The plot of the series is of course being kept on the down low, however, Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer are saying it will be similar to Saturday morning cartoons.

THR reports that Sydney-based Flying Bark is handling production on the animated show, with Eric Robles leading the charge.

“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 realized has been absolutely thrilling,” the Duffer Brothers shared in a statement. “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 …”

Currently, it’s unknown if any of the live-action cast members will have voice roles in the new animated version.

This is just the latest entity in the growing franchise world of Stranger Things, following video games and the upcoming stage production, which is debuting on London’s West End.

Filming on the upcoming fifth and final season of Stranger Things is set to start this summer.
