Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos has shared some details about future projects. As reported by Deadline, Sarandos was speaking at the Code Conference at Beverly Hilton.
While talking about the strong performance of Stranger Things season 3, Sarandos hinted at upcoming spinoffs. Millie Bobby Brown is expected to be the star of one of these spinoffs as part of her deal with Netflix. Sarandos didn’t reveal any details regarding the stories, characters, cast, or creative teams behind these spinoffs.
Netflix has shared quite a bit of information regarding Stranger Things season 4. During the recent Tudum event, the streaming service offered a sneak peek at a new location from the fourth season called the Creel House. Creel is an inmate at the Pennhurst Mental Hospital where he has been imprisoned for a murder he committed in the 1950s. Netflix also shared new footage from Stranger Things season 4 last month.
Stranger Things director Shawn Levy previously explained why the fourth season took so long. Levy said, “As much as it pains our viewers that it will have been so long, trust me, it pains Matt, Ross, and I more. It is a kind of perfect storm combination of COVID shutdown, slower pace of filming in COVID protocols and health protocols, which are necessary, and coincidentally we chose Season 4 to be by far — and I mean, by far, far, far — the most ambitious of the seasons.”
Stranger Things season 4 is set to debut on Netflix in 2022. The exact release date will be announced in the coming months.
