Collegian Tree Gelbman wakes up in horror to learn that she's stuck in a parallel universe. Her boyfriend Carter is now with someone else, and her friends and fellow students seem to be completely different versions of themselves. When Tree discovers that Carter's roommate has been altering time, she finds herself once again the target of a masked killer. When the psychopath starts to go after her inner circle, Tree soon realizes that she must die over and over again to save everyone.
Jessica Rothe leads the returning cast of HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U, the follow-up to Blumhouse’s (Split, Get Out, The Purge series) surprise 2017 smash hit of riveting, repeating twists and comic turns. This time, our hero Tree Gelbman (Rothe) discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead. Jason Blum once again produces and Christopher Landon returns to write and direct this next chapter, while Happy Death Day executive producers Angela Mancuso and John Baldecchi are newly joined by EP Samson Mucke (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse).
“Blumhouse and Universal have released the first Happy Death Day 2U poster. For those who didn’t see the original Happy Death Day, the story followed a college student Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) who was trapped in a Groundhog Day-like scenario where she keeps reliving the last day of her life over and over again until she finds the killer. But it looks like Tree won’t have much time to enjoy her victory as she’ll be returning for the sequel...
"Universal Studios and Blumhouse have finally set a Happy Death Day 2 release date, also unveiling the title for the horror sequel. The follow-up to the inventive 2017 film is officially called Happy Death Day 2U and will hit theaters on February 14, 2019. Yes indeed, the Happy Death Day sequel is a date movie! The film will be squaring off directly against 20th Century Fox’s new X-Men movie Dark Phoenix as well as the Warner Bros. comedy Isn’t It Romantic on Valentine’s weekend, so it’s a bit of a competitive debut date. Christopher Landon returned to direct Happy Death Day 2, which also brings back Jessica Rothe in the lead role as a college student who gets murdered, only to find herself trapped in a Groundhog Day-like scenario where she keeps reliving the last day of her life over and over again until she finds the killer.

This has naturally led to speculation among those same fans, which director James Wan has apparently had enough of. The “Saw” and “The Conjuring” filmmaker took to Twitter to dispel any rumors about the delay, explaining that the problem is simple: “It’s me.”
