SequelsEdit

The sequel October Moon 2: November Son premiered in a limited theatrical run on July 10, 2008.[3] The entire original cast returned, plus new cast members Debbie Rochon, Robyn Griggs and recording artist Sacha Sacket. The story followed a new mysterious young gay man (Sacket) who seems to bring danger into the lives of the surviving characters from the original film.[2] October Moon 2 was released to DVD on April 14, 2009 by Ariztical Entertainment under the title November Son. Financial disputes between Ariztical and production company B+Boy Productions, LLC. returned the rights to B+Boy, who licensed the title to Tempe Entertainment for re-release on February 15, 2011 under its original title October Moon 2: November Son with original artwork by Paul Girard.

A third film in the trilogy was planned,[2] but as of 2019 had still not been officially announced.
