Is Josh Hutcherson Returning For ‘Five Night’s at Freddy’s 2’?

The nighttime security guard at the family pizza establishment hasn’t been confirmed for the sequel — but Josh has expressed his interest in coming back.

“We hoped it would connect with audiences. But I don’t think that anybody, even on our side of things, expected it to really connect the way that it did,” the Hunger Games actor told Variety in January 2024. “I’m dying to get back on set. Emma Tammi, our director, was fantastic, and it was such a fun world to play in. I’m excited to see what they are doing next.”

While it’s up in the air if Josh will be returning, it’s been confirmed that Matthew Lillard, who played the villain in the first film, has signed on for three movies with the franchise.

“I know they’re in the process right now of nailing down the story, and they want to get going as soon as possible,” he revealed to Variety earlier this year. “Obviously, the fans are amazing and die hard. For me to be a part of it was was so cool and phenomenal.”
