Stranger Things Season 4 ending has been already decided
Aparna Hajirnis -
If you had to pick a show that defines Netflix, and it had to be an original series, there might not be a better choice than Stranger Things. Nothing else on the service has generated as many conversations over the course of multiple seasons as the throwback sci-fi horror series, and everyone has been desperate for news about the future of Stranger Things ever since season 3 ended with a cliffhanger.
With production on season 4 halted due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, we have no idea when we will be able to return to Hawkins, Indiana, but this week, the Duffer brothers — creators and showrunners of Stranger Things — sat down with Deadline to discuss the past, present, and future of the Netflix series.
We’ve known the ending of the show for quite a while. The honest truth is we didn’t know if it would go beyond season 1, so we like the idea of season 1 that it could function basically as its own standalone piece, like almost as a limited series, but it had the potential to go beyond that. And if it were to go beyond that, we had an idea of where it would go. Yeah, and we have an ending in mind.
As for the inevitable and unstoppable growth of the young cast of Stranger Things, the brothers also admit that they may have to adjust the scripts in order to account for any unexpected changes to the actors that might have occurred while we were all quarantined for months on end.
