Obsessed with Stranger Things? Then you won’t want to miss this new Netflix series, The Boroughs.
The supernatural mystery comes from creators Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews. Matt and Ross Duffer, creators of Stranger Things, serve as executive producers on the show.
The Boroughs is set in a seemingly picturesque retirement community in the New Mexico desert, where a group of unlikely heroes must band together to stop an otherworldly threat from stealing the one thing they don’t have… time.
“We’ve been fans of Jeff and Will’s writing for a long time, and when they pitched us their idea for The Boroughs, we immediately knew they had something very special on their hands,” said the Duffer Brothers in a statement. “While the heroes in The Boroughs have a few more years on them than the kids from Stranger Things, they are a similarly lovable bunch of misfits, and we can’t wait for you to join them on an adventure that is at turns scary, funny, and deeply touching.”
Addiss and Matthews previously developed The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance for Netflix. They will serve as showrunners and executive producers on The Boroughs.
“We’re thrilled to be back at Netflix. Working alongside the Duffer Brothers (who are pretty good at making shows) and their team has been a dream come true. They bring the perfect balance of heart and horror to our story. We can’t wait for audiences around the world to unlock the dark mystery buried beneath the sunny facade of The Boroughs.”
Netflix greenlit The Boroughs for an eight-episode first season. We don’t have casting details or a projected release date just yet. So, check back to THS for more updates.
