There’s really no other choice for binge-watching this coming weekend – it’s got to be the Leprechaun series starring Warwick Davis. So all week, we’ve been counting down the filming o’ the green, with this little surprise waiting for the end. SyFy will be making an all-knew feature entitled Leprechaun Returns for release in 2019!

The Syfy channel announced that they are gearing up for the 2019 film, Leprechaun Returns, a new installment in the original Leprechaun series. The new film will be directed by Steven Kostanski, best known for his work on The Void!
Although Warwick Davis is not returning for the new film, the teaser suggests that care was taken in creating the character for the new film (and in casting Linden Porco) in such a way that continuity is continued. The new film is so interested in continuity that it is bringing back Mark Holton to reprise his role as Ozzie, the group’s goofball friend almost killed by the leprechaun in the first film of the series.
SyFy tells us that the new “film picks up 25 years after the events of the 1993 original, which found a maniacal Leprechaun doing whatever it takes (including committing gruesome murder) to track down his stolen pot of gold.” That sounds magically familiar! This part is new: Lubdan the leprechaun will be revived when a group of sorority girls tear down a cabin to build a new sorority house. The script is being written by Suzanne Keilly who is best known for Ash vs Evil Dead.
Additional cast announced includes: Taylor Spreitler (Kevin Can Wait), Pepi Sonuga (Ash vs Evil Dead), Sai Bennett (Lake Placid: Legacy), Emily Reid, Oliver Llewellyn-Jenkins, and Ben McGregor. Leprechaun Returns, a Syfy Exclusive, is aet for a March 2019 premiere.
Here’s the super short – but super good – teaser for Leprechaun Returns:
