This is not a drill people. Everyone’s favourite sci-fi show, Stranger Things, could be getting a Hopper Spin-off! The Netflix Original is currently working on its fourth season, and while the Duffer Brothers have promised it won’t be the last, it looks like we also have a spin-off heading to the streaming service!

Who would have thought we would be here? We all believed Hopper had died after THAT season 3 ending. But the Valentines teaser trailer left us all relieved as Hopper was alive and kicking! So what better way to honour the invincible man by giving him his own Netflix show?! Reports suggest that David Harbour’s character will have his own show, as Hopper has become one of the standouts of the series. Could it focus on Hopper in the future, or could we be seeing how he became a police officer? Or the tragedy he went through with his daughter? We can’t wait!

And that’s not all. Netflix has been toying with a number of ideas, as Stranger Things is one of the most popular originals on the platform. The company has also been considering a feature-length movie to tie up the series once it finally comes to an end (we hope it never does). But sources have suggested that the giant is swaying more towards a Hopper spin-off over a movie. Could we please have both?!

All we know is that the creators of Stranger Things, the famous Duffer Brothers,  have revealed that they have tons of ideas. Season 4 was rumoured to be the last, but it seems the brothers changed their mind. Millie Bobby Brown recently spoke to Glamour Magazine to suggest her idea of having Eleven and Mike marry and live happily ever after. She also suggested that she trusts the Duffer Brothers to perfectly write the ending to the show. Amazing!

Let’s remember not to get too excited though. The coronavirus pandemic is still affecting production, meaning Season 4 has been pushed back until 2021 at the earliest. With new seasons planned, and a possible spin-off and movie, we could be waiting a very long time!
