Though it is Jay (Maika Monroe) who is mainly being targeted in “It Follows,” she spends most of the film with her friends, Paul (Keir Gilchrist) and Yara (Olivia Luccardi), and her sister, Kelly (Lily Sepe). As it stands, only Monroe has been confirmed to be returning, so the sequel could also see Jay with a new circle of friends. This would make sense, assuming “They Follow” addresses the 10-year gap between the two movies.
Still, if “They Follow” were to bring back one other legacy character, it would make a lot of sense for it to be Paul. After all, “It Follows” wraps up with an ambiguous ending that suggests Paul may be the one whom the entity is following at this point. Of course, the sequel could go another way and suggest that the two have broken up, and now that Paul has since died, the entity is again coming for Jay.
Either way, the fact that Monroe is returning does offer fans some confidence that “They Follow” will be more than a cash-grab sequel and could actually have a lot of meat for horror fans to dig into.
