Last summer it was announced that Paramount and Blumhouse are returning to the Paranormal Activity franchise with a seventh installment in the franchise, and you can now mark your calendars (and presumably get ready for more hellish nights of sleep), as the film has been given a new 2022 release date.

According to Bloody Disgusting (whose post was shared on the official Paranormal Activity Twitter account), the next Paranormal Activity movie is now slated for a March 4th, 2022 release, pushing it back nearly a year from its previous March 19th, 2021 release.

In the 2000s and 2010s, Paramount and Blumhouse teamed up for six Paranormal Activity movies that brought found footage scares to a whole new generation. The last of those six films was Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension in 2015.

No further details on the new film are known at this time, including who will direct it. We'll have to wait and see whether or not the next installment will directly follow the events of the previous films or deliver an entirely new take on the franchise.

Since the first film's wide theatrical release in 2009, the Paranormal Activity franchise has been a lucrative property for Paramount and Blumhouse, with each film's domestic box office gross surpassing its production budget, particularly Oren Peli's first film, which brought in more than $107 million domestically on an estimated production budget of $15,000 (according to Box Office Mojo).

We'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are announced. In the meantime, what would you like to see in a new Paranormal Activity?
