Stranger Things is finally set to come to an end when season 5 hits Netflix. During a recent interview, Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer responded to a popular fan theory about how the show will wrap up its run on the streaming giant.
Almost every series has a “It was all a dream” theory. Stranger Things is no exception, with some fans speculating season 5 will end with the revelation the entire series was a game of Dungeons & Dragons. However, Matt and Ross Duffer have officially debunked the theory ahead of Stranger Things 5.
“That is correct,” Matt Duffer joked regarding the Dungeons & Dragons theory while speaking to Metro. “That is the ending… No.”
“That would be the equivalent of, ‘That’s all a dream’,” Ross Duffer continued. “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.”
It’s certainly a relief for Stranger Things fans that even the creators have ruled out such an outrageous fan theory. However, the series still has a tough landing to make with the finale. Netflix puts out seasons at a glacial rate, and season 5 likely won’t be dropping until 2025 at the earliest Fans can only hope it’ll be worth the wait.
Stranger Things are coming to Hawkins…
