According to The Hollywood Reporter, Matt Duffer said: “We did get our executives to cry, which I felt was a good sign that these executives were crying."
He then joked: “The only other times I’ve seen them cry were like budget meetings."
The fifth season will also be Stranger Things' last, with the Duffer's saying it will be a culmination of everything fans have loved about the show.
They said: “I think that what we’re trying to do is go back to the beginning a little bit in the tone of [season] one, but scale-wise it’s more in line with what [season] four is. Hopefully it’s got a little bit of everything.”
