Fan Petition Asks Netflix for ‘Hubie Halloween’ Sequel

A fan petition is asking Netflix for a sequel to the network’s 2020 comedy hit Hubie Halloween.

Hubie Halloween was the top-ranked movie of 2020 on Netflix for the United States, and it finished in second place for the year internationally, behind only the Polish drama 365 Days. After its premiere in October, Hubie Halloween became just the second movie to ever spend 14 consecutive days at the top of Netflix’s Daily Top 10 list, second place on the all-time list.

Adam Sandler stars, along with a cast that also includes Julie Bowen, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Maya Rudolph, Ray Liotta, Michael Chiklis, Kenan Thompson, Steve Buscemi, China Anne McClain, Paris Berelc, Peyton List, Tim Meadows, Colin Quinn, June Squibb, Shaquille O’Neal, Karan Brar, Noah Schnapp (Stranger Things), Mikey Day, Melissa Villaseñor, Kym Whitley, Lavell Crawford, Betsy Sodaro, George Wallace, and Blake Clark.

In the film, Good-natured but eccentric community volunteer Hubie Dubois (Sandler) finds himself at the center of a real murder case on Halloween night. Despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts (and its legendary Halloween celebration), Hubie is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.

Hubie was filmed on location in and around Salem.

Steve Brill (Little NickyMr. DeedsThe Do-Over, Sandy Wexler) directed from a screenplay by Sandler and Tim Herlihy for the Happy Madison and Netflix.

A recently launched fan petition on Change.org urges Netflix to consider producing a sequel to what many agree (myself included) is a new family-friendly Halloween staple for all ages. You can sign the petition here.

Hubie Halloween is streaming now on Netflix.
