‘Stranger Things’ star Finn Wolfhard admits he accidentally ruined the show’s spin-off
stranger things Star Finn Wolfhard recently recalled the time he accidentally guessed the plot of the spin-off series planned by the Duffer Brothers.
Finn, who plays Mike Wheeler in Netflix’s hit horror and sci-fi series, admitted to nearly spoiling the spin-off plot while on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“We were on the set stranger things 4and we were all talking about whether there was going to be – like joking, “Oh, they’re all gonna take us back in 20 years, and we’re all gonna [be] big and old,’ that stuff,” Wolfhard told host Jimmy Fallon.
Much to the Duffer Brothers’ surprise, Finn correctly guessed the spinoff’s plot. “And then they pulled me out…and said, ‘That’s the idea. Who told you? and I was like, ‘Nobody,'” he said.
Finn continued, “And they were like, ‘What do you mean? Did you just make it up?’ and I was like, ‘Well, no, I just thought that would be a cool way to expand.’ It was really funny, and they were like, ‘Okay, well…don’t tell anyone.'”
In June 2022, the Duffer Brothers clarified that the upcoming spin-off will explore a plot unlike anything the series has done before.
Meanwhile, the Stranger Things cinematic universe will expand with an upcoming six-hour anime spinoff.
Stranger Things: Tokyo follows “video game-loving twin brothers living on the outskirts of 1980s Tokyo” who find themselves in the Upside Down.
