Matt and Ross Duffer, the creator brothers of that global phenomenon called ‘Stranger Things’ claim to have rope for a while. In fact, they already have plans to continue exploring this universe. in which the series ends with a spin-off. A new series that they are developing in parallel to season 5.
It is not yet officially announced by the platform as they are still developing the idea (and Netflix likes to announce things when it is something more solid). A concept that Finn Wolfhard came up with, the young actor who plays Mike, who one day went to talk to them about something that had occurred to him. It must have been so shocking or interesting that they were left with the buzz, as they say.

What it will turn on, they have not revealed, but the creators of ‘Stranger Things’ they are clear that first they want the final season to be almost finished to get to it:
“There’s a version of it running in parallel [a la temporada 5], but they will never roll in parallel. I think we’re going to start digging into it as soon as we’re wrapping up and finalizing those visual effects, Matt and I will start going into it.”
For his part, Matt explains:
“The reason we haven’t done anything is just because you don’t want to do it for the wrong reasons, and I was like, ‘Is this something I would want to do regardless of whether it’s related to Stranger Things or not?’ And, absolutely. Even if we take the title ‘Stranger Things’ away from it, I’m really, really excited about it. But this is not… It’s going to be different than what everyone is expecting, even Netflix.”
Considering that ‘Stranger Things’ is one of Netflix’s biggest hits, it was quite clear that they were not going to miss an opportunity to continue exploiting this fantastic and nostalgic world.
