WARNING: If you didn’t get from the title, we’ll be discussing the Season 3 finale of ‘Stranger Things,’ so if you haven’t seen it, you might want to wait until you do to find out why Millie Bobby Brown was “pissed.”
Since 2016, ‘Stranger Things‘ has been one of the biggest, if not the biggest, series on Netflix. With an ensemble cast including Winona Ryder, the show became a global phenomenon. It has been proven by the show’s success that the creators Matt and Ross Duffer will get to end the series on their terms rather than to facing cancellation.
The Season 3 finale of ‘Stranger Things’ left fans in tears and in shambles after the apparent death of pivotal character Hopper and the departing of some of the series’ characters from the town of Hawkins, Indiana. Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Hopper’s adoptive daughter Eleven, expressed her anger about what that meant for the series’ future.
In an interview with Elle, Brown opened up about her disappointment with the decision, a feeling that many fans are feeling.
“I was pissed! I read the script and I was like, ‘What, how is this even possible? Why are they moving away?’ They were like, ‘Didn’t you read episode three?’ And I was like, ‘Oh yeah.’ Because Joyce said she wanted to move away from Hawkins. I don’t know, I just felt really against it.”
The chemistry between the characters is a huge reason that the show is so appealing to its fans. Brown went on to talk about the friendship behind the cameras and how that impacted the filming of the emotional goodbyes.
“When we were filming it, all of us kids said to each other, ‘So how are we all going to cry?’ Because we don’t really cry in front of each other very often. I usually am the one who’s crying in every single scene and the kids have to deal with me listening to [sad] music and they’re like, ‘Oh God.'”
“I thought, are we all going to go off and listen to music? And then one of the kids was like, ‘Imagine if we have to do this for real one day. And we were like, ‘What do you mean?’ And they were like, ‘What if, when ‘Stranger Things’ is over, we’ll all have to say goodbye to each other and like this is it.’ And we all started crying and then they rolled camera and said action. And that was it. We all started saying goodbye to each other. We felt too real.”
The Duffer brothers have previously stated that they imagined the series running for only four or five seasons. A fourth season was confirmed earlier this month, which may be (but hopefully isn’t) its final season.
All three seasons of ‘Stranger Things’ are currently streaming on Netflix.
