    Except 2016, 2017, and (to a lesser extent) 2018 all featured a threat from a hurricane and it didn’t impact overall numbers.

    Candyman, Stranger things, and.... Classic Monsters? That'd be a lineup that could sell regardless of what the other houses are.

    Yeah, I'm optimistic about baby steps - I know we won't see a Reflections of Fear-like event anytime soon.

    I seriously would not expect Stranger Things to be back.

    Hard to say; we never know prices until June and how big the price jumps will be, or if any ticket options can change. Best bet is to plan using 29's prices, and just add an extra $50 of savings for each kind of ticket you were anticipating on buying.

    Probably not. Won't be season 4 since they just finished writing the first episode and I doubt they do a "Best of" since this year featured 2 of the 3 seasons already.

    Candyman, a tentpole IP from a third party (IT, NOES - direct adaptation of the original film, Scream), and maybe a house with a few easy-to-get IPs a la The Director/The Usher?

    I assume due to low GSATs? Sorry to beat a dead horse with bringing up ST. I enjoyed the house, but was my least favorite of the 5 I did so I could see that but even without the show not being on the stars of the show all are still everywhere so its not like its dead. Either way though, id be shocked if Candyman isnt one of the few IPs being used.

    Also, because I HOPE that A&D and marketing would've learned their lesson from how over people were with TWD and that they don't want a compilation house of stuff they've already seen (s4 won't be out in time).

    No, I think it has more to do with not having any more content to adapt. Same thing happened with AHS after 2 years.

    Any thoughts on any of the Shudder originals? They’re not affiliated with Disney/Fox and don’t have much in the way of rights issues as far as I can tell.

    Unless Universal is worried about pushing away Netflix it seems like a natural fit to me.

    And as @SeventyOne brings up this might be a leading indicator of a recession with less discretionary spending.

    I do like the idea of HHN becoming a "Big 3/Big 4" when it comes to IPs. The general public can be drawn in from that, and of course the die-hards will be all for more originals.

    As long as we have another lagoon show... *fingers crossed*

    I could see them working with Shudder on something. The problem with a lot of the "Shudder Originals" is that, they don't really own all of rights. To the best of my knowledge, they basically just buy the distribution rights to them.

    That's different for things like Creepshow and the Joe Bob Briggs content, of course.

    Hopefully by spending less on IP rights, it'll mean they are spending more money where it's needed elsewhere around the event...

    Bumping this again because of the trailer’s release, and I’m standing by my point even more so. Making this into a house would be kinda tasteless.

    And the increased effort and attention that it takes to work with a third party.

    I really do hope we really see a shift to more original content over IPs. Don't get me wrong, IPs have a place at the event, they always have. But I hope to see better theming and original content with the only 2 or 3 IPs. And of course less IPs may mean less money spent on aquiring them and as mentioned already, hopefully means more money into making everything that matters, better.

    I will say even if Stranger Things was at the bottom of the GSAT scores what sold the most tickets, merchandise, and hotel rooms.. Stranger Things 100%.
