Doctor Sleep review.
Does Doctor Sleep have a post-credits scene?
You won’t need to sit through the credits, as Doctor Sleep does not have any additional content after the film ends.
It would have been surprising if it did to be honest – considering that there’s no further novels from Stephen King in this universe, and that the filmmakers were so conscious about creating a story that pleased both fans of the novel and Kubrick’s film, so it had to end just right.
If you’d still like to get your Stephen King adaptation fix, then never fear. There are still miniseries planned for The Outsider, The Stand and Lisey’s Story.
