Could The Babysitter: Killer Queen's Ending Be Setting the Franchise Up For a Third Movie?
There's been no word from Netflix yet about whether or not there'll be a follow-up to The Babysitter: Killer Queen, which premiered on Netflix Sept. 10, but the movie's mid-credits scene is giving us hope. With Cole finally getting the girl, and Bee, Melanie, and the rest of the blood cult seemingly dead, all is right in the world. That is . . . until we catch a glimpse of Bee's satanic book completely intact during the mid-credits scene. What could it possibly mean for the future of The Babysitter franchise? In an interview with POPSUGAR, stars Judah Lewis (Cole) and Emily Alyn Lind (Melanie) discussed what they'd like to see if a third movie becomes a reality.
"I'd really like to see where Cole and Phoebe's relationship goes and what develops there," said Lewis when asked about what he envisions for Cole. "I'd also like to see him make it through high school and graduate. I don't know if there are any more demons out there for him to conquer." Granted, Cole didn't think Melanie would betray him, so it makes logical sense that Phoebe would be next. She is the most important woman in his life, but then again, maybe Cole's been through enough and Phoebe will be the first to not betray him.
Lind had her own ideas about a potential The Babysitter 3, seeing as her character didn't technically make it out of the second one alive. "I would like to see Cole and Phoebe navigating high school, before everything inevitably goes bad again," she said. After all, we don't fully know if Melanie and the blood cult are gone for good or if they're just in hell until they can try the ritual again in two years, which would put Phoebe and Cole in college. Could you imagine the blood cult popping up while Cole was in the middle of final exams? I'd probably just let them take me right then and there.
Hopefully we'll get word from Netflix soon, because I'd love to see the blood cult go after Cole as the sacrifice rather than the blood of the innocent (since he's not so innocent anymore, wink, wink). With the satanic book just chilling in the desert, who knows who's going to pick it up. Perhaps we'll have an entirely new group to follow, with Cole and Phoebe popping in to serve as guides to help the new "innocent" survive the ritual. Until then, why not rewatch The Babysitter and The Babysitter: Killer Queen?
