Spoilers for Spiderhead below
If you watched the movie already, you know the film follows a pharmaceutical genius who creates an experimental prison where inmates can trade in their sentence at a traditional prison in exchange for participating in drug trials.
For those who really liked the movie, you might be curious about the possibility of a follow-up film. Of course, that will ultimately come down to how well the movie performs on the streamer this weekend. It’s already getting decent buzz and has a great cast, so we’ll have to see!
Will there be a Spiderhead sequel?
Netflix has not confirmed any news regarding a Spiderhead sequel. It does not seem super likely since the film was based on a short story and wraps up everything neatly by the end. Spiderhead certainly feels like a one-off.
What could a Spiderhead sequel be about?
At the end of the movie, Steve appears to die after crashing his seaplane. But the golden rule of film and television is that if you don’t see a body, you can’t say for certain that person is dead. It’s possible Steve somehow survived and maybe he’ll try to get his revenge on Jeff and Lizzy.
