By Junkies now you probably already know, but it is official, Jamie Lee Curtis will return to the role that started her career in the next installment of Halloween. Now in case you didn't know, the next Halloween will actually pick up the story from Halloween II and not any subsequent film.

Press Release: Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode in HALLOWEEN. Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s HALLOWEEN on Friday, October 19, 2018.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
HALLOWEEN will be produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the HALLOWEEN series since its inception. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
HALLOWEEN will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures.
