Development and history[ edit ] The Duffer brothers, Ross and Matt, creators of the series Stranger Things was created by Matt and Ross Duffer, known professionally as the Duffer brothers. Night Shyamalan, however, due to changes at Warner Bros. To their surprise, television producer Donald De Line approached them, impressed with the script for Hidden, and offered them the opportunity to work on episodes of Wayward Pines alongside Shyamalan. The brothers were tutored by Shyamalan during the episode’s production, so when they finished, they felt they were ready to produce their own television series.

They later invited the Duffers to their office and bought the rights to the series, giving the brothers full authorship. The brothers began writing the series and brought in Levy and Cohen as executive producers to begin casting. The brothers began by using a copy of Stephen King’s novel Firestarter to consider the font and appearance of the title, and came up with a long list of possible alternatives.

Stranger Things came about as it sounded similar to another King novel, Needful Things, though Matt noted that they still had a "lots of heated arguments" about this end title. I guess that’s what Netflix was intending to do all along". I don’t think they really know what they want". Netflix feared this approach, as the company believed that movie sequels generally got a bad rap, but the Duffers noted that there were many successful sequels that surpassed the original film, and they felt safe with this name.

However, executive producer Shawn Levy later suggested that four or five total seasons were possibilities, stating that the truth is that we are definitely going to go four seasons and there is a possibility of a fifth. So I do not know what to do". Levy also confirmed that a fourth season was on the cards "definitely happening" and that there was potential for a fifth season.

Casting[ edit ] The Duffer brothers cast David Harbor as Hopper believing this was his chance to play a main character. In June , it was announced that Winona Ryder and David Harbor had joined the series as Joyce and as the Hawkins police chief, respectively. The actors who auditioned for the children’s roles read lines from Stand by Me.

The Duffer brothers estimated that they went through around a thousand different child actors for the roles. As casting began immediately after the show was greenlit by Netflix, and before the scripts were fully completed, this allowed some of the cast shots to be reflected in the script. The casting of the young actors for Will and his friends was done right after the first script was completed, and subsequent scripts incorporated aspects of these actors.

The brothers said Modine provided significant input on the character of Dr. The second season, consisting of nine episodes, was released on October 27, in HDR. As for the long hiatus between the second and third seasons, Netflix programming executive Cindy Holland noted " The Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy understand the stakes are high.
