We’re going back to The Upside Down.
Netflix has officially announced season four of Stranger Things, nearly three months after the release of the show’s critically acclaimed third season on July 4. The first glimpse at the next chapter for the series, ends with an ominous note, saying “we’re not in Hawkins anymore” as a bell rings out.

The announcement of the another season for the breakout hit, comes along with the announcement of a new overall deal creators The Duffer Brothers have inked with the streaming service. “We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix,” the Duffers say in a statement. “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 new deal includes another season of Stranger Things, but also has the creators helming new films and series for the platform.
“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,” explains Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in the same statement. “We can’t wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down.”
The deal with The Duffer Brothers follows other recent overall multi-year deals with Game Of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy and Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder creator Shonda Rhimes.
As of now, no release date has been announced for season four of Stranger Things.
