Now, still in mourning, the world has gotten an answer on the fate of these shows.Here is the statement from Universal Cable Productions (UCP), which Craven had a first-look deal with:

Wes Craven was a master artist, a gentleman and it was our pleasure to work with him. It is our intention to bring to life all the projects Wes developed at Universal Cable Productions. Thankfully these projects have benefitted greatly from his development and guidance since their inception. They will continue in his honor and spirit.

Syfy also saluted the late Craven in the network’s own statement, adding that it (along with UCP) “will continue to develop ‘The People Under the Stairs’ and ‘We Are All Completely Fine’ — projects to which Wes had already contributed so greatly — in his spirit.”
