Netflix has announced that they’re set to team up with Stranger Things creators The Duffer Brothers on a whole range of new upcoming projects.

Announced via Netflix’s Twitter account, the streaming giant revealed they’ll be working with Matt and Ross Duffer and their new production company Upside Down Pictures on a variety of new content.

“The Duffer Brothers have formed Upside Down Pictures, a new production company through which they will develop film and television projects as part of their overall deal with Netflix. Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the projects that are currently IN DEVELOPMENT,” they said.

The series which are currently in production include a live-action television adaptation of the Japanese manga and anime series Death Note, an adaptation of Stephen King and Peter Straub’s The Talisman and an original series from creators Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews called Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

In a statement about the new company (via Deadline), the brothers said it will allow them to create “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 news didn’t end there either, with a confirmation of more content from the Stranger Things universe.

Netflix also revealed that a “new stage play set within the world and mythology of Stranger Things” is also in the works and will be produced by Sonia Friedman, Stephen Daldry (The Crown) and Netflix.

The news of a Stranger Things play follows confirmation of a spin-off series of the hit show last month.

Speaking about the upcoming spin-off the pair said: “There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things, new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes.”

Stranger Things seasons 1-4 are now streaming worldwide on Netflix.
