It’s come as no real surprise, but Netflix has confirmed that they have commissioned a fourth season of their most successful original series ‘Stranger Things’.
Whilst production info is being kept tightly under wraps, the show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer stated how thrilled they are to continue working on the series and Netflix.
“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix. Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright, and Matt Thunell took a huge chance on us and our show — and forever changed our lives. 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!”
To accompany the announcement a teaser for the fourth was revealed hinting at the fact, that this time around, the strange adventure takes the action out of Hawkins for a brand new location.
The Duffer brothers had previously mentioned that a fourth series would, in fact, move out of Hawkins and 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.”
The Netflix Original Series created by The Duffer Brothers and produced by Monkey Massacre Productions & 21 Laps Entertainment. The Duffer Brothers serve as executive producers on the series alongside Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps Entertainment and Iain Paterson.
