If you have ever driven behind a trailer hauling a load of tree logs, then you may have decided to slow down a little or move to the other lane. Many people from the early 2000s may recognize this scenario from the film Final Destination, which starred actor Devon Sawa. 

The film followed a group of students who appeared to have cheated death, but were repeatedly followed until, well, Death came for them. With a franchise spanning five films, a new movie is due to be released in 2025.

So far there is not a lot of information about Final Destination: Bloodlines. However, it will likely follow the same format as the previous films. A movie in this franchise would usually follow a premonition of a deadly event, someone saving a group of people, and then death coming for the survivors. However it plays out, fans of the franchise are sure to be excited to see what else is in store!

Some names attached to the film are Richard Harmon, Brec Bassinger, Anna Lore, and Teo Briones. It is also likely we might see Tony Todd revisit his character William Bludworth, as he has appeared in the previous movies as well. Directors Zach Lipovosky and Adam B. Stein are signed on for the film as well alongside producers Jon Watts, Dianne McGunigle, and Craig Perry and Sheila Hanahan Taylor.

What makes this news even cooler is that Final Destination: Bloodlines will be released in time for the franchise’s 25th anniversary. If you're looking to watch the movies before the sixth film premieres, here's where you can do so and a refresher on what each film entailed.

Where to watch the Final Destination movies

Unfortunately, all five films in the franchise aren't available to stream online. However, you can rent or purchase the movies on Amazon.

Final Destination

The first film, released in 2000, followed a student named Alex Browning, who was on a school trip when he got a premonition about a plane crash. Despite saving some of his fellow classmates, they kept getting into trouble when it seemed like death was still coming for them. The movie also starred Ali Larter, Kerr Smith, Tony Todd, Amanda Detmer, and Daniel Roebuck, among others.

Final Destination 2: You Can’t Cheat Death Twice

In the sequel to the film, released in 2003, a girl named Kimberly, played by Criminal Minds star A.J. Cook, has a premonition of a horrific highway crash. She manages to save a few lives, but unfortunately death is once again coming for those who were supposed to die. 

Final Destination 3

The third film in the franchise was released in 2006 and followed a new group of students led by Wendy Christensen, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. In this one, the group escaped death via roller coaster but soon found themselves in the crosshairs of death once again. The film also stared Ryan Merriman, Kris Lemche, and Alexz Johnson. 

Final Destination 4

Death really does not like being cheated and this is a continuing theme in the fourth film after a young man named Nick O’Bannon (Bobby Campo) has a premonition that his friends will die in a gruesome racetrack accident. But despite saving their lives, they all come to other ends and he tries to prevent it from happening to himself. This film came out three years after the third movie in 2009. Other stars of the film include FBI: Most Wanted's Shantal VanSanten, Krista Allen, and Nick Zano.

Final Destination 5

In the 2011 film, a man named Sam (Nicholas D’Agosto) manages to save his colleagues from death while driving over a suspension bridge. However just like the previous characters in other films, they find themselves on death’s door in other ways. The movie's stars include Emma Bell, Miles Fisher, and Ellen Wroe.
