"Stranger Things" creators Matt and Ross Duffer hope the show will stick around for a while yet. As a matter of fact, they have plans for a full four or five seasons. However, those plans could change -- but only if the show's audience loses interest.
“Everything changes as we move forward so we’ll see,” Ross Duffer told Entertainment Weekly.
“I want it to have a really finite ending. I don’t want it to be one of those shows that runs out of gas and they lose it because they’re losing interest. You wanna end when you’re on top,” added Matt Duffer.
“Hopefully you’ll come to the end of season 2 and feel fully satisfied and want more but you’ll feel like it has come to a conclusion," Ross Duffer explained. "But also we’ve laid the ground work for further seasons.”
In Season 1, the residents of Hawkins, Indiana faced down an inter-dimensional monster called the Demogorgon back in Season 1. Soon after their friend Will Byers went missing, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) encountered Eleven (Bobbi Millie Brown), a girl with otherworldly powers, and she was able to steer them in the right direction. With some help from Will’s mom Joyce, his brother Jonathan, Chief Jim Hopper, Mike’s sister Nancy and her boyfriend Steve, the Hawkins residents were able to defeat the Demogorgon and bring Will home. However, Eleven appeared to be lost in the struggle, and Will isn’t as okay as he seems, since he was seen coughing up slugs at the end of the Season 1 finale.
“In the last episode, I threw up a slug, so Season Two begins with what happens from there,” teased Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, in an earlier interview. “There may have been some effect on him. I may or may not have turned into a monster. You’ll have to watch to find out.”
“The threat, which in Season One was to Will Byers, has grown. That’s all I’m going to say!” added executive producer Shawn Levy.
“Stranger Things” Season 2 arrives on Netflix this Halloween. Most of the Season 1 cast, including Winona Ryder and Millie Bobby Brown, will return, joined by the likes of Sean Astin (“The Lord of the Rings”), (“Mad About You”) and more.
