It looks like Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo is pretty keen on the idea of doing a Dustin and Steve Stranger Things spinoff series.
He revealed this during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, and I actually really like the idea.
The last season of Stranger Things did set the two of them up as being really good friends.
Dustin and Steve spent most of the season together, and you could just tell that they actually really enjoyed each other’s company.
Both characters have gone through a lot of stuff and they’ve really grown over the course of this show.
I mean, Steve started off as being the kind of formulaic school bully, and he’s actually turned into something of a hero.
As for Dustin, well he’s gone from being a proper nerd to being a proper cool nerd, and one who’s always trying to solve problems and save people.
Gaten Matarazzo Would Love To Do A Dustin And Steve Stranger Things Spinoff Series
Here’s what Matarazzo had to say about wanting to do a Stranger Things spinoff series:
I think a Dustin-Steve spinoff would be good if it were in, like, a weird niche format. Like, they didn’t do a full show of it,” Matarazzo said. “…like a WandaVision type thing or like a web series type thing where on YouTube, there’s weekly episodes of little hijinks they get into, like every now and again, like a skit show. That’d be great. You kind of break that format….I don’t know if a Dustin and Steve full-series spinoff is sustainable. What are they going to do for a whole season, just them?
I really do love the idea of Steve and Dustin getting their own spinoff series.
However, I’m not entirely sure where the show would go.
