The Duffer Bros. Says Stranger Things Season 4 Won’t End the Series
Stranger Things season 4 briefly began filming before the coronavirus pandemic. But with the young stars quickly growing up, the series seems likely to be near the end of its lifespan. Regardless, the series finale isn’t in sight just yet. During a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer assured fans that Stranger Things won’t finish its run with season 4.
“Season four won’t be the end,” said Ross Duffer. “We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The 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.”
“We wanted this season to feel like the big Hollywood summer blockbusters that we grew up with and loved so much,” continued Ross. “There’s a little more humor in it, a little more action, and it just has a different feel than the past two seasons, which were set in the fall and a little more dreary and scary.”
However, the series isn’t necessarily ready to resume production, according to the Duffers.
“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,” noted Ross Duffer.
“We’ve had a lot more time to work on the scripts,” added Matt Duffer. “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.”
