“Stranger Things” Season Four Is Leaving Hawkins Behind

The Duffer Brothers aren’t going anywhere, but the show’s setting is.

Despite cancelling such masterpieces as Tuca & Bertie and bringing BoJack Horseman to an upcoming ending, Netflix has renewed Stranger Things for a fourth season, because capitalism cannot be stopped. The company said more than 40 million accounts watched season three within four days of its release, so no surprise there. 

Via Twitter today, the streaming service announced the new season and hinted that it will entail exploring a world beyond Hawkins, Indiana. Let’s hope it’s better than that universally loathed episode where Eleven went rogue and joined a Suicide Squad. 

There’s no premiere date as of yet, though Netflix also announced the show’s co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer have signed a nine-figure multiyear overall film and series deal with them. So keep your eyes peeled for lots more Duffer content. 

Watch the teaser below.
