Stranger Things 3 has left some big questions unanswered. Luckily for fans, a fourth season is underway and already in production. Netflix has already released a teaser for it, too. The details remain slim for now, but we’ve gathered everything we know about Stranger Things 4 so far.
1 | Netflix has confirmed that a fourth season is happening.
After months of speculation, the streaming giant confirmed Stranger Things 4 with a teaser that shows the number four in the series’ iconic neon lettering, placed somewhere in the Upside Down.
Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) said while sharing the clip in an Instagram post, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore,” referencing the small Indiana town where the events in Stranger Things take place. The series seems to move beyond Hawkins’s borders, especially since Season 3 ended with Eleven and the Byers family moving out of town, follows by post-credits scene in Russia, according to Entertainment Weekly. Showrunner Matt Duffer had also told the outlet he wanted to “open up” the story “into areas outside of Hawkins.”
In the past few years, the Stranger Things creative team has dropped hints that the series would continue for more than three seasons. Shawn Levy conclusively told Collider in April 2018, “I mean I will say we have a good sense of stuff that happens in Season 4. Season 4 is definitely happening.” However, those storylines have not yet been revealed.
As of right now, no premiere date has been announced, but we do know that Hopper is back. (Keep scrolling.)
2 | It’s unclear if this will be the last season.
Levy told Collider that there’s “very much the possibility” of the show going for more than four seasons, but “that’s currently undecided.”
He also told Entertainment Weekly in 2017, “The truth is we’re definitely going four seasons and there’s very much the possibility of a fifth. Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely.”
However, showrunner Ross Duffer is ready for the next season to be the show’s last. He told Vulture in 2017, “We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out.” He was concerned that the story would grow to be too much for our beloved characters in Hawkins, Indiana. “I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year,” he said. “They’re going to have to get the fuck out of this town!”
3 | The Duffer Brothers are still on board.
In February 2018, rumors circulated that Matt and Ross Duffer would no longer be involved in Stranger Things “in a showrunner capacity” after Season 3, but Netflix quickly shut that gossip down.
“Don’t drop your Eggos. Rumors that the Duffer Bros are leaving Stranger Things after Season 3 are false,” the company tweeted.
