The new Netflix film Fear Street 1978 was a major hit, and just a week past its release, fans have been asking whether or not the film will get a sequel. Keeping the eager fans in mind, we decided to do some digging. The following article includes everything you need to know about the Fear Street Part 3: 1666 release date, new cast members, possible storylines, and even rumors.
So let’s break it all down!
Is there a possibility for the third film of Fear Street?
Fear Street is a trilogy, which answers your question very well. That yes, we will be getting a third film.
Moreover, the films are based on R.L Stine’s novels, and the story has not been completed yet. So that also adds to the possibility of a third film.
What is the release date for Fear Street part 3 1666?
The first film, Fear Street part one: 1994, was released on Netflix on 2nd July 2021. And the second film, Fear Street part two: 1978, was released one week later, on 9th July. Similarly, the third film is expected to drop on 16th July 2021.
The trilogy had started its filming in 2019, but due to the outbreak of Covid 19, the production had to be abandoned. If the pandemic had not disturbed the flow of things, we could have got the movies in 2020.
Are there any new additions to the cast of Fear Street?
Other than the unique plot, the casting also played a major role in the success of the movies. And fans are hopeful that there will be some more additions to the cast.
As all 3 parts are in continuation, the major characters will remain unchanged, but some new cast members join in the third installment.
Welch will be coming back as Sam Fraser and Madeira as Deena. The characters will also be reprising their respective roles; Elizabeth Scopel as Sarah Fier. In comparison, Sadie Sink will continue playing the younger rebellious version of Ziggy. You will also get to see Jacobs as an adult Ziggy.
One thing special about Fear Street part three: 1666 is that all main characters will play double roles, meaning that dead characters like Fred Hechinger will come back for the third party.
There have been rumors that Stranger Things’ Randy Havens will also debut in the trilogy as George Fier.
What will the third part of the trilogy explore?
If you have read R.L Stine’s novel, then you must know what will happen in the upcoming film. But as the adaptions are not always exact, there might be some slight changes in the plot. So that will be interesting to find out, but the novel fans are scared that Netflix might ruin it for them.
The trilogy has a timeline, and three films are made in the 3 most important years; 1666, 1978, and 1994. As the name suggests, the upcoming film will be set in the year 1666. How? Fear Street part two: 1978’s final scene is to blame.
As the main characters manage to attach the witch’s hand, they magically time travel centuries back, specifically in the year 1666. The story of the third film will resume from where things finished in the second part. The protagonists will be shown solving the mystery about Sarah Frier’s unexpected death.
The teenagers will most likely interact with pastor Cyrus Miller. But there will be one person looking over them all. Any guesses? Yes, you’re right; Christina is that person. But she doesn’t do this task alone. Her love interest Nick Goode will be assisting her.
If the trilogy sticks to the novel, the third film will serve as a redemption for most main characters.
Will there be a 4th part to the Fear Street movies?
No Netflix released Fear Street as a trilogy, and if there were a 4th part of the film, then Netflix would have announced it up till now. But as they didn’t, we are assuming that the story of the haunted town will end with the upcoming film.
But who knows, maybe some years later we might get to see a cast reunion or even a spin-off of the show, and these things are quite possible because of the fame the films are getting.
The movies were filmed in succession, the reason why they are getting released with such a short gap of 7 days. But if the show creators make up their minds for a 4th installment, you’ll have to wait for it for some time.
Is there any trailer for Fear Street part 3: 1666?
No, there isn’t any separate Fear Street part 3: 1666 trailer yet. But there is one official trailer for the whole horror franchise on Netflix’s official YouTube account.
So that was all on the upcoming Fear Street film. Are you willing to watch it? However, in another supernatural universe, Black Adam is making a comeback. Read about it here.
