Adapted from the eponymous book series by popular children’s author R. L. Stine, the Fear Street trilogy is a series of horror films. It takes place in the city of Shadyside, where rampaging murderers are so frequent that the city has been given the nickname “the killer capital of the United States”. It is revealed during the first two films that a vengeful witch cast a curse on the city and its citizens 350 years ago.
The first film, titled Fear Street Part 1: 1994, was released on July 2, 2021. It was followed by Fear Street Part 2: 1978 on July 9, 2021. Here’s everything you need to know about the third and final installment of the franchise.
Fear Street Part 3: 1666 Release Date
Casting of Fear Street Part 3: 1666
Fear Street Part 2: 1978 starred Kiana Madeira as Deena Johnson, Ashley Zukerman as Nick Goode, Benjamin Flores Jr. as Josh, Olivia Welch as Sam, Sadie Sink as Christine “Ziggy” Berman, Emily Rudd as Cindy Berman, Gillian Jacobs as C. Berman, Ted Sutherland (young Nick Goode), Ryan Simpkins (Alice), McCabe Slye (Tommy Slater), Jordyn DiNatale (Ruby Lane), Brandon Spink (young Will Goode), Chiara Aurelia (Sheila), Sam Brooks (Arnie) and Jordana Spiro (nurse Mary Lane).
The respective characters of Rudd, Simpkins, Slye, and Brooks were killed in the second film, but since the themes of the trilogy include witchcraft, magic, fantasy, and curses, they could return in Fear Street Part 3: 1666. In addition, the film series has distributed the same actors in several roles, so many of them should return in the third film to represent various characters from 17th century America.

Plot of Fear Street Part 3: 1666
In Fear Street Part 2: 1978, C. Berman or Christine tells the story of the Camp Nightwing massacre in Deena and Josh. His sister’s boyfriend, Tommy, is possessed by the witch and begins killing people as an Axe killer. Although the camp hosts young boys and girls from Shadyside and Sunnyvale, the killer only attacks Shadysiders. Alice finds the witch’s hand, but they fail to reunite it with the rest of the witch’s body. Alice and Cindy both die, but young Nick resurrects Christine. In 1994, Deena and Josh find her hand and take her to the place where The rest of Sarah Fier is buried. The film ends with Deena having a lucid vision in which she sees through Sarah’s eyes.
In Fear Street Part 3: 1666, Deena could be the main character. We will probably learn the origin of the curse. The drastic difference between Sunnyvale’s and Shadyside’s quality of life could finally be explained. It is strongly suggested that the work of Nick and his predecessors as sheriff is somehow related to the curse and suffering of Shadyside. The last film 1666 could offer an in-depth explanation of this.
