‘Stranger Things’ Gets a Third Season … and Possible Ending

The Duffer brothers, creators of the Netflix hit, hint at when the series could wrap.

Fans of Netflix’s Stranger Things now have three—and possibly, four—reasons to rejoice.

In an interview with Vulture, the series’ twin-brother writer-director-producers Matt and Ross Duffer, said that in addition to the upcoming second season—which premieres on Oct. 27—Netflix has already renewed the show for a third season, and possibly, even a fourth. “We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross told New York’s Vulture. “We just have to keep adjusting the story,” said Matt. “Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”

The success of Stranger Things hasn’t only been a boon for its creators; the show’s popularity contributed to Netflix’s massive second-quarter, which saw a revenue uptick of 32 percent to $2.79 billion and the addition of over 5.2 million new subscribers.

Furthermore, the series has a heavy showing in this year’s Emmy Awards, securing 18 nominations, including appearances in categories for best drama, supporting actress in a drama (Millie Bobby Brown), and supporting actor in a drama (David Harbour).
