Stranger Things is one of Netflix’s biggest hits and it was just a matter of time before it was renewed for another season – and that moment finally arrived. The beloved fantasy series will come back for Season 4, which will take us outside of Hawkins.
Netflix announced the news by dropping a short teaser that features the recognizable logo and sinister music from the opening credits, some spooky Upside Down imagery and a caption that reads “We’re not in Hawkins anymore” with the Westminster Chimes in the background.
In addition to renewing this show, Netflix’s bosses decided to expand their relationship with Stranger Things creators the Duffer Brothers by signing a multi-year deal. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos praised their creativity and said they can’t wait to see what this duo has in store when they step outside the world of the Upside Down.
“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,” Sarandos said in a statement.
The fourth season of Stranger Things still doesn’t have an official release date, but it’s safe to expect that our favorite cast members will return to their respective roles.
