Stranger Things remains on course to end after four or five seasons, with creators Matt and Ross Duffer already working on the central arc of the series, which they plan to personally see through to its conclusion, per Collider:
“Well we started having those real conversations after the first season came out, and I think us and Shawn, and we talked to Netflix—we sort of have a rough plan and I think the important thing for us was to really start to lay the groundwork this season for what would be the arc for the rest of the show.
In terms of exact number of seasons we’re not sure [we envision four or five seasons], but I know that Matt and I wanna stick with it and just sort of finish it out. But again we don’t want to linger too long, we just want to tell the story that we want to tell and get out. Hopefully people are like, ‘I want more!’ and that’s great, but that’s sort of how we want to leave it.”
Could Stranger Things spinoff with subsequent Netflix TV shows? The Duffer Brothers have no immediate franchise plans for the sci-fi drama, but haven’t ruled it out later down the line:
In terms of spinoffs, I don’t think we’ve gotten that far. Because for us it’s really just about focusing on this story and just getting it done.”
Stranger Things Season 2 releases October 27, 2017 on Netflix.
