"Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown has expressed interest in making the show's final season a musical. The actress said she would like to be a writer for the finale and make it a musical like the iconic musical episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." The finale is still in pre-production, so Brown's idea is not a complete impossibility.

The Duffer Brothers have shared very little news on the final season, but they have confirmed that it'll be shorter than season four and conclude the various storylines. Brown also addressed rumors that she'd be in the confirmed 'Stranger Things' spin-off. She didn't outrightly deny it but said she would love to mentor another actress in a similar role.

Brown, who plays the role of Eleven on "Stranger Things," spoke to Total Film about some of her ideas for the series finale of the famous show. The actress said she would love to be given creative control and make it a musical.

Brown said, "I'd love to be the writer! I'd make it more of a musical. But, you know, they don't entrust it in the hands of me, which they should." She gave an example of a musical episode she'd use as inspiration for her musical idea. The show she mentioned is a long-running FX comedy starring Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson, and Rob McElhenney.

She continued, "Trust me, I can do the finale to 'Stranger Things,' and it would be great. I think it should be like 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.' Did you ever see the musical episode? It needs to end like that—a musical episode." The musical episode she referred to was a rock opera the cast performed in an episode titled "The Nightman Cometh."
