WATCH: Have you watched Love and Monsters yet? 

It has not yet been announced if there will be a second Love and Monsters film. Given that the film was only released in the US in October 2020 and worldwide in April 2021, it seems likely that fans will have to wait a little while before an official statement is made.

The good news is that the film has shot to the top spot on Netflix's Top 10 list in almost every country it's available in, meaning that it has become the streaming site's most-watched movie on the site over the last week.

Likewise, there's plenty of interest in continuing Joel's story from the film's cast and crew. Following the movie's theatrical release in the United States last year, director Michael Matthews told Decider: "There's been some discussion about it. I've got a few interesting ideas. But we did focus on this just being its own movie.

"It's not the approach of, 'How do we start a franchise?' It was really like, 'Let's make a cool movie!\ And then let's see what the response is, how it does, and think about an interesting way of where that world can go."

He continued: "For me, and for Dylan, that's been quite a key thing: Not trying to visualize it as this movie that's a franchise starter. That's really up to the audience."

Let's hope it is, since viewers have clearly been loving the action-adventure and have been filling Twitter with positive reviews and comments all week.

A second fan said: "Just finished watching #LoveAndMonsters and it was great. Kind of reminded me of Zombieland which I love and the dog was so cute," while a third added: "I surprisingly really liked #LoveAndMonsters... Big fan of any film where a dog is the supporting actor."
