Stranger Things has attracted a huge fanbase, following its success on a global level as one of Netflix’s most popular original series since it originally debuted in 2016.

The series was renewed for a fifth and final season in February 2022.

Netflix previously announced plans for a live-action spinoff series and a stage show in July 2022, with the Duffers forming Upside Down Pictures at that time.

No updates are available about the live-action spinoff, as the Duffers have cleared previously, that it would not focus on characters like Eleven or Steve Harrington.

However, the stage show would take place in Hawkins in 1959 and would debut in London’s West End.

The Duffers are also working on a live-action TV version of the Japanese manga and anime series Death Note.
