Stranger Things 4 Is The “Biggest Season Yet”

In a recent interview with Deadline, The Duffer Brothers revealed their plans on how they wish to further explore this past in Stranger Things 4 . Here’s what they had to say:

Back when we did Season 1, Netflix just kept going ‘Can you explain all this mythology to us?’ So we wrote this giant 20-page document, which talked about everything in terms of what was going on and what exactly the Upside Down was. And then each season we’re just sort of peeling back the layers of that onion, so to speak. But this season, we really wanted to really get into it and [revealing] some of those answers. But to do that properly, we needed time, so it just became bigger and bigger.

The Duffer Brothers on the mythology of Stranger Things

The Duffer Brothers described this catalog of lore as a ’20-page document’, which aimed to explain the Upside Down. This also tells us that they will indeed be diving deep into the lore of the series, certainly deeper than any previous season, making this the biggest season yet. The Duffers also told Deadline that each episode in the season would be more than 60 minutes long.

It seems that the creators of the series aim to give us more lore than ever before. The Duffer Brothers seem to be trying to explain to us the deeper origins of all we know. They’ve promised us answers, so it seems we are in for a great season which sounds extremely promising. As always we will be here to decode and explain all that lore for you. So stay tuned for our coverage as Stranger Things takes us into the upside down.
