In case you're wondering, "George Lucas-ing" means editing or modifiyng an already published or released work to have a change apply retroactively to a scene or a show. It is a term coined after George Lucas who treats his Star Wars films like that.

Back to Stranger Things, there are a few continuity errors along the way that weren't able to escape the eyes of the fans. An example of which is Will's birthday which was seemingly forgotten by everyone around him, even his mom.

With this, the Duffer Brothers suggested that they would just do some "George Lucas-ing" on the scene in Season 2 to change the birthday of Will and that way, it wouldn't be forgotten.

However, on the official Twitter account of the Stranger Things writers, they posted a public service announcement that goes like this, "PSA: no scenes from previous seasons have ever been cut or re-edited. And they never will be." They even coupled the post with Dustin swearing on his mother.

Stranger Things currently has four seasons and all of it are available to stream online via Netflix.
