STRANGER THINGS Will likely Go Beyond Season 4 According to The Producers
Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer have previously stated that the hit Netflix series would only go to season four and then end. Well, it's looking like plans have changed. The Duffers and producer Shawn Levy are now saying that the series will likely go beyond four seasons, Levy recently told EW:
“Hearts were heard breaking in Netflix headquarters when the Brothers made four seasons sound like an official end, and I was suddenly getting phone calls from our actors’ agents. The truth is we’re definitely going four seasons and there’s very much the possibility of a fifth. Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely.”
Look, as long as they have an end game and they get to tell the full story that they set out to tell, that's all that matters. I just don't want to see a bunch of pointless filler episodes in the process.
When previously talking about bringing the series to an end Ross Duffer said, “Everything changes as we move forward so we’ll see,” and Matt Duffer added, “I want it to have a really finite ending. I don’t want it to be one of those shows that runs out of gas and they lose it because they’re losing interest. You wanna end when you’re on top.”
As a fan of the series, of course, I'm excited that we will most likely get at least one extra season more than what we thought they were planning. I just love these characters and I can't wait to see where the journey of this series take them.
One thing is for sure, they will be battling crazy looking creatures along the way! When talking about one of the main monsters we'll see in Season 2 that was teased in the trailer, Duffer said:
“There’s an H.P. Lovecraft sort of approach, this inter-dimensional being that is sort of beyond human comprehension. We purposely don’t want to go too much into what it is or what it wants.”
The series features the return of Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine. New cast members include Sadie Sink (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers), Brett Gelman (Blunt Talk, The Other Guys), newcomer Linnea Berthelsen, Sean Astin (The Goonies) and Paul Reiser (Aliens).
Stranger Things Season 2 is set to premiere on October 27th! To catch up on all of our Stranger Things news, click here.
