Netflix has revealed the ensemble cast for the next installment of the “Fear Street” franchise, “Prom Queen.”

The cast includes India Fowler (“The Nevers”, “Insomnia”), Suzanna Son (“Red Rocket,” “The Idol”), Fina Strazza (“Paper Girls,” “Above the Shadows”), David Iacono (“The Summer I Turned Pretty,” “Cinnamon”), Ella Rubin (“The Idea of You”), Chris Klein (“Sweet Magnolias,” “American Pie”), Lili Taylor (“Outer Range,” “Manhunt”), and Katherine Waterston (“The End We Start From,” “Perry Mason”).

The upcoming teenage horror movie is based on R.L. Stine’s 1992 “Fear Street” novel, “The Prom Queen”. 

Per the official logline, “Prom season at Shadyside High is underway and the school’s wolfpack of It Girls is busy with its usual sweet and vicious campaigns for the crown. But when a gutsy outsider is unexpectedly nominated to the court, and the other girls start mysteriously disappearing, the class of ’88 is suddenly in for one hell of a prom night.”

Yvonne Bernard, Joan Waricha, and Jane Stine will serve as executive producers alongside Caroline Pitofsky, who is overseeing production for Chernin Entertainment. 

Producers include Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, and Kori Adelson for Chernin Entertainment.

Back in January, Stine confirmed that a new “Fear Street” movie was in development at Netflix.

“Movie News: I can finally announce that a new Fear Street movie is about to go into production for Netflix. It’s based on my Fear Street book, The Prom Queen. Good news!” Stine said in a social media post.

This will be the fourth “Fear Street” movie at Netflix after the Leigh Janiak-directed 2021 trilogy — “Fear Street Part One: 1994”, “Fear Street Part Two: 1978”, and “Fear Street Part Three: 1666.”

Netflix released one Fear Street movie a week for three weeks in 2021. While the trilogy was inspired by R. L. Stine’s "Fear Street: 1994", "Fear Street: 1978", and "Fear Street: 1666", they were not based on any specific books written by Stine.

The giant streamer announced back in November that a standalone Fear Street movie was in the works, and that this time, the movie will be based on a specific book.

“Obviously, there’s a lot of books,” Netflix’s Head of Film Scott Stuber previously told Collider. “There’s one standalone that we’re working on right now that we’re once again trying to get the script right, but I like it very much, and so does the team. So I feel like if we can get that script right there would be a great kind of extension of that franchise.”
