“Stranger Things” Targets 4-5 Season Run

Netflix has started early with promotion for the second season of “Stranger Things” with both the Superbowl commercial and a recent batch of first photos in the past week and a half. Considering there’s a full eight months to go before the new episodes are out, things are likely to quieten down for a while.

Before they do though, executive producer Shawn Levy spoke with EW about the security on the new season’s set and how they’re trying to keep things under wraps:

“We literally consulted with the producers on ‘Game of Thrones’ to learn security protocols. We had no security protocols last season and we have extensive security protocols this season. I can’t speak about what they are because then people could crack them. We protect every story point, every page of every script.”

At the same time, creators Matt and Ross Duffer tell the mag that the show has a definitive end in sight. Matt says:

“I want it to have a really finite ending. I don’t want it to be one of those shows that runs out of gas and they lose it because they’re losing interest. You wanna end when you’re on top.”

Ross adds: “Everything changes as we move forward so we’ll see.” The Duffers do promise a contained story for the second season, but there’ll be enough elements to map out some future seasons.
