Stranger Things Season Four

The inevitable is now official: we are getting a fourth season of Stranger Things. Netflix announced on Monday that they have renewed the hit series for a fourth run. In addition, they have signed the Duffer Brothers, who created and have served as showrunners on the series, to a multi-year film and series overall deal.

“The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with Stranger Things and we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix. “We can’t wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix. Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright, and Matt Thunell took a huge chance on us and our show — and forever changed our lives. From our first pitch meeting to the release of Stranger Things 3, the entire team at Netflix has been nothing short of sensational, providing us with the kind of support, guidance, and creative freedom we always dreamed about. We can’t wait to tell many more stories together — beginning, of course, with a return trip to Hawkins!”

The news is by no means a shock. Stranger Things is the biggest hit in the service’s catalog of original series, setting viewership records in its third season. There were reports in August that the show would begin production in October.

The new teaser video suggests a much wider scope to the show, as it teases, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.” You can see it below.
