Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer have teased that their potential spin-off is going to take fans by complete surprise.
While there’s still the second part of season four and season five of the beloved Millie Bobby Brown sci-fi drama to come before we say goodbye, the showrunners are getting excited about expanding the universe in new projects.
Although they’re currently waiting for the green light at Netflix, Ross revealed they’re preparing themselves to jump into it.
‘I think actually we’re going to start delving into that soon as we’re winding down and finishing these visual effects, Matt and I are going to start getting into it,’ he said.
Matt added: ‘The reason we haven’t done anything is just because you don’t want to be doing it for the wrong reasons, and it was just like, “Is this something I would want to make regardless of it being related to Stranger Things or not?”
‘And definitely. Even if we took the Stranger Things title off of it, I’m so, so excited about it.’
Matt continued to Variety: ‘But it is not… It’s going to be different than what anyone is expecting, including Netflix.’
Stranger Things season five was announced as the show’s final chapter earlier this year, and while the Duffer brothers didn’t outright confirm spin-offs at the time, they teased ‘there are still many more exciting stories to tell’.
Confirming its ending, Ross and Matt said in a statement: ‘Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons.
‘It proved too large to tell in four, but – as you’ll soon see for yourselves – we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.’
They then teased: ‘There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of ‘Stranger Things’; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes.
‘First, we hope that you stay with us as we finish this tale of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, of a broken police chief and a ferocious mom, of a small town called Hawkins and an alternate dimension known only as the Upside Down.
‘As always, we’re grateful for your patience and support.’
