Netflix has renewed sci-fi thriller “Stranger Things” for a fourth season and has signed series creators and showrunners The Duffer Brothers to a multi-year film and series overall deal. “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,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix. “We can’t wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down.”
Set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in November 1983, the first season of “Stranger Things” focused on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl (Millie Bobby Brown) with psychokinetic abilities who helps the missing boy’s friends in their search. The second season was set one year later in October 1984 and dealt with the characters’ attempts to return to normality and the aftermath of the events from the first season. The third season was set in July 1985.
“Stranger Things” is created by The Duffer Brothers and produced by Monkey Massacre Productions & 21 Laps Entertainment. The Duffer Brothers serve as executive producers on the series alongside Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps Entertainment and Iain Paterson.
