It makes sense that they would want to keep the same crew. Spider-Man: Homecoming made $319 million domestically at the box office, $737 million worldwide, and was almost universally praised by critics and fans alike. Jon Watts is in talks to return as director, as well. From THR:

"McKenna and Sommers hail from the comedy and animation world, having been writer-producers on American Dad, Community and The Mindy Project. The duo worked on The Lego Batman Movie and impressed both Sony and Marvel with their Homecoming work, who then also hired them for the studios' Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Ant-Man and the Wasp movies, respectively."

Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 is due out July 5th, 2019, and will be the first movie to come out post-Avengers 4, and will kick off Marvel Phase 4.

Summary: Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Peter Parker attempts to balance his life in high school with his career as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Donald Glover, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, and Michael Keaton. Swing on down to your local theater and check it out now.
