Stranger Things fans are getting increasingly excited as the weeks tick by, with the second season set to debut on Netflix a little later this year and new information coming out by the day.
Now in an interview with co-creator Ross Duffer, Collider discovered at San Diego Comic Con that the overall series arc will be established in the very near future, because the writers don’t want to drag the show out for longer than needs be.
“Well we started having those real conversations after the first season came out, and I think us and Shawn [Levy], and we talked to Netflix – we sort of have a rough plan and I think the important thing for us was to really start to lay the groundwork this season for what would be the arc for the rest of the show,” he explained.
“In terms of exact number of seasons we’re not sure, but I know that Matt [Duffer] and I wanna stick with it and just sort of finish it out. But again we don’t want to linger too long, we just want to tell the story that we want to tell and get out. Hopefully, people are like, ‘I want more!’ and that’s great, but that’s sort of how we want to leave it.
“In terms of spinoffs, I don’t think we’ve gotten that far. Because for us it’s really just about focusing on this story and just getting it done.”
When it comes to laying out a time period, he adds: “We’re not quite on the yearly cycle [of releasing seasons], as you can tell. But we’re gonna do it as fast as we can without totally burning out.”
Stranger Things season 2 officially premieres on October 27, joining its now-available first season on Netflix.
