‘Stranger Things’: Duffer brothers' shocking confession

The "Stranger Things" series is one of Netflix's biggest phenomena in recent years. The fourth season of the series "Stranger Things" broke the viewing record in the first weekend of the show, thus removing the second season of "Bridgerton" from the throne.

It is interesting that the latest sequel "pulled" the previous three, which also recorded great ratings. The second part of the 4th season of the "Stranger Things" series of two episodes will start broadcasting on July 1 on Netflix.

Meanwhile, the creators of the series, the Duffer brothers, surprised everyone with one confession that shocked fans. One of the favorite characters, Steve, shouldn't have waited for the second season either. Fans met Steve as a popular high school student who was a "bully" on duty in the first season. At the time, it didn't look like he could become one of the main characters. However, that happened as early as next season. His unexpected friendship with Dustin developed into one of the best stories, and Steve became one of the funniest characters.

Steve was definitely supposed to die in the first season, the Duffer brothers point out. Although they do not know how, and at what point this would happen, that was the plan. They say that it would happen in a clash with the Demogorgon but at the last moment, the whole story was reversed. Steve, played by Joe Keery, welcomed the fourth season and showed how much he is needed by his team.

With a staggering $ 30 million per episode, the new sequel to Stranger Things is reputed to be the most expensive season to date. In addition to the constant cast of celebrities, the new season brings some surprises. “In many ways, Season 4 is the reincarnation of Season 1. It’s not the same story or a repetition of what’s already been seen but the skillful ways in which the new season has taken on thematic inspirations - the works of Stephen King and John Carpenter - are reawakened in Season 4. Stranger Things has evolved, albeit rather clumsily, but it has not forgotten the roots it started with”, said critic Eric Francisco.
