Netflix Announces Stranger Things Season 4

It’s official—Stranger Thingsis happening. Netflix made has released this brand new teaser affirming that the Duffer Brothers smash hit is returning for a fourth season. Fresh statements from Netflix and the Duffers also confirm a new multi-year deal. It appears that Stranger Things 4 will be moving beyond Hawkins, Indiana, thanks to the Byers family moving out of town at the end of season three. We also know from the post-credits scene after season three ended that there’s some nefarious business going down in Russia, where we think Jim Hopper (David Harbour) has somehow been taken.

Check out the new teaser here:

“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, in a statement. “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,” said The Duffer Brothers in a statement. “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!”

Stranger Things season 3 was a bigger, bolder affair, not only bringing in the Russian military and ultimately sending the Byers off on a new chapter outside of Hawkins but also in teasing out the changing dynamics between the core group of friends. The season ended with Hopper making the ultimate sacrifice—or so it appeared until that post-credits sequence suggested he somehow survived. Season four will answer that question, as well as move the action beyond Hawkins and into the larger world.
