Background and info to Fear Street: 1978
Fear Street: 1978 is based on the book series of the same name by R.L. Stine and is the second part of the Fear Street trilogy, which was directed entirely by director Leigh Janiak. The film was released on Netflix on July 9, 2021, a week after the first part.
Originally, the Fear Street trilogy was scheduled to hit theaters in 2020, each film a month apart from its predecessor. However, due to the Corona pandemic, this plan could not be implemented. In August 2020, Netflix secured worldwide rights to the entire trilogy.
After Maya Hawke, who plays a small role in the first part, Sadie Sink is the second actress in the Fear Street trilogy, who gained notoriety through the Netflix series Stranger Things. Although 1978 follows as the second entry in the chronology of the Fear Street trilogy, the film was not made until after Fear Street: 1994 and Fear Street: 1666. (MH)
