 cast: Who is returning for The Conjuring 4?
It hasn’t been announced, but we’d be surprised if Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga didn’t return as Ed and Lorraine Warren because it wouldn’t be a Conjuring movie without them. Fortunately, they appear eager for additional adventures, so convincing them to return won’t be a problem.
“Oh my God, I’d love to [continue],” Farmiga remarked, with Wilson adding, “We continually want to push these characters. I’d prefer to, if for no other reason than to continue acting opposite Vera.” Farmiga also hinted that there’s “certainly some talk of continuing” in April 2021, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens there.
Other returns are more difficult to anticipate, particularly as the third film did not involve many crossovers from the larger Conjuring universe.
Sterling Jerins returned to her role as Judy Warren, and Steve Coulter as Father Gordon, and Shannon Kook as Drew Thomas also made cameos. All of them could return in the fourth film, but that’s probably the end of comebacks.
The narrative of The Conjuring 4: What cases could The Conjuring 4 cover?
The third film concludes in November 1981, following the conclusion of Arne Johnson’s trial, and we can presume that The Conjuring 4 will take place after this point in history. That still leaves some intriguing cases from the Warrens’ real-life experiences that could serve as the foundation for a new film in which they return to a haunted house.
The Conjuring 4 trailer: Is there any new footage of The Conjuring 4?
Because it was only recently verified, we’ll have to wait a long time for footage. Keep this page bookmarked, and we’ll update it if new information becomes available.

Johnson-horror McGoldrick’s writing career extends back to 2009’s disturbing thriller Orphan, which also featured a great performance by Farmiga. Earlier this year, the author returned to write the prequel Orphan: First Kill. Though no narrative elements for the next Conjuring film have been announced, the series is based on the real-life cases of Ed and Lorraine Warren, so Johnson-McGoldrick has thousands of files worth of source material to draw from for inspiration.
An announcement has been made about a reporter
The Hollywood Reporter announced today that The Conjuring 4 is officially in the works, with The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick returning, as well as producing pair James Wan and Peter Safran. Johnson-McGoldrick is a series favorite and regular Wan collaborator, having written the scripts for the second and third Conjuring films, as well as Wan’s upcoming DCEU sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which also stars Patrick Wilson and Jason Momoa from The Conjuring.
Wilson and his Conjuring universe counterpart, Vera Farmiga, will both return for the forthcoming sequel, according to Wan’s Instagram post. The two have appeared in four films as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in Wan’s Conjuring Universe, which has produced a total of eight films. Wilson and Farmiga most recently reprised their roles as the Warrens in 2021’s The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, which increased the franchise’s cumulative profit to more than $2.1 billion dollars. The Conjuring has become the highest-grossing horror franchise to date, as well as one of the most lucrative franchises in modern media, despite having a combined budget of under $178 million.
