After month of speculation, Netflix confirmed that Stranger Things 4 is definitenly happening. The streaming website shared a teaser trailer for the the new season last night.
"We're Not In Hawkins Anymore," is all the caption read, which appears to be a nod to where things left off in Season three.
The Duffer Brothers told Entertainment Weekly that they want to take the story beyond Hawkins for Season four. "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 plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins," Matt Duffer told EW. His brother, Ross Duffer, also confirmed that the show would explore what was revealed in the Season 3 post-credits sequence: particularly, what the Russians are doing with a Demogorgon, and the identity of "the American" in the cell.
Though no exact date has been shared just yet, we can likely expect it sometime in 2020.
