Stephen King Says Stranger Things Character Yuri 'Deserves His Own Show'

Date:  June 6, 2022

Just like all of us horror legend Stephen King has also been watching Stranger Things 4. On Saturday, the writer tweeted out an idea for a spinoff show focused on one of this season's bad guys.

Stephen King wrote on Twitter, "I love that slimy, slinky Russian guy Yuri," King wrote. "He deserves his own show. Like BARRY, only Russian."

Yuri is played by actor Nikola Djuricko. He is described as "a seedy and unpredictable Russian smuggler who loves bad jokes, cold hard cash, and crunchy style peanut butter." In season 4, he is the middleman in a deal between Joyce and a prison guard named Enzo, tasked with helping Hopper in his escape from a Russian prison camp.

Stephen King is clearly a fan of the show. On Wednesday, he tweeted that, "The new season of STRANGER THINGS is really cool--as good or better than the previous three. There's even a CARRIE riff. Is it the whole season or is it another one of those that's broken into 2 parts? IMHO that's kind of lame."

The first seven episodes of Stranger Things season 4 arrived on May 27. The last two episodes from the two-part season will land on July 1.
