The highly anticipated second season of "Stranger Things" is coming to Netflix on October 27th. The co-creators of the hit original series, Matt and Ross Duffer, known as "The Duffer Brothers," join Cheddar to preview the newest season. The co-creators say they were yearning for storytelling that went back to topics ordinary people can relate to, and "Stranger Things" is produced more like a movie than a TV show. That may be why it fits the binge-watching bill for Netflix. As for how long they think the show will last? "It's certainly not going to be seven seasons." Matt and Ross Duffer say "Stranger Things" will have more than three seasons, but they're not sure how the series will end. The show was one of the breakout hits in Netflix's original programming slate last year. The company plans to spend as much as $8 billion on its own content in 2018. "Stranger Things" has already been picked up for a third season.
