Regardless of reports that Stranger Things creators/writers/directors Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer would be leaving the hugely popular Netflix series after Season 3, high-ranking sources near the bros inform Collider this is never the case– the Duffers are not leaving Stranger Things after Season 3.
The relocation didn’t make much sense to start with. Stranger Things is not just the Duffer Brothers’ infant, however they’re part of an extremely little group of creatives that really makes the program, which likewise consists of producer/director Shawn Levy The Duffer Brothers have actually personally composed 7 of the program’s 17 episodes so far and have actually directed 10 of them.

Indeed, when we spoke to the Duffer Brothers and Levy last summer season, Ross Duffer verified they prepare to stick to this series through its conclusion:
“In terms of exact number of seasons we’re not sure, but I know that Matt 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.”
Levy doubled down, exposing that regardless of fielding uses to go off and make huge films, the Duffers wish to inform the total Stranger Things story:
“There is no succession plan. There’s no like, ‘Oh the Duffers are gonna pull back.’ It’s a tiny creative team that makes this show, it’s predominantly this twinship that makes this show, and luckily for us and fans of the show, they’re being offered movies every week but they love this thing they’ve created, they know the value of it. To get to create a world of characters that the rest of the real world embraces, you’re lucky if you get that once in a career. They’re young but they’re also smart enough to know that, that it’s a gift. It’s not like we’re grooming someone that we’re gonna hand the show off to, it’s us and we’re in it, and it’s because we still love it. We’ve got a lot of story left.”
The group is presently in pre-production on Stranger Things 3, which begins shooting this summer season and will include 8 episodes. There’s no release date right now, however fans must anticipate to see it either in extremely late 2018 or at some point in the very first half of2019 After that, nevertheless, the Duffers have no strategies to leave the series anytime quickly, and we’ll get to see this duo craft the conclusion to this phenomenon that they themselves produced in the very first location.
