The Movie Blog: What are your thoughts on the ending with Madeline and Mina? There’s a halfling flying around, and possibly more of them out there.

Ishana Shyamalan: “For me, the end of the film is meant to establish a larger world. It’s just dipping your toe in, and we have all of that mythology built out much further. So, the idea is that there’s a whole complex world you haven’t yet seen that exists on the outskirts of the film.”

The Movie Blog: Are you teasing it now? I noticed that author A.M. Shine has a follow-up book called Stay In The Light.

Ishana Shyamalan: “Yes.”

The Movie Blog: Are you doing the sequel to The Watchers?

Ishana Shyamalan: “I don’t know. Can’t speak to that just yet, but [A.M Shine] definitely has a second book coming out. So very excited.”

Our chat with Ishana Shyamalan gives some insight into the intriguing ending of The Watchers. Shyamalan laid out a lot of groundwork with the Irish mythology in the film that could warrant a sequel or maybe even a prequel film. While the possibility of a sequel is still up in the air, the hints at a broader story and the existence of a second book by A.M. Shine create the possibility of hope.
