After the fifth season of “Stranger Things,” the mystery spectacle is far from over, because the universe is expanding. The universe is expanding, starting with a recently confirmed series spin-off.
“Stranger Things” is one of the most successful productions from Netflix and is to be brought to a well-deserved end with the fifth season. However, Deadline reports that the universe will expand beyond the main series, as the streaming provider has recently confirmed work on a spin-off.
The spin-off project does not yet have an official title, but what is already known is that it will be a “Stranger Things” animated series. Among others, Eric Robels, who was responsible for productions such as “Fanboy & Chum Chum,” “Skunk Fu!” and “Family X – On a Secret Mission,” is the driving force behind the project. Matt and Ross Duffer, the creators and showrunners of “Stranger Things,” have already said a few words about the spinoff in a statement:
“We’ve always dreamed of an animated ‘Stranger Things’ series in the style of the Saturday morning cartoons we grew up with, and to learn that this dream is being realized was very exciting. We couldn’t be more blown away than by what Eric Robels and his team have produced – the scripts and artwork are incredible, and we can’t wait to share more with you! The adventure continues.”Matt and Ross Duffer
Other planned “Stranger Things” projects
The animated series will feature Eric Robels, Matt and Ross Duffer as executive producers, director Shawn Levy (“Free Guy”) and producer Dan Cohen (“Love and Monsters”). The Duffer brothers founded the production company Upside Down Pictures last year, which is expected to produce many a “Stranger Things” project in the future. In addition to the animated series, this includes a live-action spin-off as well as a “Stranger Things” theatrical play. Work is also underway on a possible series adaptation of the manga series “Death Note” and Stephen King’s “The Talisman”.
