‘MaXXXine’ Director Teases More Sequels Beyond Trilogy

Fans eagerly awaiting the third instalment of Ti West’s X trilogy, MaXXXine, have more to look forward to. Director Ti West recently shared exciting updates on the movie and hinted at a potential sequel, stirring anticipation.

In a revealing chat with What’s Under the Bed on YouTube, West discussed MaXXXine’s post-production progress. He assured viewers, “It’s coming along. I’m almost done editing it,” signalling a promising update for the film’s slated release later this year. This news keeps hopes high for maintaining the release schedule.

West’s trilogy began with X in 2022, introducing Mia Goth’s character, Maxine, as a new horror icon. Following the success of X, which also starred Jenna Ortega and Kid Cudi, West and Goth collaborated on Pearl, a prequel offering backstory to one of X‘s pivotal characters, Maxine Minx/Pearl. MaXXXine promises to continue this gripping narrative, previously thought to be the trilogy’s conclusion.

However, West teased the possibility of extending Maxine’s story beyond MaXXXine. With a careful yet open-ended response about a fourth movie, West shared, “Maybe. I don’t know. There is this one weird idea that I have,” leaving room for further developments based on the upcoming film’s reception. The full quote is as follows:

There is this one weird idea that I have that is kind of… if I explained it, it would make sense. But we’ll see what happens. Let’s get this movie done first, see if people like it. Then we’ll go from there.”


MaXXXine will delve deeper into Maxine’s journey, as she moves to Los Angeles with dreams of stardom. Goth has hinted at this being their best work in the franchise, amplifying the intrigue surrounding the sequel. The film’s cast includes notable names such as Elizabeth Debicki, Lily Collins, Halsey, and Kevin Bacon.

West’s cautious approach to revealing too much ensures that fans remain on the edge of their seats, eager for the twists and turns of Maxine’s evolution. With its potential release in 2024, MaXXXine is one of the most anticipated horror sequels, promising a mix of suspense, emotion, and terror. As West finalises the film, the potential for a fourth instalment keeps the audience guessing and excited about the future of this beloved horror saga.
