Stranger Things star was sure: Season 1 will be a "disaster"

The new Stranger Things season was a hit for Netflix great success. For those who were a little confused by the finale, however, we’ve summarized all the key revelations and what they mean. The fifth season has already been confirmed and spin-offs are not excluded. In advance, however, no one suspected that the mystery series would be such a success. This Strange Things star had particularly little faith in it.

Budget for the first season was very tight

The actor David Harbour Plays the role of Sheriff and Elf’s foster father, Jim Hopper, in the series. During an interview at BBC’s The One Show he explained why he thought Netflix would flop new series.

“I still remember when we shot the first season”, said the 47-year-old in an interview. “We were down in Atlanta, Netflix gave us about a $20 budget. About halfway through, around episode 4, I remember my hair stylist came up to me and she was like, ‘I don’t think this is going to work'”. Despite the tight budget, the series became a hit for the streaming service when it released in July 2016.
