The end is near for Stranger Things, as the pop culture phenomenon is set to conclude with its fifth season, which enters production this year. Though fans need not worry, because series creators Matt and Ross Duffer confirmed they were working with Netflix in order to produce spinoffs of the beloved coming-of-age series. Now, we have official confirmation that an offshoot series has been ordered by the streamer. And if that weren’t exciting enough, it’ll mark a first for the franchise.
Netflix officially announced that an untitled adult animated series set within the world of Stranger Things is officially in the works. The new show is being developed by Eric Robles, who serves as executive producer on behalf of 21 Laps. The Duffer Brothers will also act as EPs under their recently established Upside Down Pictures banner. Shawn Levy, who also co-produces the parent show, does the same here as well alongside Dan Cohen by way of their 21 Laps imprint. The Duffers marked the occasion with a joint statement in which they shared high praise for Robles:
Be sure you have a Netflix subscription so you can check out the upcoming series when it eventually debuts and, in the meantime, check out all four seasons of Stranger Things (opens in new tab).
