After three weekly installs filled with terrifying twists and turns, the long-awaited Fear Street event has come to a lurid and satisfying finale, but is it really the end? With every wildly successful Netflix project, we wonder: will there be a sequel? There is no official green light for a follow-up film yet, but the chances of one seem as strong as the 300-year-old Shadyside curse.
How Fear Street Ends Part 3: 1666
Let’s first see how the trilogy ends on a note that leaves the door open for a sequel. Simply put, Deena has a vision as Sarah Fier and discovers what has been afflicting Shadyside for three centuries: the Goode family makes a deal with the devil and lets serial killers loose since 1666. After catching the killers From Shadyside at the mall, Deena kills Nick by stabbing him in the eye and breaks the curse, or so we think anyway. The trilogy ends with a brighter future for Shadyside, with Nick becoming the prime suspect in the serial killer case.
That said, the credits certainly leave room for interpretation. In the middle of the credits, we see a mysterious hand searching for Solomon Goode’s spell book at the crime scene. Could it be a detective working on the case? Sure. But it could be someone else in the Goode family, perhaps Mayor Will Goode, with more sinister occult plans in mind. He shouted something has taught us, is that everyone is suspicious, even those who seem innocent. Who knows, the hand may even belong to Ziggy, Deena, or the cute girl who signs the cast of Josh. There’s no question that we could get a sequel trilogy based on this short clip alone.
What the cast and crew have to say about a follow-up movie
Based on some interviews with the cast and crew, a follow-up movie is definitely a possibility. Director Leigh Janiak said in an interview with Collider that she and her team “have ideas” about future movies. Furthermore, Kiana Madeira, who plays Deena, also said in an interview with Newsweek, “I would love to see more Fear Street movies. I feel like there are so many things that can be done in this universe, or outside of Shadyside and the Fear Street universe. I think there are over 50 Fear Street books, so there is a lot of room for development on the screen. And I would absolutely love to do more. ”While the trilogy itself is not literally based on the original RL Stine series, it certainly draws inspiration from it and would provide a host of new plot ideas when the time comes for a sequel.
