According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stone Quarry Productions - which is Snyder's film production outfit - has signed a first-look deal with the streaming platform, and confirmed suspicions that the Army of the Dead sequel will be made.
The two-year deal means that Snyder will give first refusal to Netflix for whatever he produces, and that includes the recently-announced Rebel Moon.
Snyder said: "My goal and hope are to bring as much quality content as I can and do it on a giant scale.
"Big projects and big movies."
Well, the zombie heist movie that he recently released certainly backs that up, and it's been one of the most watched films that the platform has had, so it makes sense that there would be more in the offing.
He's previously worked with Warner Bros. on many of the DC Universe films - with the notable exception of Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise - but that deal expired in 2019.
Deborah Snyder, who is a producer that happens to be married to Zack, said: "For us, it was so important to find a partnership that was based on mutual respect.
"The creative process works best when everybody trusts each other and you can take chances and be creative.
"For us, we don't usually play it safe.
"The content we make is a little bit edgier. And I think it's important to have a good partnership and hear each other."
She continued: "Netflix has given us a lot of freedom. But they've also embraced the idea of trying new things and not necessarily waiting for a success before moving ahead."
There are other projects in the pipeline for those interested in the Army of the Dead world, too.
An anime film is being made, as well as a prequel called Army of Thieves that has been in production since before the first movie even came out.
That prequel should be available to watch by the autumn, while the anime will hit screens in spring 2022.
Deborah added: "A consumer isn't going to be waiting two years for more and that is exciting.
"I give them a lot of credit for developing that partnership and trust."
The new deal keeps Snyder with Scott Stuber, Netflix's head of film and overseer of Snyder's first ever film Dawn of the Dead.
He's obviously excited, releasing a statement that read: "I've known Zack and Deb for years and was fortunate to be part of Dawn of the Dead, his first film.
"I have since had the privilege of watching his career grow and see the evolving impact of his work. To see him return to his roots with Army of the Dead, which is now one of our most popular films, and build a world out of these characters with the upcoming Army of Thieves and anime series, is amazing to see.
"We've only scratched the surface of what's still to come and create with Zack, Deb, Wes and everyone at Stone Quarry."
