Charles Chiodo, co-writer of 1988's horror-comedy Killer Klowns from Outer Space, has recently announced that there probably never will be a sequel. Although the film has a huge fan-base, MGM has decided that there's not enough of a "fan interest" to fund the costs of a sequel. So, the rumors flying around about there being a sequel in 2016 have officially been debunked.
But, Chiodo did say that he and his brothers would settle for a television series of Killer Klowns, instead of a sequel. However, there's been nothing official announced yet. So, with all the horror shows surfacing as of late, will we eventually see the Killer Klowns back, and on the small screen? We can only hope, right? If the show doesn't happen, Chiodo said that he and his brothers would be interested in "making a totally original scary clown movie, which would have nothing to do with the film we all know and love."
As it stands now, it's all just a lot of talk and hope. But, at the very least, we'll get a new film full of scary clowns from the minds behind Killer Klowns from Outer Space. And if we're really lucky, we'll see the Killer Klowns popping up on a weekly basis in the form of a television series!
