If we're lucky, "Stranger Things" might do a musical episode
If you’ve watched all of the Stranger Things after show, Beyond Stranger Things, then you know that at one point the Duffer brothers, Matt and Ross, make a joke about a Stranger Things musical episode. That sounds like the dream Stranger Things scenario, right?
Right. And while it’s one thing to joke about it, it’s another thing to actually ask them if a Stranger Things musical episode is going to happen.
And even if it’s not a real, canon Stranger Things episode, it’s a possibility. The good news is that they’re certainly open to this offhand joke becoming a reality. The bad news is that they know it’s a good idea, and are worried what might happen if they mess it up along the way.
But considering the show’s already impressive Broadway pedigree — Gaten Matarazzo played Gavroche in Les Misérables, Caleb McLaughlin was Young Simba in The Lion King, Sadie Sink was Annie in Annie! — along with the fact that Joe Keery and Charlie Heaton both have their own bands, something like a musical episode kinda makes sense. And Matt promises he’s going to mull it over, considering the cast is already stacked with talent.
Now imagine that as a one-off special, or even the new Episode 7 of Season 2. However…the brothers know there’s one wildcard in the cast: Finn Wolfhard.
While Matt is quick to point out, “Finn’s a talented musician,” the other Duffer, Ross, notes that he’s never the first to jump at the chance to sing.
Well, let’s hope that Finn can muster up some strong pipes and really belt it out when the time comes. Let this be the beginning of the Stranger Things musical episode rumor — tell your friends.
