Not Even Netflix Knows Anything About Stranger Things’ Planned Spinoff

Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer reveal that nobody knows what to expect from their unconfirmed spinoff project, including Netflix.

Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer have plans for a spinoff, but not even Netflix knows what those plans are.

Speaking to Variety, the Duffer Brothers discussed their unannounced and unconfirmed Stranger Things spinoff project, which they believe would “probably” be developed after the popular Netflix series reaches its conclusion with Season 5. “There’s a version of it developing in parallel [to Season 5], but they would never shoot it parallel,” Ross Duffer 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 Duffer branched off of his brother’s point and explained why development hasn’t begun on a spinoff yet. “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.”

Matt then revealed that not even Netflix truly knows what the brother’s plans are, saying, “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.”

As of writing, Stranger Things Season 4 hasn’t finished releasing, but it has already become one of Netflix’s most-watched and popular projects. Volume 1 of the fourth season (consisting of seven episodes) debuted on the streaming service on May 27, beating out Bridgerton Season 2 as the record holder for the biggest premiere weekend for an English-language series on Netflix. Volume 2 will hit the platform on July 1 with two movie-length episodes for fans to binge.

However, fans may witness some of their favorite characters get voted off the island in July. During a recent late-night talk show appearance, Will Byers actor Noah Schnapp accidentally confirmed that the finale will feature “some deaths.” The actor’s exact words were, “We can expect from Volume 2 — we’ve got some deaths coming and some gore and a big…” before he was cut off.

The first volume of Stranger Things Season 4 already features a lot of death, from Hawkins High School students to Russian prisoners, telekinetic children and more. Nobody from the main cast manages to die in Volume 1 though, but the Volume 2 trailer hints at how the body count will rack up for the finale. During the trailer, Robin Buckley (Maya Hawke) says to Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), “It might not work out for us this time,” an ominous tease for what is to come.

The first three seasons and Volume 1 of Stranger Things Season 4 are available to stream now on Netflix. Volume 2 of Season 4 — Stranger Things‘ penultimate season — begins streaming on July 1, 2022.
