The fifth and final season of Stranger things is coming in 2024, but it won’t be the last project set in the show’s universe. Stranger things creators Mat Duffer and Ross Duffer recently confirmed they plan to develop a spin-off sooner rather than later. In a funny turn of events, Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) is the only actor from the beloved series who knows what the spin-off is all about. Apparently, the young star guessed the premise and recently shared it with Jimmy Fallon The tonight show that he was sworn to secrecy.
“We were filming on set Stranger Things 4 and we were all talking about whether there was, like, jokingly, ‘Oh, they’re all going to have us back in 20 years and we’re all going to be fat and old,’ things like that,” Wolfhard shared. “And then I thought, ‘But if you guys are really going to do a spin-off, it should be this…’ And then I said it, and the Duffers looked at each other and looked at me and they were like, ‘Can can we talk to you?’ And then they pulled me off and said, “That’s the idea. Who told you?” and I was like ‘No one’ and they were like ‘What do you mean? Did you just figure it out?’ and I thought, ‘Well, no, I just thought that would be a cool way to expand.’ It was really funny and they were like, ‘Okay, well… don’t tell anyone.'”
How will Stranger things End?
The Duffers recently revealed that their pitch for their yet-to-be-filmed fifth season was a tearjerker.
“Listen. It’s our process, but it’s like we’re really trying to focus on one season at a time,” Ross Duffer previously told The cover. “We have a sketch for season 5 and we pitched it to Netflix and they really responded well to it. I mean it was hard. It’s the end of the story. I saw executives crying I’ve never seen before crying and it was wild And it’s not just about the story but the fact that it’s like oh my god this thing that has defined so much of our lives these Netflix people who have been with us from the beginning have been, seven years now, and it’s hard to imagine the journey coming to an end.”
