This R.L. Stine vision will continue.
Netflix aired a trilogy based on Stine’s Fear Street YA novels back in 2021, and last year, it was reported a fourth film was on the drawing board. This week, that next offering was confirmed.
Netflix head honcho Scott Stuber told Collider that, with more than 50 books in Stine’s Fear Street series, there’s plenty of material to draw on. “Obviously, there’s a lot of books,” Stuber said. “And there’s one standalone film we’re working on right now.”
Stuber added that the writers are “trying to get the script right, but I like it very much, and so does the team. I feel if we can get that script right, it would be a great extension of the franchise.”
Stuber has not yet elaborated on who is handling the script or who is part of the team, but it had been rumored a year ago that filmmaker Chloe Okuno (Watcher) would direct the film.
All that’s known at this point is that Fear Street 4 will continue the storyline from the original Netflix trilogy directed by Leigh Janiak. Those films contain separate–but connected–stories that follow groups of teenagers who try to break a long-standing curse in their town. Each film is set during a different year–1994, 1978 and 1666.
