So, while The Nun is not one of the movies we’ll be enjoying during summer’s thrills, we will be seeing it soon. When is The Nun 2 coming out? Here is everything we know about the movie so far.

After a long wait, a release date has finally been announced for the Nun sequel. The original movie premiered in 2018, and while critics didn’t give it great reviews, audiences loved it and happily welcome the movie to the growing Conjuring universe.

The Nun 2 first look

Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at the film. The image, which you can see here, shows Irene surrounded by faceless nuns. According to Chavez, they’ll be serving an important role in the sequel.

"The faceless nuns are back. That was a fan favorite and also became part of the marketing campaign of the first film. So they’re definitely back in the film. I don’t want to spoil anything else [about them]."
