A sad thing was revealed for “Stranger Things” fans at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend. Actor David Harbour and co-creator Ross Duffer both confirmed that the Emmy-nominated show would likely end after four or five seasons.
“We don’t have an open-ended thing like ‘The Walking Dead,’” Harbour told TVLine. “There is an end to all these characters…We’re going to give you something fun and then we’re going to get out before we’ve worn out our welcome. We have a specific story that we’re going to tell.”
“In terms of exact number of seasons we’re not sure,” added Duffer before hinting that four or five seemed like a sweet spot. “I know that [co-creator] 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.”
Duffer also talked about how season 2 would set the tone for the rest of the series. “We sort of have a rough plan,” he teased. “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.”
The second season of “Stranger Things” hits Netflix October 27th.
