Stranger Things on Netflix continues to be a huge hit for the streaming service and the third season is already filming. For fans of the series, there was some unexpected news that could relieve some of the tension those fans might feel at the end of the upcoming season.
According to an interview with Collider, Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy confirmed that the series would be getting a fourth season.
Levy states that the fourth season is “definitely happening” and that there could possibly be a season 5 after. His complete statement reads:
“I mean I will say we have a good sense of stuff that happens in Season Four. Season Four is definitely happening. There’s very much the possibility of a season beyond that one, that’s currently undecided. And what I would just say is part of the chaos and fun of this particular show is that while the Duffers and the writer’s room and we producers outline the entire season, the Duffers really use the writing process to revisit, reassess and question all of their prior assumption. So even though we always start off with a good sense of the major arcs of the season. We’re always ready for shifts and surprises because if the Duffers stumble into a different or surprising inspiration while they rewrite the script, we’re going to follow that inspiration and throw out some ideas in order to embrace some new ones that are more exciting. And I have no doubt that Season 3 will be no exception.” he said.
With season three raising the stakes for the characters and the addition of new characters played by Cary Elwes and Jake Busey, it looks like season three has some breathing room to tell some big stories with a fourth season already confirmed.
