Stranger Things 4 Announced by Netflix in First Teaser

The hit series is no longer exclusively set in Hawkins as it is picked up for a fourth season.

Netflix has officially renewed Stranger Things for a fourth season, not that this comes as a huge shocker for those who have been following along with the show’s success thus far. Dubbed Stranger Things 4, the new episodes appear to be heading into new territory outside of Hawkins, Indiana with the official tagline reading, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.” Despite that, The Duffer Brothers assured fans in a press release that the show will not be abandoning the iconic location altogether.

Back in July, we reported that the new season was likely to begin filming this fall, with October in particular being penciled in by the streaming platform. With today’s release of the very first teaser for Stranger Things 4, it looks like everything is lining up right on schedule. This announcement comes on the heels of a new multi-year deal between The Duffer Brothers and Netflix, setting up a partnership for a slew of various film and television projects going forward, this new season chief among them.

A fall filming schedule could set Stranger Things 4 up for a late 2020 or early 2021 release and may even wrap up the series, although earlier reports indicated that it could potentially see five seasons in total (or more if it makes sense to continue). For now, however, the most pressing questions involve an American imprisoned in Russia, the presence of another Demogorgon, and how fate might bring our group of friends back together once more.

Stranger Things is now streaming its third season, titled Stranger Things 3, on Netflix. As always, be sure to stay tuned for all of the latest updates on the show right here on Dead Entertainment.
