A Stranger Things Spin-Off Is Coming

The fourth season of Stranger Things has officially dropped in its entirety and it's safe to say it took fans on a pretty spectacular ride.

Now, they are looking to the future, and while we still have the fifth and final season to look forward to, the Duffer Brothers have announced there will also be a spin-off. Watch the trailer for volume two of season four below:


The spin-off will be released by the newly-formed (and aptly named) production company Upside Down Pictures, which has already partnered with Netflix for a number of projects.

As reported by Deadline, they have agreed to continue to expand upon the Stranger Things formula to create 'stories that take place at that beautiful crossroads where the ordinary meets the extraordinary, where big spectacle co-exists with intimate character work, where heart wins out over cynicism.'

The projects include not only a Stranger Things spin-off, but a stage play set within the world written by Kate Trefry as well as a live-action adaptation of the Death Note manga.

Reacting to the news of the spin-off, one Stranger Things fan wrote: "I would say it should be about Nancy Steve Robin and Dustin’s adventures [sic]."

A second added: "Don't you dare play with my emotions."

"Please put Eddie Munson in this," pleaded a third.

A fourth agreed, writing: "I better be about Eddie."

For the time being, the Duffer Brothers are taking a well-earned break for a few weeks before delving into the creation of the final season which will bring the events in Hawkins to a close.

They have already planned out the ending of the series and told Deadline they want to 'stick the landing' of its final 20 minutes.

The news outlet reports that it left Netflix executives in tears, so we can only assume that there is some seriously powerful stuff in the works.

That's a good thing too, as fans of the show have said they want the stakes for the final season to be upped as there weren't enough character deaths in the fourth.

This is something Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) also wants to see, as she told The Wrap: "The Duffer Brothers are two sensitive Sallys that don't want to kill anyone off. We need to be Game of Thrones. We need to have the mindset of Game of Thrones."

The 18-year-old actor then asked them to kill off her character to give fans the best possible storyline.
