"The Hunger Games" franchise is nearing its completion with the coming release of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2." Although this movie is expected to be the end of the road for Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and company, fans should be excited to learn that there may be more films in the works.

While the upcoming movie will center on Katniss as she wages her final battle with the Capitol, Lionsgate is making plans to possibly extend her storyline beyond where the books take her.The studio's decision to create prequels or sequels of "The Hunger Games" comes after its announcement of extending its successful "Twilight" series, according to Movie News Guide.

In light of the success of the "Twilight" series, Stephanie Meyer decided to breathe new life into her series with "The Storytellers - New Voices of the Twilight Saga." The short films will focus on telling the origins of six different characters in the vampire series.

After news broke that the "Twilight" series would be expanded with six new short films, executive producer Michael Burns stated that it was "just the beginning" for the studio, hinting that they might do the same with other franchises. "You can probably guess what might be coming next," Burns related to MTV.

With more films possibly on the way, the studio certainly has a lot of backstories it could explore in "The Hunger Games." Either way, a sequel or prequel to the series would certainly be a hit following the success of the franchise's first three films.

The short films may allow the studio to delve further into some of the background of major characters that were not covered in the big screen blockbusters. Fans probably want to know what made President Snow so mean, or why there are districts in the first place.

Stay tuned for more information about the "Twilight" shorts and the rumored "Hunger Games" shorts.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" will premiere in theaters on November 20, 2015.
