His brother (and co-creator) Matt Duffer adds:
I want it to have a really finite ending. I don’t want it to be one of those shows that runs out of gas and they lose it because they’re losing interest. You wanna end when you’re on top.
Ross additionally says:
Hopefully you’ll come to the end of season 2 and feel fully satisfied and want more but you’ll feel like it has come to a conclusion. But also we’ve laid the ground work for further seasons.
It definitely seems like Season Two is a big part of the story we have already seen. The creators’ comments make it seem like perhaps these two seasons will serve as one tightly connected story, only to leave us with a bigger universe created. Either way, it’s exciting news! Tell us what you guys think and leave us some comments below.
