'Stranger Things' Season One Almost Never Happened!

'Stranger Things' Season One Almost Never Happened!

Did you know that Stranger Things almost never made it to Netflix?

The show’s creators Matt and Ross Duffer as well as actor David Harbour stepped out to talk about the show on Thursday (August 17) at the Directors Guild in Los Angeles.

The trio was also joined by much of the show’s creative team including producer Shawn Levy, casting directors and music directors.

During the panel discussion, Matt revealed that no one wanted to hear about Stranger Things at first, which was originally being pitched as a movie.

“Nobody wanted to hear movie ideas. They wanted to hear television ideas,” Matt explained.

Instead of totally dropping the idea, they decided to craft the project for a TV space.

Shawn added, “You could choose to take breaks, But if you opted to watch it straight through, as many people have, we wanted it to feel of one unique piece of film that happens to be on a television screen.”
