As discussed previously, while we avoid it whenever possible, this year (5784 / 2024) most Ashkenazim will read the actual Haftarah for Kedoshim: Yechezkel Ch. 22, "Inform the bloody city of all its abominations!"

The answer there said the last time it was read was 5757 (1997); after this year, what's the next time it will be read? (Better yet, where's a good place to look up stuff like this?)

    The best place to check historical or future year configurations is the table of years in the Tur OC 428

This haftarah is only read in year type זח"ג, which next occurs in 5801 (2041).

(The linked Hebrew Wikipedia page is as good a place as any to look this kind of stat up, I guess.)
