Stranger Things will be a finite thing, which is great for those of us (myself included) who appreciate concise storytelling.
The co-creators, Ross and Matt Duffer, spoke with Vulture about this in a recent interview. They explained that they are already working on season three and looking ahead towards season four. They offer that they want the show to stop there, with season four standing as a firm conclusion.
They even dropped a little quote that might be a bit spoilery for those who really, really care about such things. Consider this your spoiler warning for the next line.
When asked what they intend to do in season four, Ross Duffer joked that the kids in Hawkins, Indiana, are “going to have to get the f— out of this town. It’s ridiculous!”
A location change could create a very different feel for Stranger Things, especially as we’ve come to really know the small town and its people.
The second season of the show, according to the creators, should be considered more like a movie sequel than the extension of a series. It’s supposedly going to be bigger and more intense.
We’ll see how it plays out. The second season of Stranger Things is set to debut on Netflix on October 27, 2017.
