Just in Time for St. Patrick's Day, the Original 'Leprechaun' Returns

Everyone's favourite St. Patrick's Day themed horror franchise is back!

Leprechaun Returns, the latest instalment in the fan-favourite Leprechaun franchise, is coming to the SYFY network in March 2019.

Steven Kostanski (The Void) directs from a script by Suzanne Keilly (Ash vs Evil Dead).

The cast is led by Taylor Spreitler (Kevin Can Wait) as Lila, Pepi Sonuga (Ash vs Evil Dead) as Katie, Sai Bennett (Lake Placid: Legacy) as Rose, and Linden Porco as the leprechaun (replacing longtime star Warwick Davis).

The film will also bring back a co-star from the original film in Mark Holton, who will reprise his role as Ozzie, the group’s goofball friend almost killed by the leprechaun all those years ago. Additional co-stars include Emily Reid as Meredith, Oliver Llewellyn-Jenkins as Matt, and Ben McGregor as Andy.

Leprechaun Returns picks up 25 years after the events of the original 1993 movie, which found a maniacal leprechaun doing whatever it takes (including committing gruesome murder) to track down his stolen pot of gold.

Leprechaun Returns is produced by Blue Ice Pictures: Lance Samuels and Daniel Iron, Producers; Stephen Raglow, Co Producer; Adam Friedlander, Out of Africa Producer; and Darren Cameron, Line Producer.
