The creators of Stranger Things, Matt and Ross Duffer, have revealed some details about their show spin-off project, which hasn’t been officially announced or affirmed by Netflix yet.
When asked whether or not they would hold off on the last season of Stranger Things to operate their project, both confirmed that they “probably” would.
“There’s a version of it developing in parallel [to season 5], but they would never shoot parallel,” Ross said. “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.”
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. But it is not… It’s going to be different than what anyone is expecting, including Netflix.”
The sci-fi series is preparing its fans for the release of two last big episodes.
At the time the season 5 was revealed to be the show’s last, the Duffer brothers did not formally disclose a spin-off but revealed a sneak peek that “there are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes.”
The Duffer brothers have been tightlipped about their plan for the spin-off, except for the involvement of Finn Wolfhard.
“Finn Wolfhard, he wasn’t spitballing; he just went, ‘I think this would be a cool spin-off,’” Ross recalled of the time the star rightly guessed what the new show would be.
“And we were like, ‘How in the world…’” The Duffer brothers didn’t explain and just said that they think Wolfhard will be a “really talented director” in the future.It’s finally here.
Stranger Things Season 4 Volume II will be dropping on Netflix on July 1, and we cannot wait.
