The writers from Stranger Things have denied a major conspiracy theory that a scene between Jonathan Byers and Nancy Wheeler was cut from season one.

The moment takes place in the second ever episode, where Jonathan spies on Nancy in Steve Harrington’s bedroom.

He begins snapping photos, but appears to stop when Nancy begins to remove her clothes, and turn to take a photo of Barb sitting by the pool instead.

But some fans have claimed in the original cut of the episode, Jonathan continued to take pictures of his crush while she’s half naked.

In the next episode, a picture of Nancy undressing is shown, suggesting that the scene did take place.

However, the writers room have cleared up any doubts about the allegation, taking to their official Twitter to deny editing the scene.

They tweeted out: ‘PSA: no scenes from previous seasons have ever been cut or re-edited. And they never will be.’

When one fan asked: ‘So that also counts for the Jonathan spying on Nancy scene in S01, as many people believe?’ they replied: ‘Yes’. 

It comes after David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper in the sci-fi series, has admitted he thought it would be a ‘disaster’ when he began filming. 

Appearing from season one as one of the show’s core characters, the actor, 48, also revealed that on set the team ‘thought nobody would watch it’.

During an appearance on The One Show on Monday, David chatted to presenters Alex Jones and Jermaine Jenas on the whopping success of the Netflix show.

‘Did you expect it to be such a huge success?,’ questioned Jermaine.

Explaining he had no idea of the scale it would get to, David replied: ‘Not at all. I remember when we were shooting the first season down in Atlanta, Netflix had given us a budget of about $20.

‘Halfway through I remember my hair person coming up to me, about episode four we were shooting, and she was like “I don’t think it’s gonna work”.

Continuing: ‘I was like “what!” so by the time we wrapped up filming I thought we wouldn’t get a second season. We’d be the first Netflix show ever to never get a second season. We thought no one would watch it and it was gonna be a disaster.’

And referencing the show bringing Kate Bush’s 1985 hit Running Up That Hill back into the charts, Alex jested: ‘And here you are, I mean nobody’s more surprised than Kate Bush to be fair.’

‘You’re welcome, Kate!,’ laughed David. 

Not only has Stranger Things risen to enormous popularity, but David’s character has also become one of the most loved amongst fans, as he portrays the disheveled chief of police with a kind heart.

The recent series’ release was reported to be the most popular premiere weekend ever for an English TV show on Netflix, shooting to no.1 in over 90 countries.
