Alex Winter, renowned for his portrayal of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. in the popular Bill & Ted series, has teased the possibility of a fourth film in the franchise. During a recent interview on The Sarah O’Connell Show, he revealed that early-stage development for a fourth installment is underway, and initial responses from all involved parties have been positive.

Eagerly Awaiting a Fourth Installment

While Winter did not explicitly name the screenwriters, it is widely speculated that he is referring to Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. The duo previously wrote the scripts for the other movies in the franchise, contributing their exceptional storytelling abilities to the series that first premiered in 1989 with Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. The success of the film led to a sequel, an animated television series, and a live-action TV series, firmly establishing its place in pop culture.

A Long-Awaited Comeback

After a long break, the beloved characters returned to the franchise in the 2020 film, Bill & Ted Face the Music. Keanu Reeves reprised his role as Ted “Theodore” Logan, reuniting with Winter to bring back the iconic duo. Both actors have remained active in the industry, with Reeves gaining recognition for his work in action films and voice acting, while Winter has made a name for himself as a director of documentaries and films.

Maintaining Authenticity

During the interview, Winter emphasized the genuine affection and interest that drives the creation of the Bill & Ted movies. He revealed that the team has a “really good and obvious idea” for the fourth film. However, he also stressed the importance of taking the necessary time and care to craft a movie that pays homage to the franchise’s legacy. He assured fans that they would only proceed with the project if they were confident in its quality. Currently, fans can stream the first two movies of the series on Max.
