How The Nun 2 mid-credits scene teases The Conjuring’s future


HITC contemplates The Nun 2 mid-credits scene that offers a fresh evaluation of The Conjuring franchise’s incredibly promising future.

Directed by Michael Chaves, The Nun 2 is a sequel to 2018’s The Nun but is more importantly the ninth installment in The Conjuring Universe which began with James Wan’s The Conjuring in 2013. Since that first film, we’ve had two Nun movies, three Annabelle efforts, The Curse Of La Llorona, and two Conjuring sequels. The third was The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, and The Nun 2 mid-credits scene forecasts that it’s not over for the Warrens just yet.

The Nun 2 mid-credits scene explained

After Irene and Debra have successfully vanquished the villainous Valak back to hell, The Nun 2 credits begin to roll and audiences are then treated to an additional scene that rallies familiar faces.

The Nun 2 mid-credits scene takes us inside the home of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren. Their telephone is ringing and Ed answers to find that Father Gordon is on the other line.

For those familiar with the franchise, Gordon is a priest who has been played by Steve Coulter throughout the franchise. He explains to Ed and his wife that there’s an emergency he needs their assistance with. “Yes, father. How can we help?” he asks, giving a look to Lorraine to suggest she prepare for another taxing case.


The previous Conjuring movie ended happily for the couple, with Ed showing her a gazebo reminiscent of the one they kissed in after placing an artifact from the case they’ve solved into their ultra-creepy room of mementos.

However, this extra scene at the end of The Nun 2 confirms they’re due a return, so what’s next for The Conjuring?


The Warrens will return in The Conjuring: Last Rites

A sequel film titled The Conjuring: Last Rites has already been announced and both Patrick and Vera are set to reprise their fan-favorite roles. The Nun 2 mid-credits sequence directly facilitates the investigative pair’s return.

“This is going to be that final chapter, so it is a little bit of a tease of that,” The Nun 2 director explained during a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Despite teasing the fourth Conjuring movie as the “final chapter”, it’s unlikely that this will affect further spin-offs and sequels to those. For example, it’s closing the door on further mainline Conjuring movies, not necessarily further Annabelle or Nun movies, etc.

While no release date or plot has been revealed yet, it will be interesting to see if the case the Warrens are called in on has anything to do with The Nun 2’s Maurice, who was being used by Valak as a vessel.

Whether Maurice is involved or not, we have one last case with the Warrens confirmed for The Conjuring series’ future.

‘The way my audience went UP’

Needless to say, the prospect of more time with cinema’s favorite paranormal investigators has pleased The Nun 2 audiences no end.

The fandom has fully shown up to shower the mid-credits with praise:

The Nun 2 is now playing in theaters.
