RL Stine took to his X handle to share news of Netflix giving the go-ahead for a fourth Fear Street film. The author also shared that the fourth film is all set to be inspired from the story line of his book, The Prom Queen. Unlike the three existing films which essentially serve as anthology segments looping in together at the end, the fourth film will be a standalone project, albeit a part of the franchise.
