‘Stranger Things’ won’t end with season 4, creators say
In a recent interview, Matt and Ross Duffer — the creators of “Stranger Things” — said that they already know how and when the Netflix series will end.
The Duffer brothers have stayed busy during the pandemic.
Even though filming is still stopped for now, the creators of the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that they have been using the extra time to continue working on the show’s upcoming fourth season.
“[The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show,” Ross Duffer told THR. “Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story.”
With that in mind, the Duffer brothers have already decided how and when the show will end — and it doesn’t seem like the end is coming any time soon.
“Season four won’t be the end,” Ross Duffer confirmed to THR, adding, “We know what the end is, and we know when it is.”
However, the show’s status is still up in the air for now, as filming has not yet resumed. The new season had been in production for a month when it was stopped by the COVID-19 pandemic in March, according to People magazine.
The cast had been told that production would tentatively begin again on Sept. 17, the Deseret News previously reported. However, the Duffer brothers did not confirm when filming would start back up.
“Everyone’s excited to get back to work, but the priority is the safety of the cast and crew, and that will dictate when we go back,” said Ross Duffer, according to THR.
But the extra time has given the Duffer brothers more time to work on the scripts for this season, which has allowed them to “look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments,” Matt Duffer told THR.
Season 3 of “Stranger Things,” which dropped on Netflix in July of last year, has been nominated for five Emmys and also had the largest viewership number for a Netflix original series or movie during the first days after its release, according to People.
