Matt Duffer: We jokingly call it ours game of Thrones season because it’s so spread out, so I think that’s what’s unique or most unique about the season. Joyce and Byers’ family left at the end of season 3. They are in California; we always wanted to have that ‘E.T.’ style suburban aesthetic, which we finally got to do this year in the desert. ; and then we have Hopper in Russia; and then of course we have a group that remains in Hawkins. So we have these three stories, they’re all connected and interwoven, but they’re very different shades.
Ross Duffer: [but] we didn’t know how big the season was going to be, and we didn’t even realize it until we were halfway through, just in terms of how much story we wanted to tell this season. game of Thrones It’s one thing that we’ve referenced, but also for us it’s really about revelations, in the sense that we really wanted to start giving the audience some answers.
Since the popularity behind Strange things grows with each installment, Netflix has always made each season bigger than the last. game of Thrones it was really a massive show in terms of story and production, so the comparison to Duffer Bros really speaks to the scale of season 4. It’s important though that Strange things it maintains its compelling narrative rather than focusing exclusively on CGI-laden action scenes. game of Thrones it certainly stood out for bringing audiences exciting battles and action, but later seasons put that ahead of the actual story of the show.

That said, the Duffer Bros will have the difficult task of landing it soon enough. Strange things Season 5 will be the show’s last, which means Season 4 will need to start wrapping up certain storylines to lead into the final season.
