Netflix’s Fear Street has given horror fans a jolt of nostalgia, adapting R.L. Stine’s book series that began in 1989.
Directed by Leigh Janiak, Fear Street spread the story of the Shadyside curse and witch Sarah Fier across three films set in different time periods: 1994, 1978 and 1666.
The three-part film series recently ended with 1666, capping off what was intended to be a neat trilogy. However, a post-credits scene seems to have teased the possibility of more to come.
Fear Street: Part 3 – 1666 End Credits Scene
Just when we thought it was all over, 1666 dropped a Marvel-like end credits scene to conclude the trilogy with more suspense.
After the credits had rolled, the camera moved along the grounds of Shadyside and ended up back underneath the mall where the ritual altar was.
The altar and the names on the wall had been removed, and the heart returned to Hell, but the Goodes book of spells still remained on the floor next to a police tag with the number ’13’.
A few flies appeared next to the book, followed by a hand which reached out to grab the book before the screen cut to black.
Will There Be a Fear Street Part 4?
The 1666 end credits scene heavily suggests that there will be more to come although Netflix has yet to announce concrete plans for more.
However, speaking to Digital Spy, Fear Street director Leigh Janiak revealed that discussions had taken place about potentially creating an MCU-style horror universe under the Fear Street name.
As the end credits scene of Part 3 left us asking who took the book of spells, that would make the perfect starting point for a new raft of films.
R.L. Stine has a healthy collection of Fear Street stories to adapt, which could turn the live-action Fear Street into a modern-day Goosebumps-style anthology of films.
If we read into the ’13’ police tag sitting next to the book of spells, we could translate that as a hint to the next film’s narrative.
Stine’s Fear Street #13 is titled “The Secret Bedroom’, following Lea Carson and her family when they move into a creepy house on Fear Street. The attic of the house has been locked for a hundred years after a murder took place, but could this story tie in with the stolen book of spells?
