Netflix released one Fear Street movie a week for three weeks in 2021. The trilogy was inspired by R. L. Stine’s Fear Street: 1994, Fear Street: 1978, and Fear Street: 1666, but were not based on any specific books written by Stine.
Netflix confirmed back in November that a standalone Fear Street film was in the works, and that this time, the film will be based on a specific book.
“Obviously, there’s a lot of books,” Netflix’s Head of Film Scott Stuber previously said in a Collider interview. “There’s one standalone that we’re working on right now that we’re once again trying to get the script right, but I like it very much, and so does the team. So I feel like if we can get that script right there would be a great kind of extension of that franchise.”
