The series' second season has seen huge success following its Netflix debut.
Following the incredibly addictive second season of Netflix original series 'Stranger Things', fans are already wondering just how the show will come to an end and when. Though co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer, aka the Duffer Brothers have said in the past that they have a four season arc in mind, it looks like that could be changed if recent comments are anything to go by.

As one of the streaming service's most talked-about series, 'Stranger Things' is going to be treated as such by the company, but the Duffer Brothers seem like a pair who can't be tempted by fortune to stray off the path of their overriding narrative in a simple bid to milk the cash cow for all they can get.
Combining that with the fact they already have their ending for the story mapped out, it becomes clearer that as much as we all love 'Stranger Things', the writing is already on the wall and an end goal is already in sight.
Speaking with Yahoo!, the co-creators explained: "We have an end goal; we know where we want to go. We’re not quite sure how long it will take to get there, but we do have a plan. And some of it, it’s just because season 2, we just came into it with so many ideas, and so many of them have been kicked further down the road. So we’re gonna use some of those. In [our season 2 brainstorm], we figured out what that ending is, but it’ll take more than one year to get there."
Of course, with everything that comes up in the writing process, the series may go on for a little longer than the pair had imagined, but it's not something that's going to take half a decade to figure out. In fact, we'd be shocked if 'Stranger Things' went on for more than six seasons.
That's not to say that the potential for a spinoff isn't up in the air. Whilst many were left confused and felt a little jarred by season 2's episode 7, it was the perfect test to see if the gang Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) met in the episode could carry their own series. We'll have to keep an eye on that one.
For now though, we're just excited to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store for us all in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. Season 3 can't come soon enough...
'Stranger Things' seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream now on Netflix.
