As aforementioned, David Harbour recently talked about a spin-off series of the popular Netflix show. He told GQ: “I think as soon as the show ends, or maybe six months before it ends, you’ll be hearing about whatever spin-offs they have planned.
He continued: “At this point, I think Hopper is a character that can exist independent of me. If they wanna go back in time, forward in time… I’d love to see another actor play Hopper, and see what they can bring to it.” “He could pull off being as handsome as I was at 20.”
Even the Duffer Brothers seem enthusiastic about a spin-off series. They told SFX in a conversation:
“We have some ideas. In terms of if we were to do any sort of spinoff, or any continuation of Stranger Things, for us the bar was always ‘Is the idea exciting enough that we feel the pull of wanting to do it again?’”“I want to feel the pull of ‘God I really want to do this. I feel really, really excited about this.’ So that’s why we’re being careful about what that is and whether we move forward with it or not.”“The key for us is that it needs to feel like its own distinct thing, not that we’re just retreading what we’ve already done,” further teasing: “I do think we have something pretty exciting, so we’ll see.”

The Brothers later made this remark in a conversation with Variety:
“We do have an idea for a spinoff that we’re super excited about but we haven’t told anyone the idea yet, much less written it. We think everyone — including Netflix — will be surprised when they hear the concept, because it’s very, very different.”
Tens of millions of fans the world over love the show Stranger Things and many want the legacy of the show to continue after season 5. Perhaps a spin-off series is a great idea.
