— Netflix

Netflix is no stranger to experimental releases, from making that a standalone movie would be the future of the franchise, so don’t count on The Prom Queen being another start to a trilogy. But aside from the source material, we don’t know much more yet.

This blank slate gives Netflix some new opportunities. While the trilogy was set in 1666, 1978, and 1994, a new movie could be set in the present day to set itself apart from the previous period pieces (and to avoid the book’s incessant references to Madonna and Christian Slater).

It’s unclear if this movie will tie into the lore of Sarah Fier, the innocent victim of a witch hunt who haunted the previous Fear Street movies. Considering the source material, it’s more likely to take its influence from films like Prom Night and Carrie. But even if it’s just a one-off adventure, any stroll down Fear Street is welcome.

The Fear Street trilogy is streaming on Netflix.
