Stranger Things is coming to an end soon, but the franchise will continue on in spin-offs, games, and other forms of media. So, when there were rumors about an Eleven spin-off, it seemed very likely that Netflix was working on something like this. It doesn’t look like that will happen, though.
Stranger Things made its young actors and actresses famous. Millie Bobby Brown is probably the most well-known of all the younger cast members. Her role as Eleven is one of the most famous parts of the show, and season after season, she has been praised for how vulnerable and emotional she is in it. Brown’s popularity keeps growing as she takes on more roles, but Eleven is still her best-known role.
When a magazine said that Brown was working on a spin-off of “Eleven,” the Stranger Writers Twitter account set the record straight. The answer from the writers was a simple “Not true.” The Duffer Brothers have talked about a separate spin-off in the past. Stranger Things: Tokyo, an anime based on the show, will bring the Upside Down to Japan. When strange things start happening in their neighborhood in the 1980s, two twin brothers who live on the edge of Tokyo and love video games will go on the adventure of a lifetime. It’s not clear how the series will connect to the main TV show or if any of the actors from Hawkins will move to animation.
Millie Bobby Brown will be back as Eleven in a new Stranger Things spin-off, which will be entirely separate from that other spin-off. https://t.co/jbhYIMuXO5— GIANT FREAKIN ROBOT (@GFRobot) February 1, 2023
Brown has also talked about the spin-off of Stranger Things, saying that she is ready for her time on Stranger Things to be over. Brown said she’s ready to focus on her popular Enola Holmes series, where she plays Sherlock Holmes’s curious younger sister. But Brown said she would help any new young actresses who join the Stranger Things franchise get used to being famous.
Stranger Things season 5 will start shooting this year, but not much is known about it. We don’t know what will happen to Eleven, or if she will even live through the events of the fifth season. Brown has been working on the show for almost eight years, so it’s not surprising that she’s ready to move on. The idea that the cast will take part in a spin-off seems unlikely. There are a lot of young actors in the cast. If they want to make a career out of acting, they probably need to take on different kinds of roles. At the end of Stranger Things, most of the characters will probably get a proper send-off and the end of their emotional arcs.
