Stranger Things is the biggest franchise Netflix has now and the series is now moving its tentacles into the world of books. The series will tell the story of Terry Ives, Eleven’s mother, who was the subject of the horrific experiments, which ended up giving the daughter supernatural powers. Terry Ives has made an appearance in the Stranger Things series and the book will tell her story.
The book will be set during the MKULTRA program, something that was real, and the US had to finally shut it down because it didn’t do what it was supposed to, and ultimately created several controversies for everybody involved. This becomes the second Netflix series that’s talking about the MKULTRA program, one of the most controversial programs to be carried out by any Government. Netflix had earlier made a documentary, Wormwood, which was the fictionalised version of a doctor who was closely associated during the initial stages of the series.
Meanwhile, the third season of Stranger Things is set to reach the streaming platforms sometime in 2019, which gives fans enough time to devour the books and wait for the next tranche of episodes.
