Fans of Stranger Things are having a bittersweet moment right now. After watching the thrilling end to season four, fans are desperately waiting for the show’s fifth season, however, knowing that it will be the last. Every single fan of Stranger Things is not ready to leave the show and wants to continue watching it through a spinoff.
Spinoffs were always a possibility for an immensely successful show like Stranger Things, but nothing was confirmed till now. Finally, it looks like fans’ prayers have been answered, and a Stranger Things spinoff is in the works.
A Stranger Things spinoff has officially been announced
The show Stranger Things is coming to an end, but its unique storylines will live on.
Upside Down Pictures, a new production company created by the show’s creators, The Duffer Brothers, is developing a live-action Stranger Things spinoff as well as a stage play set inside the universe and mythology of the series.
Upside Down Pictures is part of Netflix’s ongoing partnership with Matt and Ross Duffer.
Actor Finn Wolfhard earlier teased the spinoff. But at that time, it was just speculation. Not much is known about the spinoff at the moment, but things will become clearer as the project starts developing.
What do the fans want to see in the spinoff?
As soon as the news of the spinoff got out, fans could not control their excitement. The chance of them getting to watch more of their favorite show was nothing less than a blessing for them.
However, all the fans wanted particular things to be a part of the new show. Some want a show with the dearly departed Eddie and Chrissy, while others want to see more of the main cast.
Hundred of potential ideas have been pouring in on Twitter. Some of them are.
If we’re all still alive in 20 years, I *would* watch a STRANGER THINGS spin-off called “Harringtons” where it’s Nancy and Steve and their three kids, two foster kids, and Dustin traveling the country, solving mysterious crimes in America’s Great National Parks.

If the duffer brothers could write a spin off show of Eddie and Chrissy getting together in the afterlife, I would watch that every day for the rest of my life. @strangerwriters #StrangerThings #StrangerThings4 #StrangerThings4Vol2 #EDDIEMUNSON #EddieDeservedBetter #Eddissy pic.twitter.com/XmdnKjjiz7

I wish, apparently the spin off will have nothing to do with the main cast.
