Stranger Things spinoff 

In an interview with ET Online, actor Gaten Matarazzo stated that a Dustin-Steve spinoff would be good if it were in a weird niche format, something like WandaVision type thing or like a web series type thing where on YouTube, there are weekly episodes of little hijinks they get into, like every now and again, like a skit show. He added that he doesn't know if a Dustin and Steve full-series spinoff is sustainable because what would the show revolve around if it was just the two of them. 

The young actor had also spoken about the new season of Stranger Things and stated that it has definitely matured and that the creators want the show to mature with their kids. He added that as they are growing older as people, they have to grow older as characters too and when confronted with this issue, they have to embrace it and use it to their advantage. Matarazzo concluded by saying that working with the creators and writers is just exceptional and always has been.
