Although Zombies 3 will soon be available on Disney+, we regret to inform fans that this will be the last instalment in the series.
The star-crossed zombie/cheerleader duo Zed and Addison from Seabrook will return in the threequel with Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim. Paul Hoen, who directed the first film, as well as David Light and Joseph Raso, who wrote it, are all back on board this time.
The cheerleaders, zombies, and werewolves of Seabrook will have to work together to face a threat of galactic proportions that could change them forever as it picks up where Zombies 2 left off.
Here is all the information you need to know about Zombies 3 to whet your appetite for its upcoming release.
Zombies 3 release date: When is Zombies 3 being released on Disney Plus?
In contrast to the previous films, Zombies 3 will have its global debut on July 15, 2022, only on Disney+.
On Friday, August 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the threequel will then make its Disney Channel debut in the US with a special encore premiere that includes a brand-new musical number called “the lost song” and more bonus material.
The two films that came before it were both released in July, but they debuted on the Disney Channel around Valentine’s Day in February 2018 and 2020, respectively.
Zombies 3 trailer: Watch the Zombies 3 trailer here!
Disney published the entire trailer for Zombies 3 in June 2022, following the publication of a 15-second teaser in October 2021.
It closes with the cliffhanger of Addison being kidnapped in addition to hinting at the impending clash between Seabrook’s best and some aliens. Could this spell Zeddison’s demise? For sure not.
Zombies 3 plot: How does Zombies 2 ending set it up?
Zed stole a pendant that Addison believed would reveal her actual identity as a werewolf, casting doubt on their budding romance as Seabrook High’s Prawn approached.
But since this is a Disney film, everything turned out alright in the end after Zed apologised and realised he had been a touch rude to the werewolves. The zombies invade the Prawn while working with the werewolves, and Zed apologises to Addison.
“Zed responds, “You’re a leader, Addison. I thought everything would make sense if I were a werewolf, but I’m not, and I don’t even know if I’m a cheerleader. You reunite individuals.”
They kiss and reconcile after that. Awww.
Zombies 2 doesn’t end there, though, as later that evening a weird meteorite crashes in Seabrook, setting off Addison’s radio and waking her up. She remarks, “Weird,” as her hair begins to shine intensely blue.
Hold on, is it possible that Addison is an alien? The third film’s official synopsis says that there will be an alien twist when Zed and Addison start their senior year at Seabrook High.
“Addison is preparing for Seabrook’s first international cheer-off competition, while Zed is awaiting a sports scholarship that will make him the first Zombie to attend college,” it adds.
Then unexpectedly, alien creatures start to show up in Seabrook, igniting conflict that is not amicable.
Eight new musical pieces, including the opening song “Alien Invasion,” new songs for Zed and Addison (including a third version of “Someday,” and “Come On Out,” have been announced for the third film.
It was “very emotional” for Donnelly to record the new version of “Someday.” She admitted to People, “In the original ‘Someday,’ I sound so young because I was 16.”
“So I have something that like a time capsule of our annual growth. I was in tears all day because I had my part to film on the final day of filming.”
The movie’s Disney+ launch is July 15, the same day the downloadable soundtrack will be made available. If you can’t wait that long, listen to the movie’s opening song, “Alien Invasion,” below:
Disney has confirmed an animated series called Zombies: The Re-Animated Series that “invites fans into the daily lives of Zed, Addison, Eliza, Willa and the full Seabrook crew,” even if this may be the final instalment in the movie series.
The new series has not yet been given a release date, though.

Zombies 3 cast: Who’s coming back for Zombies 3?
Milo Manheim and Meg Donnelly, who play Zed and Addison, are both back for the third instalment of the Zombies film series.
The movie is “so different” from anything they’ve done before, according to Donnelly, who also teased that “everything is simply bigger, better, and more mature,” including the musical numbers, in a June 2022 interview with People.
Also making a comeback are Trevor Tordjman as Bucky, Kylee Russell as Eliza, Chandler Kinney as Willa, Kingston Foster as Zoey, Carla Jeffery as Bree, Ariel Martin as Wynter, and Pearce Joza as Wyatt.
Terry Hu as A-spen, Matt Cornett as A-lan, Kyra Tantao as A-li, and James Godfrey as Bonzo are among the newcomers.
Though RuPaul, who is touted as “a passive-aggressive UFO that transports the aliens to Earth in the new movie,” is the truly major star making their Zombies debut. Walk into space?
While Zombies and Zombies 2 are now available to stream on Disney+, Zombies 3 will be published on that platform on July 15.
