Following last week's (excellent!) news that Bill & Ted 3 is officially going ahead, it has today been confirmed that the fan-favourite Reaper will return for the third installment. 

The official Bill & Ted 3 Twitter account confirmed that US actor William Sadler will reprise the character who appeared in the 1991 sequel, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

Filming is expected to commence soon with the release scheduled for August 2020.

Stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter announced the news in a video last week. 

“It is all because of you guys, so we owe you a huge debt of gratitude and we wanted to say thank you,” Winter said.
