Stranger Things Universe Expands With Netflix Animated Series: ‘The Adventure Continues’

Stranger Things will animate the Upside Down with a new series that’s in the works at Netflix.

As Matt and Ross Duffer continue to plan for the future of the franchise beyond the fifth and final season of the mothership show, the streaming giant announced an animated series is currently in the works. It will be inspired by the Saturday morning cartoons the Duffers used to watch as kids.

Eric Robles, who worked on RoboCop: Alpha Commando, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, and Glitch Techs, will executive produce the project.

Plot details are under wraps beyond the fact that it’s set within the world of Stranger Things. The Duffers, as well as Shawn Levy and 21 Laps (the production company that works on Stranger Things), are also executive producing.

“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,” the Duffers said in a joint statement. “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…”
