The Conjuring TV series release date speculation, cast, plot, and news

After eight movies, The Conjuring TV series is bringing this horror movie world to the small screen. Here's what we know about the release date and more.

What is The Conjuring TV series release date? The paranormal investigations of Ed and Lorraine Warren have become a key component of modern horror cinema, with the duo’s exploits in the real world providing the inspiration for James Wan’s chilling spook-fest The Conjuring. There have since been sequels, spin-offs, and now a TV series is on the way.

The Conjuring 3 hit cinemas in 2021, serving as the eighth feature in the rapidly expanding world of The Conjuring movies. We’ve heard word about The Conjuring 4 moving ahead, but it sounds like the small screen is the next frontier for this universe. Not content with simply making some of the best horror movies in years, James Wan and Peter Safran have television in their crosshairs.

We’ve had a look ahead to see what we can find out about The Conjuring TV series release date, as well as what the plot of the latest entry in one of the best horror series in cinema could be and whether any of The Conjuring cast will be back to battle yet more ghostly beasties.

The Conjuring TV series release date speculation

The Conjuring TV series will likely not be released until 2025 or 2026, given that there have been no developments since its announcement. There’s no official date yet.

We know that Warner Bros. and Max are developing a series, but we aren’t sure when it will make it to screens. It has been a few of years since The Conjuring 3, and the franchise is seldom away for long (The Nun 2 release date was in 2023).

It’s possible that a series could be turned around for a 2025 debut but it seems more likely that this project will take until at least 2026, or happen after The Conjuring 4 release date.

Who’s in The Conjuring TV series cast?

We don’t have any confirmed information about The Conjuring TV series cast, but we don’t think it’ll star Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga).

It’s difficult to imagine anyone else but Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren leading a Conjuring show, however, the likes of The Nun 2 cast and some of the Annabelle movies have shown that The Conjuring doesn’t always need to feature the Warrens.

We’d expect a handful of cameos, though, just to make it clear that this is linked to the best movies in the series – and their massive box-office success, of course.

What is The Conjuring TV series about?

The Conjuring TV series will “continue the story established in the feature films.” We imagine it will delve into more historical paranormal investigations and universe lore but there’s no official synopsis yet.

During the announcement, it was stated that the series will “continue the story established in the feature films.” The Warrens spent decades investigating the most dramatic claims of hauntings, demons, and possessions. Some of their most famous stories have already been depicted in The Conjuring movies, but those archives are full of complex and intriguing tales. That being said, our gut feeling is that the series will star different leading actors, so it could follow a made-up investigation.

There are a number of directions a TV series could take. It could provide an opportunity to use an anthology format, with each episode focusing on a completely different story. Alternatively, the show could offer more time to explore a particularly detailed investigation in full, breaking free of a two-hour movie structure.

Is there a The Conjuring TV series trailer?

They haven’t started filming The Conjuring TV series just yet, so we’ll be without a trailer until the end of 2024 at the absolute minimum.

In the meantime, there are plenty of featurettes on Warner Bros.’s official YouTube channel that might interest you.

Where can I watch The Conjuring TV series?

You can’t watch The Conjuring TV series just yet, but it will eventually be available to stream on Max.

That’s also where you’ll find the movies. Considering how many franchises are spread across platforms these days, it’s good to have them all in one place.

How many episodes are in The Conjuring TV series?

We don’t yet know how many episodes are in The Conjuring TV series, but our best guess is 6-10 episodes.

Depending on things like the premise, cast, and budget, the episode count could range anywhere from 6-10 episodes, and we think that is the likely gamut. If Wilson and Farmiga star, we would bet on a lower number.

The show is still in development, but we’ll update this guide when we have more information on what could be one of the best TV series to settle down with on a dark night when it drops with everything else new on Max.
