- The Stranger Things spinoff won’t feature any well-known characters, and The Duffer Brothers will be “very involved with” it.
- It will only be released after Stranger Things 5.
Stranger Things Updates: The Duffer Brothers, Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, who created and are the showrunners of Stranger Things, want to “hand the torch” to someone else when a spinoff series ever happens.
After spending nearly a decade on the scifi horror series, they believe that this will enable them to explore new creative directions. The two indicated that they want the replacement to be “skilled and passionate,” but they did not provide any names of potential candidates.
However, the Duffer Brothers intend to continue being “extremely active” with the Stranger Things spinoff in some way.”Even the concept of Ross and I, say, shooting a [Stranger Things spinoff] pilot and leaving it, it just feels ludicrous to me,” Matt stated on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. You must truly be present from start to finish. I believe we need to enlist some assistance from a partner for that.
The Duffer Brothers indicated that the Stranger Things spinoff will have the same “connective tissue” as the original series, though they did not provide any story information.The brothers made it clear that the spinoff will not centre on figures like Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) or Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo), as “we’ve done all that.” This was something that the Duffer Brothers had previously alluded to by saying that it was “different than what everybody is expecting.”Days after Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 aired on July 1 on Netflix, The Duffer Brothers made their remarks. Due to reports that Netflix collapsed immediately after the fourth season’s two episode finale’s release, it attracted a great amount of attention. A fifth and final season of Stranger Things is scheduled to air after Volume 2 and will conclude the Netflix drama that began in 2016.Although work on Stranger Things season 5 has already begun, no release date has been announced.In any case, a spinoff series that might not be directed by the Duffer brothers is anticipated to come after Stranger Things 5.
