The Duffer Brothers Rule Out Major Season 5 Theory

Date:  December 18, 2023

As we eagerly anticipate the release of Stranger Things season 5, fans are immersed in speculation about the series' conclusion. The creators of the series have recently debunked a significant theory related to how Stranger Things will ultimately end.

Given that season 5 marks the final installment of the series, numerous theories have emerged predicting the fates of our beloved characters. One particularly intriguing speculation suggests that all the events depicted in the series never actually occurred.

Stranger Things is a DnD Game Theory

Instead, some fans propose a fascinating theory suggesting that Stranger Things is essentially an extensive Dungeons and Dragons game. According to this speculation, the game is being played by Will Byers and his friends in the basement of Mike Wheeler. There are some clues that support this theory as the creatures from the Upside Down and DnD have striking similarities such as Demogorgon and Vecna.

This could be the reason the Upside Down is perpetually stuck in 1983 because the kids are continuously engaged in their Dungeons and Dragons game during that timeframe. While this twist could be unexpected, some argue that it might result in a somewhat underwhelming ending.

Now finally the Duffer Brothers have dismissed this theory. Recently they spoke to Metro at the premiere of Stranger Things: The First Shadow. When asked about the DnD theory, the Duffer brothers erupted into laughter, with Matt joking: "That is correct. That is the ending…. No."

Later Ross explained: "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."

This revelation seems to confirm that Stranger Things will indeed have a concrete conclusion. The theories circulating about it being a Dungeons and Dragons game or a mere dream appear to be unfounded.

Earlier the Duffer Brothers revealed in an interview with The Guardian that season 5 will be the biggest and the stories of Eleven, Hopper, Lucas and Dustin will conclude with the final season.

"This season – it’s like season one on steroids. It’s the biggest it’s ever been in terms of scale, but it has been really fun, because everyone’s back together in Hawkins: the boys and Eleven interacting more in line with how it was in season one. And, yes, there may be spin-offs, but the story of Eleven and Dustin and Lucas and Hopper, their stories are done here. That’s it…"

The filming for the final season of Stranger Things will commence in January 2024.
