It looks very likely that our favorite binge show on Netflix ‘Stranger Things’ will be coming to an end after season 4 – with producers eyeing a four season plan.
It was the showrunners, Matt & Ross Duffer themselves who delivered the news to fans in an interview with Vulture where Ross claimed one of the main reasons why four seasons would be a logical time to end the show. He believes that the kids would begin to outgrow their roles should it go past that point. Read what he said below:
“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out. By then, the original band of preteens will be ready for college.”
Even in season one there was a moment when young actor Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin grew so much during production that his voice got deeper, this proved as a hindrance in post-production as they couldn’t use his voice for ADR. ADR, meaning Audio Dialogue Replacement is a main part of post-production were if an actor’s voice didn’t record properly on set, then they will read their lines again in a studio. It is an extremely common practice used in nearly all movies and TV shows. Gaten couldn’t do this as his voice sounded too different compared to when he was filming.
Matt Duffer also added: “We just have to keep adjusting the story. Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”
Do you think four seasons is a good time to end the show? We already know that Netflix anticipated the continued success of the show and in-turn renewed it for a third season before season 2 has even aired – see here for more.
‘Stranger Things’ season 2 returns October 27, with all episodes steaming on Netflix.
