As hinted in the movie, Yelena is likely to appear in the upcoming Hawkeye series for a confrontation with Clint. However, some things are quite unclear right now and will only be cleared once the mini-series with Jeremy Renner and Hailey Steinfeld as Kate Bishop premieres later this year. 

According to the events that took place in Black Widow, Yelena will have a major Marvel role going forward, so we can expect any Black Widow sequel which would feature her as well.
