In a recent interview with Deadline, Stranger Things creators Ross and Matt Duffer shared new information about the fourth season of their Netflix series, teasing that they’re excited for everyone to be able to see the big guest-stars that they’ve set up for the new season.
“We have a couple of cool ones this year,” The Duffer Brothers said. “It’s a really fun way to meet one of your icons. You know, write a part for them and see if they want to do it.”
In addition, they revealed they don’t know when will Stranger Things will end on Netflix. However, they did confirm they’ve already come up with the series’ ending.
We like to look at each season as kind of its own complete story. We do have a pretty large mythology,” Matt Duffer said. “I think when we were developing Season 1 — and to Netflix’s credit, they sort of pressured us to make sure we had this mythology really hammered out — we had like a 25-page sort of Stranger Things mythology that only maybe a small handful of people have seen. So season by season, we’re kind of turning the page and revealing a little bit more and more.
“So we do have a general sense of where we’re going,” he continued. “We’ve known the ending of the show for quite a while.”
