Netflix is expanding its library as the streamer has purchased a trilogy of Fear Street movies, based on R.L. Stine’s teen horror series and directed by Leigh Janiak, from Disney.

The three completed films were produced at Fox with the goal of releasing each movie a month apart. Filming began last year in Georgia and they were scheduled for a release in June 2020, but the movies were pulled from their schedule after the COVID-19 pandemic closed theaters.

The Fear Street books are set in the fictional city of Shadyside, Ohio and the films are set to cover three different time periods, including the 1600s. The cast includes Kiana Madeira, Olivia Welch, Benjamin Flores Jr., Ashley Zukerman, Fred Hechinger, Julia Rehwald, and Jeremy Ford.

No word on when the films will be released.
