‘Stranger Things’ confirmed for a 4th season on Netflix

‘Stranger Things 4’ official teaser trailer
WATCH: The Duffer Brothers' popular Netflix original, 'Stranger Things,' was confirmed for a fourth season on Monday after a mysterious and cryptic teaser trailer dropped. The tagline reads, "We're not in Hawkins anymore," suggesting that the upcoming episodes could be some of the biggest yet and take the beloved main characters out of their haunted town, or the state of Indiana altogether.

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.

“We can’t wait to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down,” said Sarandos on the upcoming season.
