'Stranger Things' cast feel the show should end after 'either one or two more' seasons
Netflix has kept most of the details about the upcoming season under wraps, but Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Noah Schnapp teased what fans could expect from the third installment
While the entire planet is awaiting the big arrival of 'Stranger Things' season three, the young lads from the show's main cast had some piping hot opinions to share when it came to the show ending. Netflix has kept most of the details about the upcoming season under wraps, but Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, and Noah Schnapp teased what fans could expect from the third installment, especially if they were to consider the trio's opinions on when the show will come to an end.
"The Duffers have done so much for the characters in such an amazing way," Wolfhard, who plays Mike, spilled to Entertainment Tonight at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet on June 15. Gushing further about the spectacular stories the showrunners have churned out for two seasons now, he added: "We're biased, but we truly believe it's a fantastic season." But here's the biggest takeaway from what Wolfdard had to say. "This may not be our last season," he told the outlet, adding: "We don't know."
Noah Schnapp, who played the role of Will, feels like the show should end after "Probably like, five (seasons)." Everyone's favorite Dustin, aka Matarazzo, believes "We should stop whenever the story feels like it needs to be completed. I don't think any story should be pushed. If there's no more story, there's no more story." Wolfhard chimed in saying: "I think we only need one more to like, tie it all up. Either one or two more. At least one more to tie it all up."
But the boys also maintained that fans and viewers aren't the only ones on a blank page when it comes to a fixed duration the show is intended to run for. Speaking about how the Duffer brothers — Matt and Ross — always blow off the question, Wolfhard shared: "Sometimes we're like, 'It would be cool to have five seasons', and they're like, 'We're not telling you anything'," Wolfhard shared.
However, fans concerned about the main elements of the upcoming third season shouldn't be all that concerned either, indicates Schnapp, as he claims season three will have "the playfulness of season one and the darkness of season two." As for the highly anticipated romantic plot fans are craving to see being explored, David Harbour aka Chief Jim Hopper from the show told the outlet at the CinemaCon 2019 that love will very much be in the air. "You know, it's a summer season and… I'll tell you this: In some ways, it's like the summer of love in Hawkins in various forms," he shared, adding: "It's also got monsters and all kinds of stuff too, but in a lot of different ways I would characterize it as the 'summer of love' season."
Season three of 'Stranger Things' premieres on Netflix next month, on July 4.
