Will there be a ‘Stranger Things’ spin-off?

As fans prepare to say goodbye to “Stranger Things” after season five, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer are teasing that there could be more “Stranger Things” adventures on the way. While the showrunners have hinted at a potential spin-off before, they seem to be committed to the idea in a new interview with Variety. The Duffers remain tight-lipped on specifics at this time, but revealed the potential spinoff is “different from what everyone expects.”

Given the wide cast of characters in the “Stranger Things” universe, a potential spin-off could follow a Hawkins favorite like Robin, Steve, or Erica (if they survive the final season), or it could take place in a completely different time or place. . If season four has taught viewers anything, it’s that the conspiracy at Hawkins’ center runs deeper than anyone ever imagined.

One thing is certain, the Duffers are passionate about the mysterious idea at the heart of the spin-off. “The reason we didn’t do anything is just because you don’t want to do it for the wrong reasons, and it was just like, ‘Is this something I would want to do, even if it’s is ‘Stranger Things’ related or not?’ And definitely,” Matt said. “Even if we take the title ‘Stranger Things’ out of it, I’m so, so excited about it. But it’s not… It’s going to be different from what everyone expects, including Netflix. “

That being said, at least one cast member has an idea of ​​what the busy showrunners are planning. The brothers told Variety that Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike, correctly guessed what it was. “Finn Wolfhard, he wasn’t spitting, he was just like, ‘I think that would be a cool spin-off,'” Ross revealed. “And we were like, ‘How the hell…'”

What is the ‘Stranger Things’ spin-off about?

At this early stage, it’s unclear what the proposed spin-off would consist of. However, when the Duffer Brothers announced that season five would be the final season of ‘Stranger Things’, they teased, “there are still many more exciting stories to be told in the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, unexpected new heroes.”

When will the ‘Stranger Things’ spin-off premiere?

If Netflix officially orders the spinoff, fans will have to wait a while before they’re allowed to return to the world of “Stranger Things.” Right now, the Duffers are focused on bringing the original series to a satisfying conclusion. But they also look to the future of the franchise.

“There is a version that develops in parallel [to season 5]but they would never spin in parallel,” Ross said. “I think actually we’re going to start diving into that as soon as we get done and finishing those visual effects, Matt and I are going to start diving into that. “

With that in mind, a “Stranger Things” spin-off is unlikely to air until 2024 or 2025.
