Netflix Is Developing A ‘Stranger Things’ Animated Spinoff Series

According to Variety, Netflix is developing an animated series based on Stranger Things as a spinoff, in addition to the upcoming fifth and final season of the main show.

The details surrounding the new series are being kept under wraps, but it was developed by Eric Robles and Flying Bark Productions. Robles has previously created animated shows such as Random! Cartoons, Fanboy & Chum Chum, and Glitch Techs.

The Duffer brothers, who created Stranger Things, will executive produce the animated spinoff along with Robles, Shawn Levy, and Dan Cohen.

The Duffer brothers said in a statement that they have always dreamed of an animated Stranger Things series that resembles the Saturday morning cartoons they grew up watching:.

“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. 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…”

Netflix is also reportedly developing a live-action Stranger Things spinoff series, indicating that the streaming service plans to expand the franchise beyond the main series.
