Netflix wanted to film Stranger Things Season 3 and 4 back to back

Stranger Things has become a smash hit for Netflix, now having been nominated for 18 Emmys awards alone after Season 1. With the upcoming Season 2, many wondered how they were going to film the following seasons while keeping the youthful charm of the actors before they hit their awkward pubescent years. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a source from the show wanted to shoot Seasons 3 and 4 back to back to keep the kids young. He was quoted with saying “Every time you have a show that relies so heavily on the charm of kids, you want to capture that.”

This would make sense, and keep Netflix from overspending as it would diminish the chances of the young stars to renegotiate a deal between seasons, which they are expected to do after Season 2. Earning $30,000 per episode plus a bonus if it was a hit, the kids from the show are sure to meet six figures in the upcoming negotiations as  the show had earned 10.9 million viewers when released in 2016.

Synopsis: Set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town including the appearance of a psychokinetic girl who helps the missing boy’s friends in their own search. The second season is set a year after the first, and deals with attempts of the characters to return to normal and consequences from that season.
