Stranger Things was one of the many shows purposely delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. However, the production has already resumed filming last October in Atlanta, Georgia. During its downtime, series creators, Duffer brothers shared that they used the extra time to continue working on the show. As a result, they already know how and when the hit Netflix series will end.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Matt and Ross Duffer revealed that they’ve already decided about the series’ end. The better news is that it doesn’t seem like the end is coming for the sci-fi show any time soon.
“[The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show,” Ross Duffer said. “Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story.”
“Season four won’t be the end,” then confirmed Ross Duffer. “We know what the end is, and we know when it is.”
Furthermore, Matt also said that they’re able to work on the scripts better this season because they had more time. “For the first time, we have all the scripts written and we’re able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments.”
Stranger Things season 4 could be the best season yet
Shawn Levy, the series executive producer recently told Collider that the months-long delay proved to be beneficial for the show. “It impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before,” Levy remarked.
“So the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever.”
Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo also confessed that season 4 may be the best season yet, at least when it comes to wardrobe. “One of my favorite aspects of getting to play Dustin is his wardrobe. Fittings are always a blast. What he wears says a lot about him, I think. Vibrant colors and goofy prints.”
“I won’t give too much away, but season 4 is definitely my favorite when it comes to costumes,” Matarazzo admitted.
In addition, actress Natalia Dyer who plays Nancy Wheeler told Vogue that season 4 is “going to be really big.”
“Every time we end a season, we all think, ‘Where is this going to go? Where can this possibly go?’ Dyer said. “Then we get the scripts for the next season and we’re like… ‘Wow, like, wow!’
Stranger Things has yet to confirm a release date for the upcoming season. In the meantime, the previous seasons can be streamed online via Netflix.
