Stranger Things is set to end with its upcoming fifth season. It’s been quite the ride and while we still have some time before the final episodes arrive, we still know an end is on the horizon. They split up the fourth season into two parts but knowing that the series will soon end feels like the end of an era. For the actors that joined the project, it’ll be the end of a big part of their childhood of bringing these lovable characters to life. So, it’s not been an easy task for Duffer Brothers to decide when to let go.
In an interview with SFX, they talk about how ending it with Season 5 still feels “a little early” but they still felt like it was “the right move.” Yet, it seems that they may already be thinking about the future, as they do hint that they have some kind of plan but nothing concrete enough that Netflix isn’t even aware of where the journey will go moving forward.
We haven’t told anyone our plans! Not even Netflix! We have some ideas. In terms of if we were to do any sort of a spin-off, or any continuation of Stranger Things, for us the bar was always, ‘Is the idea exciting enough that we feel the pull of wanting to do it again?’ I want to feel the pull of, ‘God, I really want to do this. I feel really, really excited about this.’ So that’s why we’re being careful about what that is and whether we move forward with it or not.Matt Duffer
As we still have some time until the fifth season releases, we might see their visions become clearer as we near its release. So, we’ll see what they may have planned for us moving forward and if the finale may even give us a clearer look at where Stranger Things will move after its wrapped up the series that started in 2016.
