Lucas’ S4 Book Secretly Teases Netflix’s Stranger Things Replacement.
We can see that hroughout all seasons of Stranger Things the Duffer Brothers have been influenced by Stephen King.
Stranger Things season 4 was packed full of Easter eggs, but Lucas’ book secretly teased the Duffer Brothers’ next major project, The Talisman. It’s been confirmed that Stranger Things will end after season 5, so now there are more opportunities for the Duffer Brothers to branch out into new stories. With Stephen King being one of their greatest influences for Stranger Things, it seems appropriate for them to adapt one of Stephen King’s great works.
While the entire Stranger Things season 4 ending was certainly explosive, audiences are gifted a more tender moment towards the end of the episode. After Max is attacked by Vecna and resurrected by Eleven, she is hospitalized with Lucas and Erica sitting at her bedside. Not knowing if she can hear him, but keeping her company, Lucas reads an extract of Stephen King and Peter Straub’s 1984 young-adult fantasy novel, The Talisman, to his injured on-again, 0ff-again girlfriend. While viewers might understand the significance of the extract Lucas reads, some may not know the deeper ties this well-known novel has to the Duffer Brothers, the creators of Stranger Things.
