“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross Duffer, who writes and directs with his twin brother, Matt, as The Duffer Brothers, told Vulture in a recent interview. “We just have to keep adjusting the story.”

“Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year,” he added, joking, “They’re going to have to get the f**k out of this town… It’s ridiculous!”

And judging from what we’ve seen so far, the threat from the Upside Down seems poised to reign terror on a much grander scale in season two, which makes sense, given the directing duo’s elevated cinematic goals for the series.

“We wanted to push things a bit,” Ross explained. “I told Matt, ‘I don’t want to call it season two, I just want it to feel like a movie sequel.’ If you have a successful movie, No. 2 is always a little bit bigger.”
