Ernie Hudson Confirms Return as Original Ghostbuster in Upcoming ‘Firehouse’ Sequel to ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’

Last month, the highly-anticipated news was announced that Paul Rudd and Carrie Coon would reprise their roles in the upcoming Ghostbusters film, directed by Gil Kenan. Fans were also thrilled to learn that Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard had also confirmed their participation in the sequel.

While the initial announcements did not include the name of one iconic cast member, original Ghostbuster star Ernie Hudson, the actor previously revealed to ComicBook.com that he had read a draft of the script and was “very happy with it,” but a deal had not been secured at that time.

However, during a recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Hudson confirmed his involvement in the sequel stating “There will be another Ghostbusters that I can definitely say,” and expressing his gratitude to fans for their continued support of the franchise.

Hudson’s character, Winston, is said to have made a fortune in the previous installment, Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Fans are now speculating that his character may play a financial backer in the upcoming film. Hudson also hinted at a greater level of freedom for Winston in the next chapter, stating that “Winston… is now a billionaire.”

Filming for the sequel, currently codenamed “Firehouse,” is set to commence in the United Kingdom this March, with a release date of December 20th, 2023.
