Netflix is reportedly working on a Stranger Things musical

This would be incredible.

Netflix is said to be working on a Stranger Things musical following the massive success of the use of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill in season four.

Insiders say the streaming platform is planning a “live theatrical, musical or comedic performance”.

According to The Sun, it will be a Broadway-style show based on the plot of the hit sci-fi thriller.

After being used in its soundtrack, Running Up That Hill experienced a global resurgence in popularity.

On Friday, the ’80s song  smashed records as it claimed the top spot in the UK singles chart.

It became the longest time taken for a song to reach number one – securing its place 37 years after.

Since Stranger Things was released in May, streams for Running Up That Hill have surged by 153 per cent on Spotify.

Speaking about the success on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Kate said: “It’s just extraordinary. I mean it’s such a great series, I thought that the track would get some attention.

“But I just never imagined that it would be anything like this. It’s so exciting. But it’s quite shocking really, isn’t it? I mean, the whole world’s gone mad.

“What’s really wonderful, I think, is this is a whole new audience who, in a lot of cases, they’ve never heard of me and I love that.

“The thought of all these really young people hearing the song for the first time and discovering it is, well, I think it’s very special.”

The singer revealed she has always been a fan of the hit show, but now it really “holds a special place” in her heart.

On Tuesday, Netflix shared a trailer for Volume 2 of season 4, which drops on 1 July.

In the teaser, we see Eleven prepare for the battle of her life with the evil villain Vecna.

Meanwhile, Mike, Lukas, Dustin, Will and Max are gearing up to save Hawkins once again – with Steve, Nancy, Robin and new fan favourite Eddie ready to give them a helping hand.
