Stranger Things ending with Season 4? Not anymore.
Co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer, along with EP Shawn Levy have ripped up the original plan to conclude the Netflix drama in four seasons, telling EW that Season 5 is the new end date target.
“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.”
Adds Ross Duffer:
If we’re able to, there will be at least four, there could be more. I think there’s going to come a point where why aren’t these people leaving Hawkins? Like we’re going to stretch credibility. It wasn’t intended to be a seven-season thing.”
Adds Matt Duffer:
“It’s not built to sustain that as a narrative. After it became successful, we had one of those big meetings with Netflix over dinner and they were like ‘We don’t want this going on that long.’ They were very supportive of it. It’s stupid to put an end date on it right now because we don’t know.”
As previously noted, Stranger Things has already been renewed for Season 3, slated to release in 2019.
