Netflix’s “Strangers Things” was a surprise hit that has since become immensely part of pop culture. A second season was always in the cards, and while a third, fourth, fifth, or even sixth haven’t been announced, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer have carte blanche to take the people of Hawkins, Indiana through as much hell as they want.
With the second season’s trailer blowing the roof off the San Diego Comic-Con this past July, and a premiere set for October 27nd, a third season announcement is imminent. While Netflix has yet to comment on the matter, the Duffer brothers confirmed Season 3 to Vulture, while also teasing the possibility of a fourth.
“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross exclaimed.
While a four-season arc may be disappointing to us die-hard fans, we should be grateful we’ll be able to head to the Upside Down that many times. In fact, the Duffers explain that they aren’t interested in pushing the boundaries of believability.
“I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year,” Matt explained.
And as for the end game, Ross did offer one hope for where the members of the Hawkins A.V. Club might go off to.
“They’re going to have to get the fuck out of this town!” Ross told the site. “It’s ridiculous!”
In the new season, “It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”
Confirmed for the second season are Paul Reiser, Brett Gelman, Linnea Berthelsen, Dacre Montgomery, Will Chase, Rob Morgan, and Sadie Sink. They join the returning Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, and Charlie Heaton.
“Stranger Things” returns to Netflix on October 27th.
