A Stranger Things Prequel Novel Is on the Way, and the Teens Might Just Save Publishing

First, books were adapted into shows, and now shows are adapted into books. According to Deadline, the latest pop-culture phenomenon to get a print canon is Stranger Things, as Netflix has signed a deal with Penguin Random House to deliver a new line of print options for fans. The first two to arrive will be a companion reader with behind-the-scenes content (called Stranger Things: World Turned Upside Down: The Official Behind-the-Scenes Companion) and a “hardcover gift book for young readers,” both scheduled for fall releases. Then, next spring fans can look forward to a prequel novel, which will focus on Eleven’s mom and the top-secret government MKUltra program that turned her daughter into a weapon of the state, followed by additional novels for both adults and kids to be released next year. Season three of Stranger Things doesn’t have a premiere date yet.
