With the tremendous milestone inside Hulu and the fandom that it has acquired, fans are now wondering about the odds of seeing a Prey sequel with Naru being declared as the new War Chief. Thankfully, the Prey lead star is also optimistic about the possibility.

In an interview with EW, Midthunder addressed the possibility of doing a Prey sequel, as long as 20th Century Fox agrees. According to her, she trusts that director Dan Trachtenberg will make the right choice:

"I don't know what the plans are for the future, but I trust whatever decision is made. Dan [Trachtenberg] spent so long developing this with 20th Century. Obviously, all that time was used to make a really great thing. I'm sure that nobody would make something again, if it wasn't amazing. So I think whatever happens, I think it will be the right choice."

Prey's whole narrative centers on Naru wanting to follow in his brother's footsteps in becoming a hunter. Eventually, Naru was declared the War Chief after hunting down and single-handedly outplaying the Predator. With that being said, Naru's character arc is back to a clean slate, and it's now up to the writers how they will craft Naru's next adventure.

Thankfully, Prey director Dan Trachtenberg is also ready to return for a sequel, as he told The Hollywood Reporter:

"The nerd in me looked that far ahead, as far as he could look, before we started writing this movie, but the adult in me said, 'Don’t count your chickens and just be careful. Try and make the best movie possible, straight away.’ End-credit sequence aside, there is something refreshing about seeing a movie that is not really intended to be just a part one to something else. There’s something nice about seeing a complete thought. On the complete other hand, I love that what would’ve been a post-credit scene in other movies, is an animated end-title sequence in our movie. Our end titles are still storytelling."

Prey is available to stream on Hulu.
