Alright, folks, we’ve all been eagerly awaiting the final season of Stranger Things, and with the end in sight, the fan theories are running wild. But there’s one theory in particular that has caught the attention of creators Matt and Ross Duffer, and they are here to set the record straight.

So, picture this: it’s the end of season 5 and everything we’ve witnessed in Hawkins was just a massive game of Dungeons & Dragons. Sounds totally far-fetched, right? Well, that’s exactly what some fans have been speculating, and the Duffer brothers have some thoughts about it.

In a recent interview with Metro, Matt Duffer joked, “That is the ending… No.” Yup, you read that right. He shut it down real quick. And Ross Duffer backed him up, adding, “That would be the equivalent of, ‘That’s all a dream’… No, I assure you that is not how we’re going to end the show.”

Phew! So, no D&D game wrap-up, folks. The Duffer brothers have assured us that they know where they’re going with the story and have a plan in place for the finale. And from the sounds of it, it seems like we can expect a satisfying conclusion. Fingers crossed!

But let’s talk about the elephant in the room – the excruciating wait for season 5. With Netflix’s slow release schedule, we might not get to see the final chapter until 2025 at the earliest. Ouch. We can only hope it’s worth the wait. And based on the Duffer brothers’ confidence in the ending, it just might be.

Now, onto the juicy details we’ve been craving. Unfortunately, Netflix is keeping a tight lid on any specifics about season 5. But David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper, gave us a little glimmer of hope when he mentioned that he’s gearing up to shoot the new season at the same time as Marvel’s Thunderbolts. Both productions are based in Georgia, and both are currently on hold due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike. So, we’re in a bit of a holding pattern for now.

Let’s not forget the masterminds behind the show. The Duffer brothers are the brains behind this masterpiece, and they also serve as executive producers alongside Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen, Brian Wright, Cindy Holland, Jessica Mecklenburg, Matt Thunell, Karl Gajdusek, Iain Paterson, and Curtis Gwinn. These guys are the real MVPs.

And for those who have somehow managed to resist the call of Hawkins, all four seasons of Stranger Things are available to stream on Netflix. Trust us, you won’t regret diving into this supernatural, nostalgia-filled rollercoaster.

So, there you have it, folks. The Duffer brothers have officially put the D&D theory to rest, and we can look forward to a carefully crafted finale for Stranger Things. We might have to endure a painful wait, but with the promise of a satisfying ending, it’ll be worth it in the end. In the meantime, let’s keep our fingers crossed for more updates and maybe a few sneak peeks. Stay tuned!
