I feel really, really excited about it.’ So we pay attention to what that is and whether or not we go ahead with it.”
Ross Duffer added: “The key for us is that it has to feel like our own thing, not that we’re just redoing what we’ve already done, because what would be the point of that? I think we have something that could be pretty exciting. Let’s see…”
