'Stranger Things' creator's shut down fan theory for show's ending

Creators of hit Netflix series Stranger Things, Matt and Ross Duffer, have quashed rumours about a potential ending to the sci-fi series.

Many fan theories have emerged as fans await the season five finale. One of the most popular is that the Stranger Things world will turn out to be an elaborate game of Dungeons and Dragons.

Starring Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour, fans are convinced that the lives of the Hawkins residents will turn out to have never existed.

When the theory was put to the Duffer brothers at the West End premiere of the theatre spin-off based on the show Stranger Things: The First Shadow, they quickly denied the Dungeons and Dragons theory.

“That is correct,” joked Matt Duffer. “That is the ending. No.”

Ross echoed his sentiments, explaining: “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.”

The plot details remain strictly under wraps, with Ross promising: “We’ve known where we’ve been going for a while. And we feel comfortable with it; hopefully, it satisfies everyone. We’ll see.”

Elsewhere, David Harbour has dropped hints about the fate of the show’s characters, saying: “The beauty of it is there’s a real ending – things will end in a very real way.”
