For those who don’t know, the Fear Street franchise is based upon the Fear Street novels written by American author R. L from the year 1989.

Fear Street Part 1 Recap
In Fear Street Part 1: 1994, we saw the story of Deena played by Kiana Madeira, Josh played by Benjamin Flores Jr., Sam played by Olivia Scott Welch, Simon played by Fred Hechinger, and Kate played by Julia Rehwald. The group found themselves pursued by unnatural forces after accidentally disturbing a seemingly malevolent force. This lead to a series of killings from those forces. With the body count rising, the group eventually finds out that it was Sam who was their true intended target. With the death of Sam, they can actually put an end to the terror. Eventually, the gang decides to form a plan to make it look like Sam is killed but then revive her. Even though the plan worked, the group lost both Kate and Simon while distracting their homicidal pursuers.
But things weren’t the one actually the gang expected. A phone call from C. Berman changed everything, as he told that she has seen similar events in 1978, and said that it never truly ends. This is because the witch always changes the rules as to keep the horror going. At the same time, Sam was possessed and was driven to carry out her own murderous rampage. Thankfully Deena was able to restrain her and decided to revive Sam back. Fear Street Part 2: 1978, will be moving forward from where the first part ended, and we will know more about the situation.
