“His family finds that a fresh start isn’t so easy… and the shadows of the past have a very long reach,” it reads.

The new stage production will be directed by Stephen Daldry, best known for Billy Elliot and has been penned by Kate Trefry, a co-producer and writer on the sci-fi series.

The creators of the Netflix series, The Duffer Brothers will act as creative producers on the show.

Matt and Ross Duffer said: “We are beyond excited about Stranger Things: The First Shadow. Collaborating with the brilliant Stephen Daldry has been nothing short of inspiring, and Kate Trefry has written a play that is at turns surprising, scary, and heartfelt.

“You will meet endearing new characters, as well as very familiar ones, on a journey into the past that sets the groundwork for the future of Stranger Things. We’re dying to tell you more about the story but won’t – it’s more fun to discover it for yourself. Can’t wait to see you nerds in London!”

The producers also tease that the stage production “will take you right back to the beginning of the Stranger Things story – and may hold the key to the end.”
