Fans are eager to return to the Upside Down, but a Stranger Things spin-off has sent viewers into overdrive. Sure, the hype around Stranger Things season 4 is palpable, but even the most cinematic installment of the sci-fi series yet isn't a match for the future of the franchise.
"Franchises are good, but what you want are hits,” Netflix’s Ted Sarandos said at the Code Conference on September 27, according to Deadline. He claimed the sensation is "a franchise being born" and even hinted that the Duffer Bros. universe isn't quite finished yet.
Now, after a few coy remarks, Sarandos hinted at a spin-off for the dystopian 80's-focused original. Considering the show has been viewed from 67 million accounts over 582 million hours—coming in second behind the regency romance Bridgerton—it's no surprise that Netflix heavyweights are eager to keep the momentum going.
So what does this mean? What will be the focus of the spin-off? Who will be the star? When will it air? SO! MANY! QUESTIONS!

Will there be a 'Stranger Things' spin-off?
While teasing the future of the hit show, fans began to suspect that Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the beloved Eleven, would be the main focus of the potential offshoot.
Deadline has further revealed that there have been talks of the 17-year-old taking the lead under the terms of her own Netflix deal. Obviously, we are anxious to see what the actress will have in store for us next, should this project come to fruition.

In the meantime, while we patiently wait for Stranger Things season 4 to premiere some time in 2022, be sure to catch the sci-fi queen in Enola Holmes, where Brown stars alongside Henry Cavill in a new twist on Sherlock Holmes.
We're keeping our fingers crossed for more MBB!
