Stranger Things 4 might not be coming to Netflix this summer, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t still return to Hawkins, Indiana for a new adventure of a different kind.
As we wait for the next season of Stranger Things and news of when exactly the season will arrive, Netflix has revealed plans to debut a new companion series of sorts in the form of Rebel Robin: Surviving Hawkins, a new fiction podcast series set within the same universe of the show!
This full-cast fiction podcast will welcome back Maya Hawke’s Robin, a breakout favorite from season 3, in a companion pod to the forthcoming Robin-centric novel, Stranger Things: Rebel Robin by author A.R. Capetta. Below we share everything we know so far about the upcoming podcast including its release date, cast and more!
Rebel Robin: Surviving Hawkins release date
As confirmed by Netflix during its Geeked Week event on June 9, Rebel Robin: Surviving Hawkins will debut on Tuesday, June 29, 2021. The six-episode series will then unfold weekly with new episodes dropping each week through early August.
Although we understand the disappointment in not getting a new season of Stranger Things this summer, the new scripted Rebel Robin promises to be a perfect way to still enjoy some new Stranger Things adventures this summer albeit in a different format than we’ve become accustomed to.
While the series does not appear to be coming to Netflix directly, you can catch new episodes everywhere you get your podcasts making it easily accessible to enjoy from your favorite podcast service and devices!
