, Trachtenberg has stated before that he would be interested in returning for more adventures involving the Predator. “There are a lot of exciting ideas for what could be next for the franchise,” the filmmaker said in July. “The things that most excite me are the boldest swings and I think there’s scope to do other things that haven’t been done before.”

Many have suggested where the Predator could end up next, with the idea of a Samurai versus Predator movie taking the top spot, but there is no doubt that audiences would love to see Amber Midthunder’s warrior return for more.

Since landing on Hulu last week, Prey has seen huge success from both critics and audiences alike. The sheer quality and popularity of Prey has quickly been reflected in the viewership figures, with Prey now the most-watched premiere across all films and television series on Hulu in the United States.

Prey is an all-new action-thriller from 20th Century Studios and the next outing in the long-running Predator franchise. Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, Prey is set in the Comanche Nation 300 years ago, and tells the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior. She has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains, so when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries.
