Though season 4 is now officially over, Stranger Things isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Along with the next (and final) season set to air in 2024, creators the Duffer Brothers recently shared with The Hollywood Reporter they have many more Upside Down plans in the works, including a Stranger Things play.
Among five new projects — also including a Stranger Things spinoff series as well as a series adaptation of Stephen King and Peter Straub’s The Talisman, both for for Netflix — is a new stage play that will be set within the Stranger Things universe.
They didn’t reveal too much yet, only sharing that the play will be “set within the world and mythology of the show” and is currently in its development stage. It’s being produced by the Duffers’ newly created “Upside Down Pictures” company, along with Sonia Friedman, Stephen Daldry (who has worked on The Crown, Billy Elliot, The Reader) and Netflix. Daldry will be the director as well.
Here’s hoping it lands on Broadway!
The other upcoming projects as part of the Duffer Brother’s overall deal with Netflix include a live-action remake of the anime show Death Note and an original series from Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews, who created Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
