The announcement comes with a video from the streaming giant which seems to confirm that we will be moving beyond the boundaries of Hawkins, Indiana for the newest installment. It makes sense as we saw the Byers family and Eleven packing up to leave town in the final episode of season three along with those strange scenes from an unnamed Russian compound.
The fourth season deal also came with the news that the show’s creators, Ross and Matt Duffer aka the Duffer Brothers, have signed a multi-year film and television deal with Netflix.
“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 release. “We can’t wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down.”
This is a fantastic opportunity for the Duffer Brothers, but we’re not ready for them to step outside of Stranger Things just yet. Each season of the series answers a handful of questions while creating more to take their place. Their pitch perfect 80s-infused storytelling has earned a rabid and loyal audience who patiently (mostly) await the arrival of each new season.
There is, of course, no word yet on when the newest season will begin filming, but iHorror will keep you posted on all the latest details as they become available!
