Stranger Things creators the Duffer brothers say they plan to conclude the hit Netflix series after four seasons.
In an interview with Vulture, Matt and Ross Duffer confirmed that Season 3 has already been greenlit but that it could go at least one season more. “We think it will be a four season thing and then out,” Ross said.
Matt Duffer added that “We just have to keep adjusting the story,” and that the struggle will be to keep the conflict interesting with each season as he’s not sure if they “can justify something bad happening to them [the characters] once a year.”
Season 2 of Stranger Things hits Netflix on October 27, with a new trailer unveiled at Comic-Con last month. According to the Duffer brothers, this season centers on Will, boy who disappeared into the Upside Down dimension last season, and the repercussions of his return. “We wanted to push things a bit,” said Ross. “I told Matt, ‘I don’t want to call it season two, I just want it to feel like a movie sequel.'”
