The director of “Frozen Empire” gives a taste of the new film after the credits scene

Spoilers for Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire follow.

Gil Kenan, director of “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire,” hinted to his fans about a possible sequel to the franchise following the end credits scene of “Frozen Empire.”

The mid-credits scene begins after the Ghostbusters save New York City from the Phantom God Garraka. However, at a gas station, a Stay-Puft Marshmallows truck appears to drive away on its own. It turns out that it is the Mini-Pufts driving the truck.

It's a nice little scene, but in a new interview with EW, director Kenan explained that it could lead to further installments in the Ghostbusters film series.

“As far as moving forward… look, we really care about the characters in this film. We feel like there's more story to tell,” Kenan said.

“And I really hope that audiences can connect with the adventures that the Spengler family experiences in this film. And if that's the case, then I really hope we can continue this story.”

Kenan also explained that he and co-writer and producer Jason Reitman specifically “crafted a story [their] Sleeves,” which continues this mid-credits scene.

“There's more trouble where this came from. We can't say anything about it yet, but it feels like these guys have a lot more to say,” Kenan said.

“I love these guys. They are so much fun to lead. [They’re] Prima donnas. Their rider is impossible, but what they do on screen is worth it,” he added jokingly.

If there were to be a new Ghostbusters movie, it would make sense to pick up where the mid-credits scene left off.

Frozen Empire itself is a continuation of the post-credits scene from Ghostbusters: Afterlife, in which Ernie Hudson's Winston returns the Ecto-1 to its home at the firehouse.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is in theaters now.
