Even Vecna couldn’t ruin this avalanche of good news.
Stranger Things–which has enjoyed a record-setting Season 4 on Netflix–was standing tall at this week’s Emmy Award nominations.
The horror-s/f juggernaut was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards–with the only downside being no noms for the cast members. The nominations did, however, include nods for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup, Outstanding Special Visual Effects and Outstanding Stunt Performance.
But, not wanting to rest on their laurels, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer are already preparing for the show’s fifth and final season. First up, when will Season 5 debut?
“It depends on who you ask,” Matt Duffer said. “That’s what we’re still figuring out. If you ask our AD and line producer, they want more time for production. Our post-production supervisor wants more time for post-production.”
So, Duffer said, “it’s going to be a big discussion. How long does everybody get? The more you shorten production, the more you shorten post-production, the more things get compromised.”
It boils down to a matter of balance, Duffer said. “I’m sure we’ll figure out what that line is,” he added, “but my whole thing was I was never super-worried.” Tell that to the anxious fan base.
