This is What Stranger Things is Copying from Game of Thrones

When you're handling one of the most anticipated series and you still have over half a year left in production, a lot of issues can come up. Apart from filming issues, the biggest threat would have to be spoilers from info-hungry fans.

This is currently what's plaguing directors and brothers Matt and Ross Duffer for their hit series Stranger Things. And while the first season had been a sort of test run, since no one was expecting the sleeper hit to soar in popularity and demand, this season will see a lot more fans who are just rabid for more teasers way before the new episode gets released.

Because of that, the creators and showrunners sought help from the creators of another equally anticipated series, Game of Thrones. Perhaps you can call them the veterans for protecting secrets on the development, seeing as how fans have been waiting for spoilers for seven years now.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Producer Shawn Levy and the directors, the Duffer brothers shared that they have been learning from the pros when it comes to protecting the next upcoming episodes for Stranger Things.

"We had no security protocols last season and we have extensive security protocols this season. I can't speak about what they are because then people could crack them. We protect every story point, every page of every script."

This was far from how the process for the creators have been in the past. Now, Ross Duffer shared that he even has to burn his sides instead of throwing them away to make sure that the set secrets are kept safe and sound.

Even the cast are part of the tight security. The code names for the characters are the lightweight measures—actress Millie Bobby Brown shared that they now had their names on the script, and anyone who loses theirs is dead.

Stranger Things will be back in time for Halloween later this year.
