In 2013, [=McLean=] decided to expand on the Mick Taylor mythos with a series of projects across several media. A film sequel was released in 2014, depicting Taylor going after a new set of victims and hunting one male tourist in particular across the country. A pair of prequel novels were written with the aid of well known Australian horror authors, one (''Origin'') exploring [[StartOfDarkness Mick's childhood]] and the beginnings of his proclivities as he comes of age, and the other (''Desolation Game'') showing his time in the Vietnam War and the start of his predatory stalker tendencies back home in the Outback. Most recently, the Wolf Creek television miniseries sequel explores what would happen if someone actually fought back against Mick and tracked him down out of vengeance for him slaughtering her family (in this case, an American girl named Eve) and the various risks she exposes herself to in doing so, including having to evade law enforcement (who quite rightly want to send her back to the US for her own well being and as she's breaking laws in her mission) and various other criminal entities roaming the desert.

* {{Flanderization}}: In the first movie, Mick lets a "jokes" slip about how [[Main/PoliticallyIncorrectVillain he sees foreigners as "vermin"]], but doesn't express this belief for the remainder of the movie. Come the sequel, xenophobia is his defining motive to kill.
