Netflix planning plenty of spin-offs for Stranger Things

  • Reports suggest more Stranger Things adjacent content may be on the may, and Netflix looks to capitalise on its most popular IP.
  • An animated series is already in the works, with a VR game, and stage play also said to be in development.
  • The show’s creators are also working on a live-action Death Note series too for the streaming platform.

While we are still awaiting word on when season five of Stranger Things will land on Netflix, the streaming platform and the show’s creators don’t seem to be wasting any time when it comes to new content adjacent to this wildly popular IP.

To that end, Netflix has ordered an animated series based on Stranger Things, as the spin-offs from this property multiply. The streaming platform has already developed some gaming offerings based on the world that the Duffer Brothers created, and now an animated series is in the works.

According to Variety, which spoke with the Duffer Brothers, the animated series is being developed by Eric Robles and Flying Bark Productions.

“We’ve always dreamed of an animated ‘Stranger Things’ in the vein of the Saturday morning cartoons that we grew up loving, and to see this dream realized has been absolutely thrilling,” the Duffer Brothers told the publication in an official statement.

“We couldn’t be more blown away by what Eric Robles and his team have come up with — the scripts and artwork are incredible, and we can’t wait to share more with you! The adventure continues…,” they added.

Along with the newly announced animated series, we know that a VR game is in development too. There is no word on when said game will be ready to launch, but if your stylings lean towards the theatrical, a stage play of Stranger Things is scheduled for later this year, as per Engadget.

The publication also points out that the Duffer Brothers have a rather full plate, with the pair working on a live-action Death Note series for Netflix. The platform has a lot of ground to make up with jaded anime fans, given how many live-action adaptations have been miss rather than hit. Hopefully the creators of Stranger Things can do one of the post popular manga/anime of all time justice.

Either way, if you’ve been hankering for more Stranger Things-related content, there is plenty on the way.
