'Stranger Things' Creators on a Possible Spin-Off: "We Have Some Ideas"

The Duffer brothers get candid about future plans.

Despite the fact that Stranger Things will wrap up after season 5, it’s quite possible that you’ll be seeing more of your favorite characters. The series’ creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, previously teased spin-off plans, and they recently shared more details about the show’s ending and future plans.

“Even with five, it’s going to feel like it’s ending a little early,” Matt told SFX. “We’re going to feel like we still have a lot more gas left in the tank. But I think that it’s better to end there with us wanting more. That’s why ending at five felt like the right move.”

He continued, “We haven’t told anyone our plans! Not even Netflix! We have some ideas. In terms of if we were to do any sort of a spin-off, or any continuation of Stranger Things, for us the bar was always, ‘Is the idea exciting enough that we feel the pull of wanting to do it again?’ I want to feel the pull of, ‘God, I really want to do this. I feel really, really excited about this.’ So that’s why we’re being careful about what that is and whether we move forward with it or not.”

Ross then revealed what it would take for them to actually create a spin-off, completely separate from the current series.

“The key for us is that it needs to feel like its own distinct thing, not that we’re just retreading what we’ve already done, because what would be the point of that? I do think we have something that could be pretty exciting. So we’ll see,” he said, adding that they’d plan to be “heavily involved.” However, they’d have someone else run the “day-to-day basis.”

Volume One of Stranger Things Season 4 premieres May 27 on Netflix.
