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.

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.
