In an exclusive interview with Vulture, the creators of Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things stated that the series will run for four seasons and then they are “out”.
Matt and Ross Duffer went on to say that “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.”
The brothers also cited the fact that by a fourth season the characters would be of college age (and would also quickly be escaping the 1980’s setting that is part of the charm of the series).
Ross hinted that the directing duo may be looking to follow in the footsteps of another famous sibling directing team: Joe and Anthony Russo, saying that “We’ve been talking to people like Joe Russo [of the Russo brothers], who’s, like, taking over the world while also making the biggest movie of all time [Avengers: Infinity War].”
Would Netflix continue the series without the creators? It’s possible, but as many genre television shows have learned in the past, sometimes it is better to leave when you’re on top.
