Stranger Things brought the 80s back in a big way last year. Audiences were so taken that it was quickly renewed for a second season (beginning October 27). Series creators the Duffer brothers confirmed to Vulture that the show will be returning for a third season:
They do confirm there will be a season three and, in all likelihood, one more beyond that. “We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” says Ross. By then, the original band of adorable preteens will be ready for college. “We just have to keep adjusting the story,” says Matt. “Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”
Like the Stephen King novels that inspired the Duffers, Stranger Things is stuffed with creativity. It makes sense that they want to avoid throwing preposterous conflicts at the group of youngsters. However, they must have some sincere and logical story ideas in development if they’re thinking two season ahead.
Season two might not begin until the end of October, but fans of Stranger Things can feed their preteen-fighting-evil-magic hunger with the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It. It hits theaters September 8. Season 2 of Stranger Things arrives on Netflix October 27.
