We haven’t even seen the second season of Stranger Things but the Duffer brothers have already announced that a third season is happening! And that’s not all, although this news may seem bittersweet, the Duffer brothers said they are aiming to end the series at a fourth season.
In an interview with Vulture (which you should go and read the whole thing), the brothers discussed their game plan.
“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross said. Matt added that at that point, the gang will be approaching college age, so their exploits will have to be different: “We just have to keep adjusting the story. Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”
Yeah, if the gang ran into interdimensional beings every year and fought with shady government agencies all the time, someone would have to stop and realize it’s getting weird.
I’m actually happy they won’t drag the series out. Despite loving the show and the characters, I wouldn’t want that world to get stale and deflate. It’s horrible when that happens. And I’m positive you can think of a few series you absolutely loved in the beginning and then started to drift away from.
Stranger Things season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix starting October 27.
