The end is near for "Stranger Things," as the pop culture phenomenon is set to conclude with its fifth season, which enters production this year. Though fans need not worry, because series creators Matt and Ross Duffer confirmed they're working with Netflix to produce spinoffs of the beloved coming-of-age series. Now, we have confirmation that an offshoot has officially been ordered by the streamer. And if that weren’t exciting enough, it’ll mark a first for the franchise.

Netflix officially announced that an untitled adult animated series set within the world of "Stranger Things" is officially in the works. It's being developed by Eric Robles, who serves as executive producer on behalf of Flying Bark Productions. The Duffer Brothers will also act as EPs under their recently established Upside Down Pictures banner. Additionally, Shawn Levy, who also co-produces the parent show, does the same here as well alongside Dan Cohen by way of their 21 Laps imprint.
