There is no news on the plot as of now, but the Hocus Pocus ended with the witch sisters finally dying and Thackery Binx uniting with her sister’s soul Emily and walking to Heaven and Max, Dana and Allison bidding an emotional farewell to both. On the other hand, the whole of Salem is out of the spell of the witches welcoming a new day. Everything ended on a good note except one thing. Though the sisters are gone but not the spellbook. In the end, we saw the spellbook winking, which does mean that there is a possibility of the Sanderson sisters resurrecting again. We may get to see a new way of the witch sisters’ revival in the sequel.
