Speaking in an interview with EW, DeMonaco explained the next entry will likely be the last. “I have it in my head. I think I’m going to write it. I think it’s a great way to end it all. We want to end it all, I think, in this one, and I’m very excited. When I came up with the idea and pitched it to everybody, they seemed psyched, and I think it will be a really cool ending, how we take this one home.”

The series has brought in $456.1 million globally with the most recent entry becoming the highest grossing film in the series.
