Stranger Things Creators Address Those Millie Bobby Brown Spinoff Rumors

at .

Stranger Things is one of the biggest TV shows still on the air, so it makes sense that fans would be interested in new projects set in that universe.

We've known for a while now that the show is ending with its upcoming fifth season and that there are plans for spinoffs.

One spinoff we shouldn't expect is an Eleven-centric movie starring Millie Bobby Brown.

But that hasn't stopped tabloids from implying such a show was in the works.

The Sun and Daily Mail reported this week that Brown was offered $12 million to headline a movie and that the star declined the offer.

The reason was that the star was ready to move on from the franchise.

However, the official Stranger Things Writers Twitter account debunked the report.

"Yeah, there's nothing in this article that is true," the account wrote as it shared the Daily Mail article, while adding the following zinger:

"Don't know why we have to keep debunking this rumor but get those clicks you guys!!"

Admittedly, a Stranger Things sequel with Millie Bobby Brown would be a huge draw, but everything we've heard about Stranger Things Season 5 sounds like it will bring the show to a definite conclusion.

Matt and Ross Duffer also previously hinted that any spinoffs would not feature characters from the existing series.

"It's not following… I've read these rumors that there's gonna be an Eleven spinoff, that there's gonna be a Steve and Dustin spinoff or that it's another number," the Duffer Brothers said on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast. 

"That's not interesting to me because we've done all that. We've spent I don't know how many hours exploring all of that. So it's very different."

"The most important connective tissue I would say is the storytelling sensibility of it."

"There is story that connects to the Stranger Things world, but it really is more about how we're telling that story."

For now, the fifth and final season of Stranger Things is set to shoot this year, but a premiere date has not been established.

Stranger Things Quotes

Dear Billy, I don't know if you can even hear this. Two years ago, I would have said, 'That's ridiculous, impossible.' "But that was before I found out about alternate dimensions and monsters, so... I'm just going to stop assuming that I know anything. So much has happened since you left. Your dad was a total mess. He and my mom started getting into fights. Bad fights. I don't think he could stand being here without you. So he left. And he didn't leave Mom much. She's taken an extra job, and we moved to that lovely trailer park off Kerley. Basically, ever since you left, everything's been... A total disaster. And the worst part is, I can't tell anyone why you're gone. I can't tell them that you saved El's life. That you saved my life. I play that moment back in my head all the time. And sometimes I imagine myself running to you, pulling you away. I imagine that if I had, that you would still be here. And everything would be... ( sobs ) ...everything would be right again. I imagine that we... That we could've become friends. Good friends, like... like a real brother and sister. And I know that's stupid. You hated me.I hated you. But I thought that maybe... Maybe we could try again. But that's not what happened. I just... I stood there and I watched. For a while, I tried to be happy. Normal. But I... I think that maybe a part of me died that day too. And I haven't told anyone this. I... I just can't. But I had to tell you. Before it's too late. If you can even hear this. I really hope that you can. I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry, Billy. Love, your shitty little sister, Max.
