'Stranger Things' Series To Stop After Season 5? Showrunners Reveal A Factual End To The Hit Series
Just like many other hit series on Netflix, "Stranger Things" met with massive success for its first season. With so many cliffhangers left behind in the season finale, fans are excited to see what lies ahead in the next installment. However, storylines like this one are bound to end at one point or the other. Just like top series such as "Breaking Bad" and "Game of Thrones," "Stranger Things" is also going to meet its end after four or five seasons.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunners The Duffer Brothers noted of their intention to end the show after four/five seasons. However, their vision is still a tentative one leading to the addition of more seasons as well.
It is true fans would hate the idea of knowing that another great series will end after two or three more seasons, but it is still better than extending a series to the point where it does not even make sense anymore. We have several examples of such series in the past which led fans with disappointing finales with irrelevant storylines. Would it not be great to find "Stranger Things" memorable as an awesome show instead of a stretched out soap?
As per the ideas behind the show's story, the Duffer Brothers never took it as a TV series. The duo considered "Stranger Things" more of a long movie. And, we can deduce this fact on the basis of the upcoming series title "Stranger Things 2" instead of "Stranger Things" Season 2.
So, we can conclude the point made by the showrunners for this incredible series. They might have a number of ideas behind running the show, but fans would rather enjoy it for a short series rather than a long one. In addition, the young cast members are inevitably going to grow up which might remove the charm of the series on the whole if it were to show up for more seasons than decided.
For now, we do not have a slated confirmation about the number of decided "Stranger Things" seasons yet. Anyways, fans should drop the idea of a lengthy TV show for this one which would certainly be irrelevant.
