It has been more than a year since Netflix adapted R.L. Stine’s classic YA horror novel series Fear Street into a three-week movie trilogy event, and given its success, fans are still wondering if the streamer is planning to expand the teen horror franchise. According to Bloody Disgusting, Netflix is indeed working on producing more Fear Street movies, with the outlet’s sources confirming that the streamer is currently “very deep into development.”
Further details about the potential sequels are still being kept under wraps. It’s also still unclear if director Leigh Janiak is involved in the development process. Last year, in a previous interview, Janiak believes that the Fear Street trilogy does have the potential to give Netflix its own “MCU-style horror universe.”

Based on R.L. Stine’s best-selling horror series, the Fear Street trilogy covers three different time periods of Shadyside: 1994, 1978, and 1666. It follows Shadyside’s sinister history through a nightmare 300 years in the making. In 1994, a group of teenagers discovers that the terrifying events that have haunted their town for generations may all be connected – and that they may be the next targets.
The trilogy stars Kiana Madeira, Olivia Scott Welch, Benjamin Flores Jr., Julia Rehwald, Fred Hechinger, Ashley Zukerman, Gillian Jacobs, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Elizabeth Scopel, Jordana Spiro, Jordyn Dinatale, Sadie Sink, Emily Rudd, Ryan Simpkins, Mccabe Slye, Ted Sutherland, and Maya Hawke.
