The news was first reported by Collider and then confirmed by Variety. Currently, none of the original stars are attached to return, although, they do hope to bring be the three original Sanderson sisters, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy, back for some more crazy fun.
This isn't the first time Hocus Pocus fans got to see what happened next to the Sanderson sisters in Salem, Massachusetts. A sequel YA book was released last year that followed Max and Allison's daughter 25 years later as she faces the Sanderson sisters.
