'Stranger Things 4' Confirmed: 'We're Not In Hawkins Anymore'
Season four of 'Stranger Things' has officially been given the go-ahead by Netflix, with the teaser suggesting it will no longer take place in the town of Hawkins, Indiana.
The hugely popular series, created by Matt and Ross Duffer, today dropped a cryptic teaser trailer to announce the fourth season -- and while it didn't showcase any characters or scenes, it did give us one hint as to what to expect.
In the 38-second clip, it looks to focus on the grisly world of the Upside Down, with the phrase "We're not in Hawkins anymore" appearing during the final seconds of the trailer.
This seems to confirm what the Duffer Brothers teased following season three’s release earlier this year about the show expanding into areas outside the small town.
“I think the biggest thing that’s going to happen is it’s going to open up a little bit, not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins,” Matt Duffer told EW in July.
While there's not much else known about what we can expect for the new season, that's not stopping fans from coming up with theories as to what the future may hold for the show's characters.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement released Monday, “The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with 'Stranger Things' and we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love.”
He added, “We can’t wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down."
The brothers also thanked Netflix for taking “a huge chance on us and our show … We can’t wait to tell many more stories together — beginning, of course, with a return trip to Hawkins!”
