While the Duffers will be heavily involved, the duo have indicated they want to team up with another creative visionary to bring the spinoff to life.
“The idea, at the end of the day, is to pass the baton to someone else, someone who hopefully is really talented and passionate,” Matt said. “Even the idea of Ross and I, say, doing a pilot and leaving it just seems silly to me. You really have to be there from start to finish. I think we need to find a partner to help us with that. that .”
Before arriving at this new show, of course, the stranger things the saga must end. The Duffer Brothers suggested that fans feeling drained from the oversized fourth season will be relieved when season five finally airs, at least initially.
“The only reason we don’t expect it to be that long is because if you watch it, it takes almost two hours before our children are really drawn into the supernatural mystery,” said Matt about season four. “You get to know them, you see them in their lives, what they struggle with, adjusting to high school, etc. Steve is trying to get a date, all of that. None of that is obviously going to happen in the first two episodes of [season five].”
