The end is not near for "Stranger Things."

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the show's creators, the Duffer brothers, confirmed season 4 will not be the last for the Netflix hit.

"Season four won't be the end," Ross Duffer said. "We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story."

Work on the fourth season had just begun when the coronavirus pandemic caused production to shut down in March. The unexpected downtime gave the writers an opportunity to expand on the storylines.

"We've had a lot more time to work on the scripts," said Matt Duffer. "For the first time, we have all the scripts written and we're able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments."

"Everyone's excited to get back to work, but the priority is the safety of the cast and crew, and that will dictate when we go back," Ross added.

With production on the series still on hold, Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin on the Netflix series, came up with a summer gig to fill his free time.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed with Matarazzo's rep that the "Stranger Things" actor has taken up a job running food at a Long Beach Island restaurant where a few of his family members are employed.

The New Jersey native has been recognized by fans despite wearing a hat and face mask while on the job.

Prior to the start of the pandemic, a teaser was released for season 4 back in February.

No doubt fans are eager to return to the Upside Down as its been over a year since the third season of "Stranger Things" dropped on July 4, 2019.
