When the Duffer Brothers, the showrunners and creators of Stranger Things, they want to give the series its final name. This, they believe, would allow them to pursue other creative avenues after dedicating nearly a decade to the sci-fi horror series.
Matt said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast: "I find it ridiculous to me, even the thought of Ross and I, say, doing a [Stranger Things spin-off] pilot and leaving it,." You have to be there from the beginning to the end. I think we need to find a partner to assist us in this process.
The Duffer Brothers did not disclose any plot details for the Stranger Things spin-off, but they teased that the original series will have the same connective tissue as Millie Bobby Browns Eleven or Gaten Matarazzos Dustin Henderson. Weve already discussed this with their different than what anyone is expecting mark.
The Duffer Brothers' comments come just days after Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 launched on Netflix on July 1; the two-episode finale to the fourth season sparked a lot of interest as Netflix reportedly crashed shortly after its release. Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 will be followed by a fifth and final season, which marks the end of the Netflix saga that began in 2016.
Stranger Things 5 is in either direction, and is expected to be followed by a spin-off series, which may not have the Duffer brothers at the helm.
