Stranger Things can be best described as the perfect ode to the pop culture of 1980s and breakout star Millie Bobby Brown says she wants to see the show enter the era of 1990s in the follow-up seasons.

Nostalgia is the USP of the show, which has paid homage to the likes of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter and Stephen King in its own unique way.

The first three seasons — the third started streaming last Thursday — chronicle supernatural events around the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in the early 1980s.

Millie, who portrays the fan-favourite Eleven, says the show should go on for two-three more seasons.

“I want there to be at least two or three more (seasons). I think there’s so much more to be explored. Especially, like going into the ’90s. Imagine Stranger Things in the ’90s,” Millie, born in February 2004, said.

Millie, who recently made her film debut with the blockbuster Godzilla: King of the Monsters, said, she wants to be a part of more films. “It was so overwhelming to be in a film with such a legacy. Godzilla is literally one of the biggest stars in Hollywood... So just to be a part of the legacy was kind of attractive to me, and I’d love to be part of something like that in future. Stranger Things is iconic and it will always be remembered and same goes for Godzilla. I like to be a part of things that are going to be memorable. It’s amazing.”
