Leigh-Janiak, who directed and co-wrote the films, said there’s scope to turn the films into a horror version of MCU.

She said to Collider they do “have ideas” for how the trilogy can continue beyond the third film.

She also said to Indie Wire: “One of the things that I talked about before I was hired was that we have a potential here to create a horror Marvel, where you can have slasher killers from lots of different eras.

"You have the canon of our main mythology that's built around the fact that the devil lives in Shadyside, so there's also room for everything else... my hope is that audiences like it enough that we can start building out [more], we can think about what another trilogy would be, what standalones would be, what TV would be.

"I don't even think about it like TV or movies exactly anymore. That's the great thing about Netflix and about what Fear Street is, which is kind of a hybrid new thing. I'm excited about the possibility of what else can happen."

Originally, the Fear Street Trilogy was set for a June 2020 release in cinemas, however Netflix bought the films after their release was delayed by the pandemic.

Netflix hasn’t confirmed plans for a fourth movie or second trilogy, but it looks like there’s definite scope for a future.
