Celeste O’Connor expected to return for Ghostbusters sequel

With filming of the next Ghostbusters set to kick off next week in the United Kingdom, it appears we’ve got the likely confirmation that Afterlife star Celeste O’Connor will reprise their role as Lucky in the upcoming sequel.

While not entirely hard evidence, over the last few days, O’Connor has made it apparent that they’re currently in the UK, uploading a handful of photos to Instagram stories, showcasing location spots, including the below, of the Row Barge Inn, located in the town of Henley on Thame within Oxfordshire, England.

At this time, Columbia Pictures Ghost Corps have yet to confirm O’Connor’s return. However, an update is expected within the coming days, with Production Weekly having the sequel pegged to begin filming on March 20th at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.

In Afterlife, O’Connor played Lucky Domingo, a friend of Trevor Spengler (Finn Wolfhard) that appeared eager to leave Summerville, Oklahoma. With the upcoming sequel, given the codename of Firehouse, returning the franchise back to New York City and carrying on the Spengler family story, Lucky’s return is expected, not only imperative to Trevor but the location change also serving as a payoff for the character, who in Afterlife, was questioned if they’d ever leave the fictitious small town.

Since being announced last June, Afterlife stars Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and Mckenna Grace have all been confirmed to reprise their roles in the upcoming sequel. Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson are expected to reprise their roles, with Hudson, in an interview with Looper, saying, “Everybody’s back. It’s a great script and a lot of fun.”

Ghostbusters: Firehouse is slated to arrive in theaters on December 20th, 2023. Keep checking Ghostbusters News and subscribe to our YouTube channel for future updates and exclusive coverage.
