A Stranger Things spin-off could well be in the works according to Netflix boss Ted Sarandos.
Sarandos appeared at the Code Conference in Los Angeles, California, and spoke about the success of the streaming service, as well as its potential future.
In a discussion about 80s thriller Stranger Things, Sarandos said (via Deadline): “Franchises are good, but what you want are hits” before adding that the series is “a franchise being born” with spin-offs potentially in the works.
There have previously been rumours that a spin-off series starring Millie Bobby Brown - who plays the superpowered Eleven - could be in the making.
It’s not known whether there are any more planning, with nothing officially announced.
The fourth season of Stranger Things is set for release in 2022, after a series of production halts due to coronavirus.
It’s not known how long the series intends to continue on for, with the main cast initially being introduced to audiences as children in a coming-of-age storyline.
Kept under wraps as much as possible, Stranger Things has only released a handful of teaser clips to keep fans excited.
The most recent, which was released on Saturday as part of the TUDUM fan event, saw the introduction of the mysterious Creel House - where a series of mysterious events and murders has left it in a state of disrepair.
However, leading characters including Steve (Joe Keery), Dustin (Gaten Mattarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Max (Sadie Sink) break in to ‘look for clues’.
It’s believed the house is connected to a character played by Robert Englund, who shot to fame in the 80s as Nightmare On Elm Street villain, Freddy Krueger.
Stranger Things seasons one to three are available now on Netflix.
