Stranger Things season 4 is set to be released in 2022, and fans have been patiently waiting for it! Well, they’ve at least tried to be patient for it.

The Netflix original series is set to have its biggest season yet, but we still don’t have a release date for season 4. Fans were hoping that it would be released at the TUDUM event but the only thing we got was the third teaser video.

Things are starting to heat up though as season 4 comes to a close on production, and all kinds of Stranger Things discussions are happening. One of the talks going around, and really has been for the past year or so, are the possibilities of a Stranger Things spinoff series.

Will there be a Stranger Things spinoff series?

Over the past year or so there have been many discussions about the possibility of a Stranger Things spinoff series coming to Netflix in the near future. The Duffer Brothers never really commented on the speculations in the past, but we do know that they have an exact idea of when Stranger Things will be coming to an end.

In a recent interview at the Code Conference, co-CEO Ted Sarandos hinted at the idea of “spinoffs,” saying that Stranger Things is “a franchise being born.” It’s no secret that there have been discussions that Millie Bobby Brown could be the person to lead a spinoff series in the Stranger Things universe.

There are a few good options that the Duffer Brothers could go with when it comes to a spinoff, but the most intriguing one to me would be one about Eleven.

While at the conference, Sarandos also shared charts that displayed Netflix’s most popular series and movies to date. Bridgerton season 1 took the top spot as Stranger Things season 3 came in fifth place with a total of 67 million views. All of these stats are based on the first 28 days of being on the streaming service.

It’s been a long time since Stranger Things season 3 was released on Netflix. With that being said, you may want to rewatch season 3 before diving into the new season, and you have plenty of time to do so as we still don’t know the exact release date for season 4.

The Duffer Brothers are here to stay with Netflix for the foreseeable future, so the possibilities for a spinoff are extremely high, and I couldn’t be more excited for it.
