Warning: contains Stranger Things season four spoilers
The final episode of volume one of Stranger Things season four saddled fans with a plethora of burning questions.
Now, the show's creators have revealed that one question that has played on the minds of viewers will indeed be addressed – but not until the final season.
One of the biggest ‘holy cow’ moments came when Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) discovered time in the Upside Down is stuck in 1983, the year Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) went missing in season one.
Speaking to Variety, show creators Matt and Ross Duffer said the time freeze is ‘setting the stage for some big reveals in our final season’.
While volume two of Stranger Things season four will hit Netflix on 1 July, the fifth and final instalment of the blockbuster sci-fi franchise has yet to begin filming.
When asked exactly why time has frozen on the day Will was snatched by the demogorgon during the series’ inaugural season, Matt explained: “That is actually one of the few questions that we’ve raised this season that isn’t going to get answered in Volume 2.”
He went on: “This season, we are giving the audience a lot of information, but there’s still mysteries about the Upside Down, and that is a big one. But we really wanted to hint at it this season because it’s going to play such a huge role moving.”
However, Ross assured fans they’ll learn a little more about the time freeze in volume two of season four, but will have to wait until season five for a full explanation.
Days earlier, the Duffer Brothers were forced to admit to the outlet that they’d forgotten Will’s birthday in a major plot blunder.
After the first instalment of season four landed on Netflix, fans took to Twitter to point out that in episode two, Will, Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) had visited the roller rink on Will’s birthday, however his two best friends failed to mention the milestone.
When asked about the moment by Variety, Matt and Ross admitted they had actually forgotten that Will’s mum Joyce (Winona Ryder) revealed in season two that his birthday fell on 22 March.
Matt said: "The honest response is, clearly like the characters in the show, we also forgot about Will’s birthday."
He added: "So now the debate now is whether we adjust Will’s birthday or we just let it be really sad."
His twin brother Ross added: “It was six years ago that I wrote that date.”
