Let’s start with the season 4 announcement

On Sept. 30, Netflix announced that it had renewed the hit show for another season. The Hollywood Reporter adds that the streaming giant signed the creators of the show, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, to a “multiple-year film and TV overall deal that sources say is worth nine figures.”

“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,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said to the outlet. “We can’t wait to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of the Upside Down.”

So, not only is another season of Stranger Things coming, but it looks like viewers will soon have access to new shows that are just as dramatic and juicy. (!!!)

Details about ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4

As of writing, there are not many details available. But we do have a few ideas of what to expect in the upcoming installment.

While speaking to Entertainment Weekly on July 9, the Duffer Brothers said the show would expand beyond Hawkins, Indiana.

“I think the biggest thing that’s going to happen is it’s going to open up a little bit, not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing portals into areas outside of Hawkins,” Matt Duffer said. 

Ross Duffer also teased that it would dive into who the unnamed American mentioned in the post-credits scene from the season 3 finale is.

“Obviously the question of who that American is in that cell and then also what they’re doing with the Demogorgon, is a tease,” Ross said. “That’s obviously going to play a huge role in a potential season four.”

We can’t say more than that, but there are already a bunch of theories floating around regarding what might happen in the show next.

Season 5 might be the last

Back in 2017, the brothers suggested that Stranger Things might not be one of those shows that stay on for years and years.

Ross told E! News at the season two premiere, “I think, you know, four to five seasons is likely where we’ll end up, but who knows? I mean, none of this official, and we know where we want to go. We’re trying to figure out still how long it’ll take to get there, so we’ll see.” 

“It’s hard, like four seems short, five seems long,” Matt added. “So I don’t know what to do.” 

We’d love to see it stay on longer, but we’re glad that it’s at least coming back for one more season. In the meantime, here are some shows you can watch that are similar to Stranger Things.
