Netflix has ordered a straight-to-series, untitled animated series set within the Stranger Things universe.
Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer say that the animated series will be in the vein of “Saturday morning cartoons,” but specific plot details for the series are being kept under wraps. It’s also unclear if any of the Stranger Things cast will have voice roles in the animated series. The Duffer brothers will also executive produce the series alongside their Stranger Things collaborator, Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps.
Matt and Ross Duffer said in a statement: “We’ve always dreamed of an animated Stranger Things in the vein of the Saturday morning cartoons that we grew up loving, and to see this dream realized has been absolutely thrilling. We couldn’t be more blown away by what Eric Robles and his team have come up with — the scripts and artwork are incredible, and we can’t wait to share more with you! The adventure continues …”
In addition to the upcoming fifth and final season of the original series, the Duffer brothers recently announced a London stage show, Stranger Things: The First Shadow, and have another untitled live-action spinoff of the flagship series in the works.
