If you were one of the thousands of people that, for a short while didn’t sleep in a bid to watch the full third season in one sitting, we’ve got you. And in an exciting new announcement for fanatics of the ’80s gang of kids, Stranger Things has been renewed for a fourth season. Announced via Netflix, series creators and showrunners The Duffer Brothers have signed 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 anticipated announcement was accompanied by a video, eerily revealing, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.”

With the pattern of the season releases, the fourth instalment is expected in late 2020 or early 2021. Stranger Things 3 left many unanswered questions including the fate of Chief Hopper and whether Eleven will get her powers back.

In the meantime, stay tuned for further developments.
