Fear Street, R.L. Stine's iconic horror series, is coming to life on Netflix in a trilogy event – and will feature LGBTQ+ characters!

The films take place in three different time periods. The first is set in 1994, where "a circle of teenage friends accidentally encounter the ancient evil responsible for a series of brutal murders that have plagued their town for over 300 years. Welcome to Shadyside."

The second takes place in a camp in 1978. "School’s out for summer and the activities at Camp Nightwing are about to begin. But when another Shadysider is possessed with the urge to kill, the fun in the sun becomes a gruesome fight for survival."

The third, circa 1666, unearths "the origins of Sarah Fier’s curse are finally revealed as history comes full circle on a night that changes the lives of Shadysiders forever."

The trailer dropped earlier today and you can catch two female characters laying in bed together, holding hands, and even sharing a quick kiss. Will they survive their town's mass-murdering spree? We'll just have to wait and see.

R.L. Stine, the author of the Fear Street books, aluded to the show's inclusivity in the press release. “The thing that ties Fear Street to people all over the world is that we all have the same fears. It doesn't matter what country you're in, everyone is afraid of the dark, or afraid somebody's lurking in the closet, or afraid of being in some strange new place they've never been before. We all have the same fears.”

Fear Street Part 1: 1994 premieres July 2, 2021 on Netflix, Part 2: 1976 on July 9, and Part 3: 1666 on July 16. Watch the trailer below:
