The fifth season’s pitch reportedly made Netflix executives cry.

The fifth and final season of Netflix’s smash-hit series, Stranger Things, is in its production phase, and if the Duffer Brothers are to be believed, the show will be ending with a bang. At a press event over the weekend, Ross and Matt Duffer, alongside other members of the production team, spoke about the fifth season and what to expect.

“We turned in the first script a couple of weeks ago and we’re onto the second. It’s full steam ahead,” Ross Duffer said at the event. “I remember season one we were just amazed that Netflix was letting us do this at all, but season two was when we really, with the writers, we developed an overall plan and a backstory for all of this and make sure that, with the Upside Down, everything about what it was.”

He added that their overall plan became clearer in the fourth season “but we do have quite a bit more to get in. But just as important as the supernatural, we have so many characters now — most who are still living — and it’s important to wrap up those arcs. A lot of these characters have been growing since season one so it’s a balancing act between giving them time to complete their character arcs and also tying up loose ends and doing our final reveals.”

“We did get our executives to cry, which I felt was a good sign that these executives were crying,” Matt Duffer noted. “The only other times I’ve seen them cry were like budget meetings.”
