The writers of Stranger Issues have strongly denied scenes from earlier seasons have been reduce or re-edited, following experiences and on-line theories suggesting in any other case.
Earlier this week a TikTok person claimed she’d noticed an edit to a scene within the first season the place Jonathan pictures Nancy as she modifies. The idea was the Duffer brothers had gone again to retroactively take away the present in an effort to clear up Jonathan’s picture. That didn’t occur and the scene stays because it was initially printed, because the Stranger Issues writers room has now identified.
A GQ article highlighting the supposed edit referred to as it a “worrying TV pattern” and referenced interview with the creators the place they’d revealed plans to “George Lucas” sure parts of the present. That’s a reference to the Star Wars auteur’s behavior of tinkering with the Star Wars motion pictures, earlier than the sale to Disney.
Nonetheless, that was a reference to a plan to fill a plot gap noticed by a fan. An episode of the newest Season 4 of the present was set on March 22, however an earlier season had established that was Will Bryers’ birthday. Because of this GQ corrected its article (by way of Deadline) and the Stranger Issues writers had been fairly gleeful about the entire thing.
On Twitter they wrote: “It’s hilarious that an article bashing the present for retroactively enhancing a scene (based mostly off a false TikTok hearsay) has now needed to retroactively edit their very own article. Oops”
