A stranger things the spin-off is in preparation! The Duffer Brothers confirmed the news on a recent episode of the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast.
The duo addressed rumors that the spin-off series would be based on the current cast members. “I’ve read these rumors that there’s going to be an Eleven spinoff, there’s going to be a Steve and Dustin spinoff or it’s some other number,” they said. “It’s not interesting to me because we’ve done all that. We spent I don’t know how many hours exploring it all. So it’s very different. They later added that the series would not only be “very different” but “1000% different”, via Variety.
The brothers shared that they were “really jazzed” by the spinoff and that the similarities between the two series will be in the “storytelling sensibility” instead of the main characters. Elsewhere in the interview, it was revealed that Season 5 of stranger things will be faster than season 4.
“For the first time, we don’t end things at the end of [Season] 4, so it’s going to move,” they said. “I don’t know if it’s going to go 100 miles per hour at the start of 5, but it’s going to go pretty fast. The characters will already be in action. They’re already going to have a goal and a motivation, and I think it’s going to take at least a few hours and make that [final] the season is really different.
