Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps, which has an overall deal at Netflix, are also exec producing.
Matt and Ross Duffer said: “We’ve always dreamed of an animated Stranger Things in the vein of the Saturday morning cartoons that we grew up loving, and to see this dream realised has been absolutely thrilling.
“We couldn’t be more blown away by what Eric Robles and his team have come up with. The scripts and artwork are incredible and we can’t wait to share more with you! The adventure continues…”
