Stranger Things: Eleven Didn't Survive Duffer Brothers' Original Pitch

Stranger Things: Eleven Didn't Survive Duffer Brothers' Original Pitch”

Notably, the GIF included in the post was of a scene from "Stranger Things" first season, which debuted in July 2016. Of course you are.

The creators of the popular Netflix series Stranger Things have revealed that they very almost killed off one of the show's standout characters.

Netflix is yet to openly confirm a third season of Stranger Things at the time of writing, but with reports claiming that season 2's premiere attracted 15.8 million views in the USA over the course of three days, we imagine it's a question of when, not if, Things will return.

But she barely made it out of season one alive.

"Some extra motivation for you to not end up there", the tweet read, accompanied by a GIF of "Stranger Things" character Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) eating an Eggo waffle.

"Stranger Things" is one of the most popular series on Netflix, and it has a strong following with millennial viewers and college students. Once things get going in Stranger Things 2, Eleven's fate is officially revealed and the audience is given the answers they've been wracking their brains over for months.

The info was revealed by The Duffer Brothers (via Cinemablend) in their recent appearance at a Master Class Q&A session at Chapman University. It seems her battle with the Demogorgon was originally going to have a much more finite conclusion.

'So it was like, Eleven was gonna sacrifice herself and save the world and then that was gonna be it, because there was a moment where limited series were a big deal'.

Had Stranger Things only been a limited one-run series, Eleven sacrificing her life to save the world would have been noble, although pretty depressing. "No matter what we want to do, I remember when we were originally talking about season 2, we wanted to just start it in Christmas and just go from there, but then we realized the kids are just too old, so we had to jump forward". For now, at least.
