Duffer Brothers: ‘Stranger Things’ Won’t End After Fourth Season

Matt and Ross Duffer this week made the many fans of their highly successful Stranger Things very happy–the Netflix series will not end after the upcoming fourth season.

The Duffer Brothers–who act as showrunners for the series–confirmed that Stranger Things will indeed carry on to Season 5, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

“Season 4 won’t be the end,” Ross Duffer said during an interview. “We know what the end is, and we know when it is.”

He added that the ongoing COVID-19 crisis “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.”

The upcoming fourth season, as reported, was in production in Georgia earlier in the year before the pandemic shut things down. No official date for the resumption of shooting has been confirmed, but it’s been reported that a mid-September restart is probable. No debut date for Season 4 has been set as of this writing.

Looking back at Season 3–which picked up five Emmy Award nominations, including one for Outstanding Drama–fans were treated to the youngsters of Hawkins, Ind. spending the summer of 1985 at the Starcourt Mall while dealing with the threat of the alternate dimension known as The Upside Down.

Season 4–slated for either eight or nine episodes–will feature “a new horror beginning to surface,” according to the Duffer Brothers, “something long buried, something that connects everything.”

The Netflix series–which stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown–will welcome Joel Stoffer (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) to the cast for the fourth season.
