So, if you're Christmas shopping for a Stranger Things fan, be on the lookout for those.

Expanding upon its Stranger Things universe, the streaming service is teaming up with publisher Penguin Random House on a worldwide publishing deal for a series of books based on the Duffer Brothers popular show, Deadline reported.

First up is Stranger Things: World Turned Upside Down: The Official Behind-The-Scenes Companion, which is exactly what it sounds like.

The first of these books will be a prequel novel that will give the audience the back story for Eleven's mother, Terry Ives. Meanwhile, the prequel tie-in novel is ideal for everyone impatient for Stranger Things season 3, which will likely not hit Netflix screens until early 2019 at best.

Another book, a prequel due out in early 2019, will tell the story of Eleven's mother and how the MKUltra experiments led to Eleven being born with her abilities.

A federal appeals court in Washington agreed and upheld another court order blocking the suspect's transfer to another country's custody.

The new novel, which has yet to be named, will explore Terry's" "intersection with the MKUltra program" and we'll "get to know and love her in a whole new way'. Gwenda Bond, best known for writing YA books about intrepid DC Comics reporter Lois Lane, will pen the novel.

Fans of Stranger Things are going to be very happy to hear that there are a whole heap of books on the horizon, one of which is a prequel novel.

Later in 2019, several as-yet-untitled books are planned for release.

Sounds absolutely awesome. We'll let you know more about it when we get it.

The books' initial release will be handled by Del Rey Books, Random House Children's Books, Cornerstone Publishing, and Penguin Random House Children's UK.
