The final shocker in the credits of Fear Street Part 3: 1666 was the widow’s book of spells being snatched away by someone. Shadyside may not be free just yet because the book was likely grabbed by someone who knew what it could do, namely, make a bargain with the Devil to get whatever you want. For fans, the credits scene isn’t just a fun beat; there are “ideas” for how Fear Street may continue after this trilogy.
That’s according to Leigh Janiak, the director and co-writer of all three films. Given the wealth of material in RL Stine’s books and the possibility of branching out from the trilogy’s initial plot, one possibility is for Janiak to realize his goal of turning the series into a horror-themed version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“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,” she told IndieWire. “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.
I think that I hope that audiences like it enough that we can start building out [more], we can think about what another trilogy would be, what standalone would be, what TV would be. “I don’t even think about it like TV or movies 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.”
Each part of the trilogy has been Netflix’s most-watched movie globally on the weekend of its release, so it looks from the outside as though Fear Street has been a hit for the streaming service. In order to know how well the trilogy did, we’ll have to wait for Netflix to provide official numbers. This is especially true if Netflix waits to see if anyone binge-watched the trilogy once all three films were published rather than week-by-week.
As a result, Netflix has yet to officially acknowledge the existence of Fear Street Part 4, but we may hypothesize about what it would look like if it did.
Fear Street 4 Release Date
All three films of the original trilogy were shot back-to-back beginning in March of 2019 in preparation for a June 2020 theatrical release. When the films were taken from theatres due to the current state of the world, Netflix stepped in and purchased the trilogy. The final installments of the trilogy were finally released roughly a year after they were initially scheduled to be.
No one knows when we’ll get to see the fourth film unless it was secretly filmed in advance, and even that seems like a short time to wait. If they want to keep the summer release timetable, July 2023 looks like a safe bet. Even if Fear Street goes the TV series route, production times will be affected, and we may have to wait a little longer for the next installment.
Fear Street 4 Cast
Assuming that the third film’s cliffhanger is carried forward, only a small number of characters will return in Fear Street 4. Aside from Deena (Kiana Madeira) and Sam (Olivia Scott Welch), the primary characters that are still alive at the end of Part 3 are Mr. Lane, Ziggy, Josh (Benjamin Flores Jr), Martin, and Mrs. Lane (Darrell Britt-Gibson) (Jordana Spiro).
However, the original trilogy’s conclusion, in which they are all entangled in yet another curse plaguing Shadyside, could be too familiar for comfort. We believe that a new Fear Street film (or TV show) will take place in a different era, and Janiak has already begun thinking about this possibility. The actress told IndieWire,
“I started getting psyched about a ’50s slasher movie, which I haven’t really seen” As a horror enthusiast, “It’s simply fun to think about how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go.”We saw in Part 3 that the trilogy went back to 1666, so it’s possible that characters from that time period could make an appearance in Part 4.
Fear Street 4 Trailer
Until Netflix confirms it, there’s no footage because it hasn’t been filmed yet. Instead, you’ll have to go back and watch the entire trilogy again.
