Stranger Things bosses tease new details about spin-off series

Stranger Things co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer have revealed new details about the highly-anticipated spin-off series.

Season four of the Netflix science fiction series has broken all records on the platform and become the most-watched English language TV series ever, beating Bridgerton for the top spot.

After the series success, the Duffer Brothers have teased brand new details about the spin-off admitting it’s going to be “1,000% different” to the main series.”

On the Happy Sad Confused podcast, they began: “It's not following… I've read these rumours that there's gonna be an Eleven spinoff, that there's gonna be a Steve and Dustin spinoff or that it's another number.”

"That's not interesting to [us] because we've done all that. “We've spent I don't know how many hours exploring all of that. So it's very different."

They also admitted that the spin-off might be their chance to hand the “baton” over to new creators and writers to work on new projects.

They added: "Hopefully we find that right person to pass the baton to while we go on to do new stuff."

The Duffer brothers have already started working on the new series and admitted that they wanted to make the show feel like a stand alone success, rather than be in its sister show’s shadow.

"I think actually we're going to start delving into that soon as we're winding down and finishing these visual effects, Matt and I are going to start getting into it," Ross said in an interview with Variety.

Matt continued: "The reason we haven't done anything is just because you don't want to be doing it for the wrong reasons, and it was just like: 'Is this something I would want to make regardless of it being related to Stranger Things or not?' And definitely.

“Even if we took the Stranger Things title off of it, I'm so, so excited about it. But it is not… It's going to be different than what anyone is expecting, including Netflix."

The fourth season saw a host of surprises unfold, including Kate Bush’s hit ‘Running up that Hill’ reach number one in the UK charts, 37 years after it was released.

In a climatic moment, Max (Sadie Sink) runs through the Upside Down to try and escape the terrifying Vecna and the 80’s hit is blasting through the dramatic scene.

Kate, 63, told Radio 4’s Women’s Hour that it’s been very “exciting” and “shocking” that the show has propelled her music.

She said: "It’s just extraordinary. I mean it’s such a great series, I thought that the track would get some attention.

"But I just never imagined that it would be anything like this. It’s so exciting. But it’s quite shocking really, isn’t it? I mean, the whole world’s gone mad."

Stranger Things season 4 part 2 is streaming now on Netflix.
