There’s something to be said about fan expectations regarding the creative process. It’s usually not good enough that a story be amazing, but creators are often expected to have everything mapped out from the beginning. Sadly, that’s not always how the creative process works, especially when you’re working for each entry in a franchise to be a wholly satisfying experience.
This also seems to be the case with the Duffer Brothers and their series Stranger Things. Speaking with Collider, Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy gave an update regarding Stranger Things 3. Here’s what he had to say:
“[The Duffer Brothers are at] the very earliest stage of breaking story for Season 3. They take a deep dive into every season and every moment, and every decision for every moment. And as a result we only finished Season 2 a few weeks ago.”
That’s not to say they have no plans at all. They do have the setting and key plot points for the series, and they’re even about to head into the writers room. But it sounds like looking at fan reaction is all a part of the process to creating a rewarding story.
“Certain things came out of ‘people loved this and loved that,’ and the guys are very smart about giving the fans what they want and playing to the strengths of what played well, and letting that find its way into the season.”
