Netflix’s ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2’? Rumors Have Begun to Swirl….

It’s been four months since Netflix premiered Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a brand new “legacy sequel” to Tobe Hooper’s original horror classic that arrived on February 18th. We haven’t heard a peep about the franchise’s future since then, but as of this week rumors have started to swirl that Netflix might be looking to continue the storyline with a couple sequels.

Yes, the rumor is that Netflix is looking to order up not just one but possibly even two Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequels, a rumor that Bloody Disgusting has not been able to confirm. We have heard, however, that Netflix has very much discussed the *possibility* of potential sequels to their Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie, all dependent on the film’s performance.

We checked with our sources and can confirm Netflix had most definitely discussed plans for sequels ahead of the release, performance pending. In other words, Netflix would gladly bring Leatherface back for more if enough people streamed Texas Chainsaw Massacre this year. Which begs the question: was the film’s performance strong enough to warrant more?

Here’s what we know. In its debut weekend, Texas Chainsaw Massacre came in the #2 spot on Netflix’s global charts for that week, viewed by subscribers for 29,180,000 hours in those first few days. In its second week of being available on Netflix, the legacy sequel was the #3 most-watched movie on the streaming service, suggesting it was definitely a hit for Netflix.

Netflix has only provided numbers on the film for those first two weeks, so the trail goes cold from there. But we do know that Texas Chainsaw Massacre director David Blue Garcia is very much interested in picking up the chainsaw again, revealing in an interview back in February that he’s already got “some really cool ideas” for where the franchise could go next.

In the post-credits teaser scene for Texas Chainsaw Massacre, we saw Leatherface return to the infamous house from Tobe Hooper’s original classic, the place where the nightmare began. A battered and bloodied Leatherface stumbles down a dirt path carrying his trusty chainsaw, the filmmakers revealing his old family home as the monster’s new destination…

No word on whether or not producer Fede Alvarez would remain involved for any subsequent Texas Chainsaw Massacre films from Legendary & Netflix, but we’ll report more as we learn it.
