COVID-19 paused production on the fourth season of Stranger Things, so we’ll have to wait longer than expected to see how the hell Hopper survived the Starcourt Mall explosion and ended up in Siberia. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that when it finally makes it to Netflix, season four won’t be the last season of the sci-fi juggernaut/home of TV’s best dad. In a recent interview, series creators the Duffer Brothers revealed that there is a lot more Stranger Things on the way.
“Season 4 won’t be the end,” Ross Duffer said unequivocally. “We know what the end is, and we know when it is.”
It’s possible that there are plans for some kind of movie finale, but the smart money is on one more season — and maybe even more than one! — will make its way to Netflix in the coming years.
In the meantime, the Duffer Brothers are working on the scripts for a fourth season that has, in Ross’s words, “a little more humor in it, a little more action, and it just has a different feel than the past two seasons, which were set in the fall and a little more dreary and scary.”
The cast is staying busy too. Millie Bobby Brown is starring as Sherlock Holmes’s sister in Enola Holmes, a Netflix movie due out next month with a trailer that came out earlier this week. It might not be quite as exciting as a new season of Stranger Things, but we’re not complaining.
