The Duffer Brothers defend making the 'Stranger Things' season 4 finale over 2 hours long

Ross Duffer told Variety that people can pause the over two-hour "Stranger Things" season four, part two finale if they wish

In an interview with Variety, the "Stranger Things" showrunners discussed the show's fourth season, which concludes on Friday on Netflix

The first part of the season, which aired on May 27 with seven episodes, is scheduled to end with a two-hour 

And 19-minute finale, according to the official "Stranger Things" writers' room Twitter account.

Despite some skepticism, the Duffer Brothers told Variety that the runtime was necessary

"We looked at the final episode since it's so long, there wasn't a good spot to break it up," Ross Duffer told Variety

Stranger Things premiered on Netflix in 2016 and has since become one of the platform's most popular shows

Despite the fact that they and Netflix anticipated the season's final episodes to run long, they did not anticipate that the other episodes would be "supersized" as well
