In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer talked about the fate of the series. Before we start, If you haven’t seen the third season of the Stranger Things, as well as the mid-credits scene after the last episode, because some major spoilers are coming your way.
The final scenes in the last episode of Stranger Things 3 were so crazy! Hopper sacrificed himself to shut down the portal, Eleven lost her powers (temporary for sure), she moved in with Joyce and the Byers boys, and they sold their house and were last seen packing up and moving away. The timeline is now October, and the children are making plans to see each other again for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was a very sad and ending scene, as El read the letter from Hopper, and the kids said their goodbyes. But then the mid-credits scene blew everything wide open. Could the American in Russian jail be Hopper?! It seems like it would just be evil if it wasn’t. And the Russians have a Demogorgon, so I think this will not end good, I just hope they don’t connect it to Chernobyl.
Stranger Things has not yet been given a Season 4 by Netflix, but with the series breaking records and very much being the most popular Netflix original series of all time, I’m very sure in saying there will be another season. In the interview, Ross Duffer told that they don’t have every detail written for the upcoming season yet, but they do have the broad strokes and overall story in mind. Matt Duffer added, “I think the biggest thing that’s going to happen is it’s going to open up a little bit, not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins.”
This might mean Russia, this could mean the new city that the Byers gang is moved to, it could very well mean both. Ross added, “Assuming there’s a Season 4, obviously the question of who that American is in that cell and then also what they’re doing with the Demogorgon, is a tease. That’s obviously going to play a huge role in a potential season four.” Executive producer Shawn Levy added, “Certainly Season 3 ends with several plot strands that are separate from each other. And should there be a Season 4, I think we’ll see them all explored.”
I love this show so much. I was sad at the end of the episode, but that teaser made me so much happy! I don’t know how the Duffers make these characters so easily emotionally connected to us, but they successfully did and I can’t wait to know more about the next season, and the trailer for Season 4.
I attached the post-credits scene if you missed it by any chance.
