Fans of the Netflix series "Stranger Things" have been awaiting the second season for quite some time now. We're finally just over two months away from the release, but producers are thinking ahead. It has been decided that it will be very unlikely for "Stranger Things" to go past its fourth season. Let's take a look at some of the reasons why.

The events in Hawkins

Hawkins, Indiana is the perfect fictional setting for this series. It is the depiction of average small-town life. Everyone knows each other and generally knows everyone else's business. Choosing the setting in 1983 is perfect as well- milk carton kids were just becoming popular.

There weren't many news stories of missing children before then. The perfect setting is exactly what creates a flaw in creating an endless series.

Everyone in the town would know each other, but not well enough to want to stick around. It makes no sense for these kids's families to stick around in Hawkins with the disappearances and giant monsters coming into play. The parents would want to do what is best for their children, not keep them in harms way. While small-town life can be charming, it is not impossible to find. In fact, it's a rather common thing to find, especially in a state like Indiana. There would be no reason for the character of Joyce Byers to stay in Hawkins after everything she and her family has been through.

The characters and the producers

The characters's actors create somewhat of a problem in continuing the show as well.

The majority of the cast is comprised of children, and they will start to visibly age very soon. Unless a huge new idea of the story is created and expanded upon, ignoring the fact that none of these families would opt to stay in Hawkins, the actors will not be able to stay the same as they age. While we've seen shows that introduce new actors or age characters as the show continues, this idea is not really plausible for "Stranger Things," since it is focused on these kids and their families.

Ultimately, the producers of the show get the final say in how long the show would last. Despite their stating that no one would stay in Hawkins while all of these supernatural incidences keep occurring, The Duffer Brothers have decided that they want to give the show a well-produced ending. The best time frame to produce a wonderful ending for such a great and successful show seems to point towards ending the show at its fourth season.

However, fans have still got some time. The second season of "Stranger Things" is being released on October 27, just in time for Halloween.
