Stranger Things returned for the much anticipated season 4 last week with a second part arriving on 1 July.
But the show's creators Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer have already made plans for season 5. As earlier announced, this will be the final season of the show. And according to The Wrap, the pitch for it apparently made Netflix executives cry.
"We do have an outline for Season 5 and we pitched it to Netflix and they really responded well to it," said Matt. "I mean, it was hard. It's the end of the story. I saw executives crying who I've never seen cry before and it was wild."
"And it's not just to do with the story, just the fact that it's like, 'Oh my God, this thing that has defined so many of our lives, these Netflix people who has been with us from the beginning, seven years now', and it's hard to imagine the journey coming to an end," he added.
They also compared the final season to Return of the Jedi. "I don’t think it’ll be as long, though. And the main reason I’m saying that, I’ll probably be proven wrong, but, is that in terms of … The final few is going to be more like a “Return of the Jedi” in that …"
"They're going from the beginning. There's going to be less ramp-up. And I think people will understand what I'm talking about when they see the end of this season," said Matt.
Ross added: "Normally it's like, 'Oh, we get to revisit the characters in their normal lives and how they're doing and what are their relationships like?' And 5 is just going to be pedal to the metal from the opening scene. At least that's what I remember from the outline."
