As the premiere of the second season of "Stranger Things" draws closer and closer, one star believes that the show is only good for five seasons and nothing more. Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) revealed in an interview with Paste Magazine that it's likely that the Duffer Brothers, who created the series, won't want to overstay their welcome. So, he’s expecting the show to wrap up after Season 5.

Gaten Matarazzo said that Matt and Ross Duffer definitely have ideas when it comes to the show's longevity and for as long as the stories remain fresh, then the Duffer Brothers will continue to deliver strong episodes.

But what happens when the ideas are no longer there?

"I know they don’t want it to go that way," the young actor said. "So, I think their max might be -- this isn’t confirmed or anything -- but four or five seasons at the most?" Gaten Matarazzo added.

A different direction for season 2

When "Stranger Things" debuted on Netflix in July 2016, the show became widely popular for its nostalgic '80s feel. It also helped and clicked with viewers because the show had an interesting storyline involving a government conspiracy. The first season also delivered a mix of science fiction, horror, drama, and thriller with a strong ensemble cast.

But producers said the show will slightly deviate from what viewers have come to love in "Stranger Things" Season 2, which will premiere on Oct.

31. The changes are needed to keep the show interesting and to ensure it won't just become a formulaic copy of its first season.

One change viewers should expect is with the character of Hawkins Police Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour), who might not be the hero that viewers loved in Season 1. "We start examining the perils of what it is to be a hero," David Harbour said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"[It] takes him in a different direction which, I think, is equally satisfying but very, very different," he added.

Comic-Con appearance

Meanwhile, before things start getting crazier, the cast of "Stranger Things" will grace this year's Comic-Con in San Diego. What's more, they will take over Hall H, which is reserved for movies and television shows with a strong following.

In previous Comic-Con events, “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead” occupied Hall H as well.

Fans in attendance at the said event expect that “Stranger Things” will unveil a new and longer teaser to Season 2. It’s still unclear, however, which of the actors will be part of the panel on Saturday, July 22 but participants do love the surprises the show has in store for them.
