A few months back, “Stranger Things” series creators Matt and Ross Duffer suggested that the hit Netflix series wouldn’t go beyond a fourth season.
The series has only aired one season so far to strong reviews and a major cultural impact, with a second season scheduled to hit in a few weeks and a third pretty much guaranteed at this point.
Fellow executive producer Shawn Levy, however, tells EW that despite those comments, the number isn’t definitive and the show could go another year beyond that:
“Hearts were heard breaking in Netflix headquarters when the Brothers made four seasons sound like an official end, and I was suddenly getting phone calls from our actors’ agents. The truth is we’re definitely going four seasons and there’s very much the possibility of a fifth. Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely.”
Jeff Duffer also tells the mag that the gigantic spider-like ‘shadow monster’ seen in the promo posters and trailers they’re keeping deliberately vague:
“There’s an H.P. Lovecraft sort of approach, this inter-dimensional being that is sort of beyond human comprehension. We purposely don’t want to go too much into what it is or what it wants.”
There’s also some new photos from the new season which is released in full on Netflix on October 27th.
