It's a good news day for Prey fans.
A sequel to Disney+'s hit sci-fi movie could be in the works.
Prey, which premiered on the streaming service last year, is part of the Predator franchise and is a prequel to the original movies.
Set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, it follows Naru (played by Amber Midthunder) a young Comanche woman who is striving to prove herself as a hunter.
When danger threatens her people, she sets out to protect them.
But the prey she stalks turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator.
Prey became a break out hit for the streaming service, earning a 94 per cent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
It also cleaned up in this year's Emmy nominations earning an Outstanding Television Movie nomination, as well as nods for Music Composition, Picture Editing, and Sound Editing.
Director Dan Trachtenberg also earned individual nominations for Outstanding Directing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, and Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie alongside Patrick Aison.
In a recent interview with The Playlist, Trachtenberg hinted that a sequel could be in the works.
"I can’t really say anything about that right now, but I’ll say while we were finishing the movie, we were having really exciting conversations," he told the publication.
He continued: "The studio, myself, the writer, and the producers about what crazy things could we do next.
"And I’ve never stopped, no one stopped thinking about how cool things could be going forward."
This isn't the first time Trachtenberg has spoken about a potential sequel.
“There are a lot of exciting ideas for what could be next for the franchise,” Trachtenberg told Time Out last year.
“The things that most excite me are the boldest swings, and I think there’s scope to do other things that haven’t been done before.”
There's also a hint within the first film's closing credits that there could be another movie on the way.
