In an in-length conversation with Seventeen, she conveyed her readiness with wanting to pack and leave on a high note with ‘Stranger Things.’

    “I’m definitely ready to wrap up. I feel like there’s a lot of the story that’s been told now, and we know of it, it’s been in our lives for a very long time. But I’m very ready to say goodbye to this chapter of my life and open new ones. I’m able to create stories myself that are important to me and focus on the bigger picture. But I’m really grateful [for that show],” said the ‘Stranger Things‘ actress.

    Millie Bobby Brown reportedly turned down the ‘Stranger Things‘ movie to branch out of the OTT space. She already has various projects lined up. But signing her commitment to Netflix might put her in situations of conflicting film schedules. Despite ending its five-season run on Netflix, there’s more to come from ‘Stranger Things.’ In addition to the spin-off movie, there have been plans to take the show to Broadway. But these plans will move forward without Millie Bobby Brown’s participation.

    Millie Bobby Brown is taking a break from Hollywood’s hullabaloo to focus on school. She has expressed a desire to leave the glitter of Hollywood behind. Currently, she wants to concentrate on a holistic and healthy life filled with learning. She said, “I’m really aware of how privileged I am to have the access to education and to learn more about the things that I want to learn about, and then help others in retrieving that education in communities and areas that young people aren’t able to access curriculums. It’s just a circle that keeps giving.
