The Duffer Brothers tease guest stars for Stranger Things Season 4
In a recent interview with Deadline, Stranger Things creators Ross and Matt Duffer shared a bit of new information about the highly-anticipated fourth season of their hit Netflix series, teasing that they’re excited for everyone to be able to see the big guest-stars that they’ve set up for the new season.
“We have a couple of cool ones this year,” The Duffer Brothers said. “It’s a really fun way to meet one of your icons. You know, write a part for them and see if they want to do it.”
In addition, the creative duo also revealed that they don’t actually know when will Stranger Things end its popular run on Netflix. However, they did confirm that they’ve already come up with the series’ inevitable ending.
“We like to look at each season as kind of its own complete story. We do have a pretty large mythology,” Matt Duffer said. “I think when we were developing Season 1 — and to Netflix’s credit, they sort of pressured us to make sure we had this mythology really hammered out — we had like a 25-page sort of Stranger Things mythology that only maybe a small handful of people have seen. So season by season, we’re kind of turning the page and revealing a little bit more and more.”
“So we do have a general sense of where we’re going,” he continued. “We’ve known the ending of the show for quite a while.”
Stranger Things Season 4 stars Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, David Harbour as Chief Jim Hopper, Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler, Noah Schnapp as Will Byers, Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson, Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler, Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers, Joe Keery as Steve Harrington, Sadie Sink as Max, Maya Thurman-Hawke as Robin, Brett Gelman as Murray Bauman and Priah Ferguson as Erica Sinclair.
The series was created by Matt and Sean Duffer, who also serve as executive producers and directors along with Shawn Levy (who also directs), Dan Cohen and Iain Patterson.
Stranger Things has received 30 Emmy nominations last year (with six wins) from its first two seasons and was honored with the 2017 SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, as well as the 2017 Norman Felton Producer of the Year Award in Episodic Television — Drama from the Producers Guild of America.
Seasons 1-3 are now available for streaming exclusively on Netflix.
