Stranger Things is now in its fourth season, with two full-length episodes coming next month
Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer have confirmed that the supernatural sci-fi series Stranger Things will be renewed for its fifth and final season.
However, the Duffer brothers also confirmed that a spinoff project could be on the way in the future.
Stranger Things follows a group of American high school students as they struggle with paranormal creatures, gateways to other dimensions, and relationship drama.
Netflix has had success with spinoff projects in the past – Better Call Saul, now in its sixth and final season, was incredibly well received by fans.
Other Netflix shows reportedly having spinoffs in the works include Regency series Bridgerton, fantasy show The Witcher, and crime series Money Heist.
What has been said about a Stranger Things spinoff?
The Duffer brothers said: “There are many more exciting stories to tell in the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes.
“But first, we hope you’ll stay with us as we discover this story of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, a broken police chief and a wild mother, a small town called Hawkins, and another dimension known only as The.” , finish upside down.
“The key for us is that (any spin-off) has to feel like a separate thing, and not that we’re just reinventing what we’ve already done.”
The pair told Variety, “We have an idea for a spin-off that we’re really excited about, but we haven’t pitched the idea to anyone let alone written it. We think everyone – including Netflix – will be surprised when they hear the concept because it’s very, very different.”
What is the spinoff series about?
Unfortunately, there is currently no concrete information about the spinoff series, other than that it will be set in the same universe as the series.
Since Stranger Things focuses on Eleven and her friends, it’s likely that a spinoff will have a different set of main characters with limited crossover.
While the Duffer brothers are currently silent on the details of the series’ plot, they said that Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard guessed what the series’ main strands would be.
When is Stranger Things Season 4 Part 2 coming out?
The second part of the fourth season of Stranger Things consists of two feature-length episodes.
Both episodes will be released on Netflix on June 1st.
When is the Stranger Things spinoff series coming out?
The Duffer brothers have yet to start writing the script, let alone casting and filming the series, so the as yet untitled spin-off is unlikely to air anytime soon.
Filming for Stranger Things season 5 hasn’t started yet either, and a release date for the final season isn’t expected until 2023 or 2024.
A spinoff is unlikely to be released until Stranger Things is complete, so 2025 is likely the earliest year the spinoff will air.
