Matt and Ross Duffer will be creating a spin-off series based on their mega hit Netflix show Stranger Things.

There will also be a new stage play "set within the world and mythology of Stranger Things" and an original series from creators Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews under the production company. 

“[Upside Down Pictures] aim to create the kind of stories that inspired the Duffers growing up - stories that take place at that beautiful crossroads where the ordinary meets the extraordinary, where big spectacle co-exists with intimate character work, where heart wins out over cynicism," the Duffer Brothers remarked in a statement.

Netflix's Co-chief executive officer and chief content officer Ted Sarandos expressed his excitement about their partnership with the Duffer Brothers and their production company.

"Matt and Ross are an exceptionally unique talent with a vision so crisp and clear. They are all about the details —  it’s no accident that Stranger Things has pierced the zeitgeist to become the epic pop culture phenomenon it is today. We’re excited to continue telling new stories with them as they grow Upside Down Pictures and to welcome Hilary as creative partner," he stated.

The Duffer Brothers recently created and produced the fourth season of Stranger Things, which has become Netflix's number one Most Popular English series of all time. It has the biggest premiere weekend on the streaming platform for an English-language TV show with 286.79 million hours viewed.
