Netflix has announced that Stranger Things is expanding – with Maya Hawke’s character Robin getting her own spin-offs.
Viewers didn’t meet the character until season three, but she’s already a fan favorite and a key member of the Scoops Troop.
But when she’s not selling ice cream, Robin seems to be busy – and is way ahead of her time by starting a podcast.
Surviving Hawkins is a six-part special series in which Robin interviews her schoolmates as they talk about the bizarre goings on around Hawkins High.
The episodes will tie directly to a book, Rebel Robin, which is also about her.
In October 1983, two years before she hit the main course, she overheard talking to someone about the missing Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) and that Hawkins was a “monster”.
The episodes will be released on June 29th.
What happened to Robin from Stranger Things in season 3?
We meet Robin in season three as Steve’s (Joe Keery) snappy employee at the seaman’s ice cream parlor Scoops Ahoy!
Viewers learn that she is going to Hawkins High with him, but walks in a different crowd. Steve is one of the cool kids while being a nervous underdog.

Even so, they form a dream team, and alongside Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Erica (Priah Ferguson), she becomes an indispensable member of the Scoops troop.
When they discover that Russian spies are using the Starcourt Mall as a cover, they go in search of answers.
She later confesses to Steve that she is gay.
In the final showdown, Robin’s quick thinking helps the group escape the Mind Flayer who destroys the mall in the process.
Together with Steve they begin to work in a video store.
