Netflix CEO hints at 'Stranger Things' spin-off for Millie Bobby Brown

Fans are waiting in eager anticipation of the upcoming fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things that will debut sometime in 2022. However, recently, the chief content officer at Netflix, Ted Sarandos, teased some interesting news regarding possible spinoffs that might star Millie Bobby Brown. 

The 17-year-old who plays Eleven in the series has signed a rumoured overall deal with Netflix, being the youngest actor to do so. The spinoff, which will most likely centre around her character, will be a part of the same deal. 

Brown is a very popular face on the streaming giant, having amassed massive success and popularity from Stranger Things as well as having played the titular character in Enola Holmes, alongside Helena Bonham Carter, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin and more. 

It’s part of a busy schedule for Brown, and the star will also be seen in the eponymous Netflix adaptation of Tess Brown’s The Girls I’ve Been. 

Brown’s overall deal with Netflix, according to insider Daniel Richtman, will include a lot of different projects, including a coveted action franchise. At the Code Conference in Los Angeles, Sarandos was caught hinting at a similar project. 

Sarandos said that the show was “a franchise being born” after talking about how the board were aiming for commercial and creative longevity. Sarandos also noted that Stranger Things, with its immense fanbase, seemed perfect for it. 

While the creators, the Duffer brothers, as well as the executive producer Shawn Levy, have had pretty interesting comments to make in the past regarding the same, we can only wait to see what the streamer has in store for our beloved show.
