    While it is confirmed that Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd will be returning it remains to be seen if Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will also reprise their roles

    Murray had left the franchise after the failure of Ghostbuster's two, despite the best efforts of the original director of the franchise Ivan Reitman to make the third movie, it would be stuck in development hell till 2016.

    Bill Murphy avoided reprising his role citing creative differences until his return in Afterlife.

    “the character of Winston Zeddemore and Zeddemore Industries figure strongly into the future of Ghostbusters.”

    Despite its issues Ghostbusters: Afterlife was embraced by fans and managed to gross over 200 million dollars worldwide.

    Sony is also planning on making an animated series headed by Chris Prynoski and Jennifer Kluska which is set to release next year.
