Matt and Ross Duffer, the creators of Netflix sensation “Stranger Things,” have shot down one wild fan theory about the upcoming fifth and final season of the series.
Said fan theory suggests the series will end in a way that shows the events on screen are actually just the main characters playing an elaborate and very long game of “Dungeons and Dragons”.
Appearing on the red carpet for the new “Stranger Things” play in London, the duo was asked by Metro about the fan theory to which Matt Duffer says: “No.” Ross Duffer then added:
“That would be the equivalent of, ‘That’s all a dream’. No, I assure you that is not how we’re going to end the show. We’ve known where we’ve been going for a while. And we feel comfortable with it; hopefully, it satisfies everyone. We’ll see.”
The comments come as strikes delayed the production of the final season which is now on track to get started in early January ahead of a likely early-mid 2025 release.
Main cast Noah Schnapp, Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gates Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke and Priah Ferguson are all expected to return.
They will be joined by “Terminator” alum Linda Hamilton in the series which hails from executive producer Shawn Levy.
