At the Sunday night event in Los Angeles, Stranger Things creators Ross and Matt Duffer and executive producer ProducerShawn Levy first hinted atNetflix’s fifth and final season.
“We turned in our first script a few weeks ago and are now starting the second one. It’s full speed ahead,” Ross Duffer at the Hollywood event Tell host Patton Oswalt, actors Caleb McLaughlin, Joseph Quinn, Jamie Campbell Bower, Priya Ferguson, Eduardo Franco and Virtual Millie Bobby Brown . “I remember in the first season we were surprised that Netflix completely allowed us to do that, but in the second season, we really worked out a master plan and backstory for all of this with the writers and made sure that by turning upside down, everything about it
He added that they did start revealing a lot of that plan in season four, “but we do have a lot more to do. But just as important is the supernatural, and we now have so many characters — most of whom are still alive — that wrapping those arcs is important. A lot of the characters have been growing since the first season, so it’s an act of balancing between giving them time to complete their character arcs and tidying up loose ends and doing our final reveal.
Matt Duffer says few people know how it will end, but the brothers did pitch the entire season to Netflix in a two-hour session.” We did make our executives cry, and I think that’s a good sign that these executives are crying,” he continued. “The only time I’ve seen them cry is like a budget meeting,” the crowd laughed.
“That was a different tear,” Levy joked, “as a witness, in that two-hour sales room, read the first Script – I’m paralyzed that I’m afraid I’ll break anything, but what I’m going to say about these Duffer Brothers is that even though the show has become so famous, the characters have become so iconic, and about ’80s and the supernatural and genre, it’s about these people, it’s about these characters. Season 5 has dealt with these characters’ stories very clearly, as this has always been the lifeblood of Stranger Things. “
When asked to what extent the final season will continue to incorporate ’80 horror and pop culture When impacted, Ross said, they thought the fifth season was “all seasons, so there’s a little bit of every season, and before every season was so obvious — three, it’s a summer blockbuster for our big monster; four is Psychological horror.
“I think what we’re trying to do is get back to the beginning a little bit in the tone of the first season, but more importantly on the scale with [the fourth season] ],” he added. “Hopefully it’s a little bit of everything. ”
