Stranger Things Season 3 Confirmed, Series To End On 4?

Last year’s Stranger Things certainly left quite the impact on fans around the world. Our minds were captivated by the great horror story it brought to the table, the talented young cast it introduced, and the myriad of ’80s references. Any second season would be faced with a good amount of scrutiny, but with creators Matt and Ross Duffer seeming to understand that story and character reigns supreme, we seem to be in good hands.

Stranger Things Season 2 is set to hit Netflix in a couple short months, but speaking with Vulture, The Duffer Brothers confirmed that Season 3 was also officially a go. This is fantastic news. Netflix tends to wait for a couple months after the release of a series before making an announcement, but given the huge acclaim the first season had, as well as the anticipation for the third, it makes sense they’d give them go-ahead this early on.

But then there’s the question of: how long will the show go on? How many years will these kids be facing the terror of the Upside Down, and at what point will it just become old for the citizens of Hawkins and for viewers alike? The Duffers are well aware of overstaying their welcome, and from the beginning, they hinted that this wasn’t a show that would last forever.

Ross Duffer reiterated this point, giving us a slightly more specific idea of what they’re thinking for the show in terms of length.

“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out.”

That’s a number that feels right. I’d perhaps even go for five seasons, but anything beyond that really feels like they’re stretching the premise too thin. This also falls in line with some stuff we heard from a source last August.

The Duffer Brothers are from North Carolina, and wanted to shoot the show there. As such, they applied for the NC Film Grant program. Sad thing is that the program was only funded for one more year, and they had a 5-season arc planned for the show, so they had to decline and instead based production out of Georgia.

Of course, things change all the time, and since then, it sounds like they have plans to potentially reduce their story down to four seasons.

How many seasons do you think they should end with? Let us know down below!

Stranger Things Season 2 hits Netflix on October 27, 2017.
