The hit series recently released its second season on the streaming service, with Brown’s fan favourite character Eleven returning early on.
During a Q&A session, co-creator Ross Duffer admitted that the initial plan was to have Eleven die at the end of the final episode of the first season.
“Maybe I shouldn’t say this because I like to pretend that it was all planned out, but it was originally pitched as a limited series,” Duffer said of the Netflix series.
Duffer continued: “So, Eleven was going to sacrifice herself and save the world, and then that was going to be it, because there was a moment where limited series were a big deal.”
Duffer also revealed that fans of the show will see more of Lucas’ sister Erica. “‘We got to use more Erica’ – that was one of the first things we said in the writers’ room,” he said.
Stranger Things 2 is currently streaming in its entirety on Netflix.
