Stranger Things has just been confirmed for a fourth season.
Netflix confirmed the news on Monday, only three months after the release of the much-beloved show’s third season.
The 35-second clip opens up with the classic Stranger Things theme and logo — with the number 4 appearing behind it — as done in all prior seasons. Though this time around, the red glow of the title card flickers on and off before its colours invert entirely.
A light then flashes, and the logo is seen in the fictional, yet terrifying “upside down” world, where the words are quickly overgrown by tree branches.
The scene cuts to black and a tagline appears, reading: “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.”
For the fourth year in a row, the Duffer Brothers, the show’s creators and producers, are returning in charge of the series and have also signed “a multi-year film and series deal,” according to a statement released by Netflix.
While there are no details or specifics on Stranger Things 4, fans are hoping that the show picks up right where it left off. At a major cliffhanger.
Since the conclusion of the third season, the suggested death of Jim Hopper (portrayed by David Harbour) has left many of the show’s dedicated followers in panic, with many exercising their own theories and expectations for the next season on social media.
Here’s what some Twitter users had to say:
“we're not in hawkins anymore” because the byers moved and hopper can be either in the upside down or russia
