"How fun would it be to have a 'Stranger Things' movie", they said.
The upcoming season of 'Stranger Things' consists of nine episodes, but if you are a kind of person that gives up on a movie to binge-watch a series instead, you might have a problem with how long this season's episodes are.
"Seven and nine in particular are movies," Matt Duffer, one of the show's creators, told The Wrap. "And nine is a long movie."
How long, you ask? The Duffer brothers respond: "it is over two hours. It's a big one."
It's not just a big one, it's got a runtime similar to that of actual feature-length movies they show in cinemas – for instance, 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' is 2 hours 6 minutes long.
However, for many people the length of the finale does not seem to be a problem.
Particularly because there are many 'Lord of the Rings' fans among those who wait for season 4, and these people cannot be scared off easily.
Season 4 of 'Stranger Things' is going to be split in two parts – volume 1 will hit screens on May 27, and volume 2 will follow on July 1.
