Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer have revealed that they already know how the show is going to end. They also confessed that they have known for quite some time.
Sometimes, when shows are popular, they continue to drag on while writes scrape around the barrel for an ending that will satisfy as many fans as possible. In the case of Stranger Things, the Duffers already know where the show is heading and how things will wrap up.
“We like to look at each season as kind of its own complete story,” Matt told Deadline. “We do have a pretty large mythology […] and season by season, we’re turning the page and revealing a little bit more and more.
“So we do have a general sense of where we’re going. We’ve known the ending of the show for quite a while.”
He added: “I mean, the honest truth is, we didn’t know if we would go beyond season one. So we liked the idea that season one could function as its own standalone limited series, but it had the potential to go beyond that.
“But yeah, we have an ending in mind, we don’t want to keep churning it out.”
