Warning: Prey spoilers ahead!
POV: You just finished watching Prey on Hulu. You breathed a huge sigh of relief that star Amber Midthunder and her adorable dog survived, while that vile old Predator alien got the beheading it deserved. Sure, a lot of people were brutally stabbed, but it’s happily ever after, right?
Not so fast. Although there is no Prey ending credits scene, there’s a little bit of bonus content baked into the credits that seems to suggest the story isn’t over yet. Are you really surprised? This is the fifth installment in the Predator franchise, which all started with the years 1987 Predator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Prey, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, is set in the Comanche Nation in 1917 and serves as a prequel to the first four films, although it works as a standalone story. But that credits run will leave viewers wanting more.
So there will be one Prey 2? What does the future of? Predator movies look like? This is what we know so far.
is there a Prey end credits scene?
Not exactly. There is no Prey mid-credits of Prey end credits scene. There is, however, a small teaser for those who do watch the credits: a hand-drawn image that suggests there may be more stories to follow. After the film ends—after Naru delivers Predator’s head to her father and tells her tribe to find safer ground—the credits roll, alongside some hand-drawn stick figures that recap the events of the film. We see drawings of Naru and her dog, Naru looking at the mountain lion, and the warriors on the hunt.
But the final image is a stick drawing of a scene we didn’t see in the film: the characters in the final scene of the film turn and watch two ominous, menacing spaceships appear in the sky. This suggests that Naru’s battle is not over and that her community will soon have to deal with a whole shipload of Predators.
Will there be one Prey 2 or another Predator movie?
There is no official news about it Prey 2 or a future Predator movie right now. However, it seems that Trachtenberg is at least interested in continuing the story.
In an interview with Sci-Fi and Fantasy Gazette, director Dan Trachtenberg commented on the credits teasers, saying, “While other movies may have a post-credits scene, we have some stories in our credits themselves. It leaves room for many different kinds of sequels. I don’t know if we’re ready to say exactly what we want to do next, but I think there are a lot of great opportunities.”
In an earlier interview with Time Out, Trachtenberg explained, “There are a lot of exciting ideas for what the future could hold for the franchise. The things that excite me the most are the boldest swings and I think there’s room to do other things that haven’t been done before.”
Even if Naru’s story doesn’t continue, we’re confident this won’t be the last time you’ll see Predator on screen. After all, it has been around for over 30 years. Why stop now?
