During an interview with the prominent media outlet Slash Film, The Nun 2 director Micahel Chaves spoke about the horror drama and even mentioned the post-credits scene which directly indicates the development of the upcoming movie The Conjuring: Last Rite. The filmmaker said-

“I think that they’re still writing it. They’re still working on it. There’s definitely Conjuring: Last Rites coming. And in terms of the exorcism of Maurice, that’s always been a center, a cornerstone marker in the timeline, and I think it’s up to interpretation. I think there’s a lot of things that need to align, so it could go a couple different ways.”
