Netflix Addresses Rumors That ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Will Be the Duffer Brothers’ Last
After a super successful season 2, Stranger Things is getting ready to start filming new episodes once again. As season 3 details begin to come together, rumors about the creative future of the show have also surfaced, and Netflix has quickly stepped in to clear the air.
On Tuesday, a story emerged claiming that Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer would be leaving the show after the upcoming third season. Netflix, however, was quick to shut down the rumors with a perfectly executed tweet.
“Don’t drop your Eggos,” the streaming service tweeted alongside a GIF of Lucas’ sister Erica (Priah Ferguson) looking unamused. “Rumors that the Duffer Bros are leaving Stranger Things after season 3 are false.”

The report, said to be based on a source with knowledge of the production, claimed that the Duffer brothers need to step back from writing, directing, and producing their current hit show in order to develop new contractually obligated titles for Netflix. The source also claimed that the brothers have spoken with other studios about potentially directing a new feature film.
The Duffer brothers have frequently spoken about their vision for the future of the show, previously saying that they’ve so far envisioned at least four or five seasons. Recently, executive producer Shawn Levy divulged some of the season 3 details, saying that the entire story line was complete and that it would once again consist of eight or nine episodes. For the time being, we’ve got plenty of Stranger Things to look forward to.
