Does 'Zombieland: Double Tap' have a post-credits scene? (No Spoilers)

Does one sequel beget another?

After 10 long years, we’ve finally gotten the long-overdue sequel to 2009’s Zombieland, a crowning achievement in the niche subgenre of undead comedies. Are we dealing with an emerging franchise in the making? Or is this a one-shot celebrating the 10-year anniversary? One way to know for sure is to take a look at whatever mid- or post-credits scenes might appear after the end.

Zombieland: Double Tap takes place a full decade after the events of the original movie. It begins when Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) runs off with a hippie stoner called Berkeley, sparking a new cross-country adventure. Meanwhile, zombies have evolved in vicious ways over the years, with some gaining enhanced intelligence, agility, or strength. The core group of Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock remain mostly the same in a violent story about finding home with an unlikely family.

But are there any post-credits scenes?

Short answer: Yes!

If you’re sitting in your seat in the theater googling about this, then stick around until the very end of the credits for a fun little scene that contextualizes the universe in an amusing way. It feels a lot like the Captain Marvel post-credits scene, but to understand what we mean, you’ll have to see the movie. (No spoilers here!)

There’s also an extended mid-credits scene that happens immediately after the main story ends, making it impossible to miss. You may currently be in an awkward situation where dozens of people have already stood up and are now gawking at the screen, passively obstructing other people’s views. The post-credits scene feels like a goofy bit, but the mid-credits scene is spectacular and worth the price of admission alone.

Between the ending (which we won’t discuss here), these post-credits scenes, and comments from director Ruben Fleischer and star Emma Stone, most fans might be left with the tantalizing prospect that Zombieland 3 is a possibility. If it is, then it won’t be for a very long time. So be sure to cherish what few extra minutes you get from the mid- and post-credits scenes while you can.
