Having only dropped onto Netflix last week, the 3rd season of Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things is being reported to have hit new heights in viewing figures so it comes as no surprise talk about a 4th season is already on people’s lips.

Showrunners Ross and Matt Duffer have been doing press interviews for the new season and have decided to tease us all with what they could possibly be planning for the 4th season even though it has yet to be greenlit at the streaming giant. During an interview with EW, The Duffer Brothers mentioned that next time we could well be heading out of Hawkins and moving away from the plot tropes that have made the series such a success.

“We don’t want to write ourselves in a corner so we try to have these early discussions with the writers just to make sure that we’re setting ourselves up to go in the right direction. We don’t know a lot, but we do know a lot of the big broad strokes…. that’s sort of where we are in season four. We have the big broad strokes. It’s just now about filling in those lines in the details. We’re pretty excited about where it’s potentially going to go. Again, like we said, it’s going to feel very different than this season. But I think that’s the right thing to do and I think it’ll be exciting.”

Since the new season’s launch on July 4th, Netflix has reported that 40.7 million accounts have watched the show, making it the biggest-ever audience on the streaming service for any film or TV series in its first four days.
