Leatherface survived his apparent offscreen death at the end of the second film.
Next Generation was shot on location in rural areas outside of Austin, Texas in the summer of 1994. The film was screened as The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 1995 before being shelved by Columbia Pictures. In May 1996, four teenagers—Jenny, Sean, Heather, and Barry—leave their senior prom after Heather and Barry get into an argument. They are forced to take a detour off the main highway onto a wooded backroad.
Heather becomes distracted when she thinks she sees something in the woods, and accidentally crashes into an oncoming vehicle. The other driver exits his car and collapses. Jenny, Barry, and Heather stumble upon a rural real estate office occupied by a tawdry woman named Darla, who calls her tow trucker boyfriend Vilmer to the scene while the three rest. Vilmer soon arrives at the accident, where he breaks the injured motorist’s neck before chasing after Sean with his truck and running him over.
