American gothic supernatural horror film The Nun 2 was released on September 8, 2023, and it is the sequel of the 2018 movie The Nun. While the first movie was directed by Corin Hardy, this one is directed by Michael Chaves. It is the ninth movie in The Conjuring movie franchise. James Wan, creator of The Conjuring Universe, is the producer of the movie.

Michael Chaves is not a stranger to the horror genre as he has directed The Curse of La Llorona in 2019 and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It in 2021. He has recently revealed that the post-credits of The Nun 2 have a connection to the upcoming movie The Conjuring: Last Rites.

The Nun 2’s Post-credits are Related to The Conjuring: Last Rites

Director Michael Chaves appeared in an interview on Slash Film in which the interviewer asked him if the post-credits scene gives a lead to the events in The Conjuring: Last Rites. Chaves gave a vague response, saying that the story is still being written so there is room for many creative directions. He 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.”

He also said that he doesn’t want to give any spoilers about the cast or the plot. That being said, he has assured the fans of the franchise that a “great finale” is being planned for The Conjuring: Last Rites.

Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of The Conjuring franchise in an online featurette by Rotten Tomatoes Trailers on YouTube, James Wan revealed his vision for the saga’s future. He said:

“It would be great to eventually bring it back full circle — bring the Nun’s story and tie it back into The Conjuring. We’ve created this universe that has such a huge fan base. The demon nun really captured the zeitgeist.”

The demon nun that is seen in The Nun film series has become a fan favorite and so the creators seem to be using it to their benefit as they continue to make more movies that will resonate with their fans, hence, producing more box-office hits.

The Nun 2 is currently in theatres.
