Millie Bobby Brown came to fame around the world thanks to her stint as Eleven in Stranger Things.

While we’re all waiting for season four of the Netflix sci-fi drama to drop, it has been claimed that the actress could be landing her own spin-off from the series.

And we wouldn’t totally be mad about that.

According to We Got This Covered, the 17-year-old has reportedly renewed her contract with the streaming platform.

The publication also states that one of the terms in the new paperwork is that she’ll get her own show based on the popular series.

However, as much as we’d all love to see Eleven taking on more monsters in the Upside Down, nothing has been announced by Netflix.

Bosses have yet to share a concrete release date for the upcoming series, which also stars Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard and Noah Schnapp.

We’ve also been left in the dark on what to expect from the new episodes, but they may focus on Jim Hopper’s (David Harbour) return to Hawkins after the season three finale cliffhanger.

Spilling the beans on what to expect in a chat with Us Weekly at the beginning of the year, Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin Henderson, promised the scariest series yet.

Summing the whole thing up in one word, the 18-year-old simply said: ‘Yikes’.

‘I think most would probably say it’s the scariest [season] out of the previous three, which I love because it’s very fun to film.’

We’re totally not ready.

Stranger Things was initially thought to be returning to Netflix around the beginning of this year, but production was halted for a period of time due to the coronavirus pandemic, as much of the world went into lockdown.

Most of us took the time to climb back into bed and binge on as many shows and films as possible.

But director Shawn Levy told Collider that writers and creators Matt and Ross Duffer used that time to pen and polish up the entire script, ready for filming to begin.

‘I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD,’ he previously told Collider.

‘But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before so the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Netflix and Millie Bobby Brown for a comment.
