Stranger Things fans still have a little while to wait before Volume 2 of the hit show’s fourth season comes out. The show has been a massive hit worldwide. It appears, Netflix is planning to take a live Stranger Things themed musical to the stage after the success of Kate Bush’s music in its latest series.
Executives at the streaming platform have reportedly been granted a trademark for ‘live theatrical, musical or comedic performance’ amid their plans. According to The Sun, the Broadway-style musical will be a live theater performance based on the hit supernatural thriller series.
Netflix has reportedly filed documents with UK’s Intellectual Property Office for trademark protection for the show, as well as food and drink products, including gum. Their apparent venture into music comes after the fourth series of Stranger Things saw Running Up That Hill soar to number one in the UK charts after being featured.
In the show, Running Up That Hill happens to be grieving teen Max Mayfield’s (Sadie Sink) favorite song, and it unexpectedly saves her life in episode four. Since the much-anticipated latest installment of Stranger Things hit Netflix in May, streams for Running Up That Hill have surged by 153 per cent on Spotify.
Kate Bush recently revealed in a rare interview that her son Albert, 23, things it is ‘pretty cool’ after her song Running Up That Hill was featured in the show. Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour, Kate, 63, also discussed her love/hate relationship with technology, saying she now uses an ‘ancient phone’ in order to avoid being bombarded with emails while she’s out.
