Stranger Things suffered yet another legal setback on the road to Season 3, but has the monster already been slain? New evidence seemingly precludes the possibility that Stranger Things was cribbed from a similar short film, and may invalidate the case.
Don’t think a Stranger Things lawsuit will turn the Duffer brothers upside down. The pair have responded to allegations the breakout Netflix drama was cribbed from a Montauk short, calling the lawsuit “completely meritless.”
Stranger Things wears many influences on its sleeve, but one in particular may land it in hot water. Creators Ross and Matt Duffer now face a lawsuit claiming Stranger Things is derived from short film Montauk, whose creator claims to have pitched them the project in 2014.
New rumors have emerged around Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer, as a crew member departed the series alleging the two “seek out and verbally abuse women” on-set. The Duffers have now responded, claiming the reports “mischaracterize our set.”
We haven’t reached the midpoint of Stranger Things just yet, so there’s no way creators would jump ship now, right? That’s exactly the rumor going around with executive producers Ross and Matt Duffer, but sources already indicate the claim may have been turned upside down.
Stranger Things has officially been canceled. No, I’m kidding – can you imagine? Given all the hoopla and unanswered questions of the breakout Netflix drama’s second season, the streaming service has of course confirmed that Eleven, Mike, Will, Joyce, Dustin and all the rest will return for Season 3.
More and more, the young Stranger Things cast faces challenges of mega-stardom and the questions they raise. One recent controversy took aim at the Duffer brothers reportedly pushing star Sadie Sink into an unscripted kissing scene, though both Sink and the Duffers now downplay any serious conflict.
Once upon a time, Stranger Things played coy with a potential second season, leading us to wonder if the breakout Netflix drama might reboot after one year. That plan obviously fell through, but the Duffer brothers now reveal a modified Season 1 finale that was much more heartbreaking than we first realized.
