Though we’re nearing the inevitable end stranger thingsespecially with the announcement that Stranger things season 5 will be his last, it appears that it will not be the complete and utter ending of Upside Down! Recently, Matt and Ross Duffer, aka the Duffer Brothers, teased fans about a potential spinoff of the hit Netflix sci-fi series, but are still playing coyly with what it will be about and who it will follow.
In an email interview with diversity, they revealed that only Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) guessed through sheer luck what the new series will be about following the conclusion of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and the history of the Upside Down gang. Matt and Ross Duffer told the publication that they “have an idea for a spin-off” that makes them “super excited” but are keeping the details to themselves. They told the May release ahead of the Season 4 release:
“We haven’t told anyone about the idea, let alone written it, [but] We think everyone – including Netflix – will be surprised when they hear the concept because it’s very, very different. But somehow Finn Wolfhard – who is a crazy smart boy – correctly guessed what it would be about. But nobody knows except Finn!”
That got us thinking… what could the spin-off series be about? And who could it follow? Check out our three theories about potential stranger things Offshoots below!
Stranger Things Spinoff News and Update
Back in February when the Duffer brothers announced it Stranger things season 4 will be divided into two volumes, the duo revealed that there are “many more exciting stories to tell in the world of”.stranger thingsthey teased “new mysteries, new adventures, and new unexpected heroes,” which is certainly a nod to the upcoming spin-off, but they didn’t reveal too many details about what to expect… so we formed our own theories
1. Turn it upside down
One of our theories is that the new spin-off series will be based on Upside Down. We know… pretty far out considering there’s not much else besides creepy crawlies and monsters, but it could potentially follow 001’s journey to become Vecna and his descent into evil or haunt, like the Mind Flayer originated. Who knows, maybe there’s a whole monster upside-down society we just don’t know about, and what’s more unexpected than a Demogorgon hero?
2. A prequel to Stranger Things
Another theory we’ve pondered is the potential for the spin-off series to be set in an even earlier time, possibly even following the parents of our favorite curious kids as kids get caught up in mysterious mischief and adventure of their own. It was implied in Season 1 that nothing major had happened in the town of Hawkins for almost 30 years, so there’s potential to explore this story. There might even have been a murder cover-up or something more scary involving the Stanger Things adults. You never know, we might finally find out what made Mike’s father, Mr. Wheeler, such a cranky old man
3. Put into the future
Our third theory that we’re most excited about is that the spin-off will follow the children of our favorite surviving Upside Down gang members in the near future. Things might flare up again in Hawkins, maybe a gate or two have reopened, so with new disappearances and new monster appearances, it could be down to a new gang to take down the Upside Down again… although we’re sure the Duffer brothers will add some new twists and horrors to the series.
Whatever the spin-off will be about, we’re already certain that we’ll be strapped to our seats once it’s released.
