Los Angeles : ' Stranger Things ' animated series in the works. Netflix announces a new project.

An animated series set in the sci-fi world of Stranger Things is in development at Netflix, part of the streaming service's efforts to expand the hit series into a wide-ranging franchise.

Netflix announced the series in a statement released on Monday but gave no title or release date and few details.

'' We've always dreamed of an animated Stranger Things in the vein of the Saturday morning cartoons that we grew up loving,'' the Duffer brothers, creators of the original Stranger Things series, said in the statement.

Stranger Things debuted on Netflix in 2016 and became the company's most watched English Language series. The show tells the story of a group of teenagers battling unusual happenings in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana.

Netflix had previously announced that a Stranger Things spinoff show was in the works and a play that will debut at London's West End in November.

Netflix previously announced it is developing a spin-off of science fiction series Stranger Things as the streaming service works to build its biggest English language hit into a broad entertainment franchise.

The new franchise will be based on an original idea from Matt and Ross Duffer, the twins who created Stranger Things, Netflix said in a statement. No details on the story or characters were provided.

Netflix also announced a stage play set in the world of Stranger Things. The supernatural thriller starring Winona Ryder and David Harbour has set viewing records for Netflix, surpassing the Regency -era drama Bridgerton, as the company's most-watched English-Language show. [Reuters]
