Recently, we got a lot of information about Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire. Sony Pictures revealed the Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel’s name, trailer, and synopsis. Take a look.

The synopsis for the movie further shares:

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.

Hang on tight, everyone, it’s about to be a frosty ride.


Jason Reitman will not return to the director’s chair for Frozen Empire. His co-writer on the first film, Gil Kenan, will instead take over. Reitman and Kenan once again penned the script for the movie together.
