Stranger Things Creators Promised That Season 4 Won’t Be The Final Series
The Duffer Brothers have promised Stranger Things won’t end after the hotly-anticipated season four, so let’s all just relax a minute before we lose our minds.
Co-creators Matt and Ross have opened up on the future of the Netflixsci-fi drama, insisting that they have the full story planned out and there will be at least one more series after the next one.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Ross said:
Season four won’t be the end. We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The coronavirus pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story.- Ross Duffer
When asked about where filming was at, Ross said, “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.”
Matt added, “We’ve had a lot more time to work on the scripts. For the first time, we have all the scripts written and we’re able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments.”
It comes after Natalia Dyer, who plays Nancy Wheeler, spoke about how the break in production due to Coronavirus could have actually helped the show in the long run.
When asked whether there would be nine episodes, Dyer responded with, “It appears to be.” By all accounts, this is down to the fact that there were nine scripts, and nothing especially official.
Furthermore, Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington in the show, claimed the fourth installment is much more sinister than any that have come before.
Speaking to Total Film, he said:
"I think that this year – and I know I say this every single year – but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark. Oh man, it’s pretty amazing – the Duffer brothers have really done it again."
