Ross (left) and Matt Duffer (right), the creators of the series.

Matt and Ross Duffer were planning, in early 2017, to produce four or five seasons of Stranger Things , wanting to do "  a really finite ending  " while the show is at the height of its success, according to Matt Duffer, rather than letting it go. stretch endlessly 7 . In  August 2017, while confirming a third season, the Duffer brothers put the possibility of a fourth season. Ross states that they "think it's going to be a four-season [series]" only to end series 8 . However, Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy later hinted that four or five seasons in total were possible, saying "the truth is, we're definitely going to do four seasons, and there's a good chance there will be more." have a fifth. Beyond that, I think it's unlikely” 9 . Matt later adds that no official decision was made, citing that“It's hard, like four [seasons] seems short, five [seasons] seems long. So I don't know what to do” 10 . InApril 2018, Shawn Levy confirms that a fourth season will be produced, while adding that there are possibilities for a fifth season 11 .

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly which takes place shortly before the release of season 3, the series creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, reveal that the writers of the series have already met on several occasions to discuss the future. of the 12 series .

On September 30, 2019, Netflix announces that it has signed a multi-year contract with the Duffer brothers for television and cinema, the value of which is estimated at nine figures 13 , 14 . To coincide with the production offer, Netflix announces the renewal of Stranger Things for a fourth season by releasing a one-minute teaser on the YouTube platform 15 . The teaser, showing a  grandfather clock in the Upside Down, ends with " We 're not in Hawkins anymore " ), leading to several speculations from many media outlets that the fourth season is filmed in Russia. The second teaser is released onMay 6, 2021, featuring Dr. Brenner saying " Eleven , are  you listening "  to Eleven , performed by Millie Bobby Brown, who is locked behind an "11" door inside the National Laboratory of Hawkins .

The fourth season is not the last .

EndJuly 2021, Shawn Levy announces that the fourth season of Stranger Things is coming “soon” .  On August 3,  he responds to a question from Steven Weintraub of the Collider website , saying that "by the time of the broadcast we will have at least given a little something" while adding that "by the time Free Guy comes out, the August 13, part of the answer will be known .

He adds that there will be “  a little taste of something  ” , but that would not be a full trailer 19 . theAugust 6, a preview is released that is 30 seconds long, featuring most of the cast. Noah Schnapp , Winona Ryder , Charlie Heaton , Cara Buono and Brett Gelman meanwhile are absent from the  preview . In the preview, a voice says “  Something's coming. It is almost here  ” . While the Comic Book Resources site credits the voice to Mike Wheeler's (Finn Wolfhard) character , the Radio Times magazine website identifies Eleven  . This preview also reveals that the release of Stranger Things 4 will be done in 2022, but no date is then specified. That same day, in the evening, the preview aired during coverage of the Tokyo Summer Olympics on American channel NBC 23 .

On Stranger Things Day on November 6, a fourth and final teaser is released, showing Will and Eleven in California, while revealing the titles of the episodes later the same day .


It is reported that Netflix originally wanted the third and fourth seasons of Stranger Things to be written simultaneously in order to facilitate a back-to-back production schedule, as the actors were aging faster than their on-screen characters. But the Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy have decided to focus only on the third season, to ensure that it is better developed and fleshed out.

Influences for this season come from Alien 3 (1992) and The Great Escape (1963)  .

Shawn Levy , director and executive producer of Stranger Things.

Commenting on the end of the previous season, Ross Duffer, one of the series' creators, divulges the process of connecting the story arc between seasons:

“We don't want to write alone in a corner, so we're trying to have those early discussions with the writers to make sure we're ready to go in the right direction. We don't know a lot, but we know a lot in outline. By the end of season two, we knew about Billy. We knew the Russians were coming. We didn't know about the mall and such, but then again, we know the general lines. That's sort of where we're at in Season 4. We know the broad outlines. It is now a question of filling in these outlines in detail. We are excited about the direction this could take. Again, as we said, it's going to be very different this season.12 .

Matt Duffer says one of the "biggest lines" is that the center of the action is moved out of Hawkins, Indiana for the majority of the season, a Series 12 first . It also reveals that several elements left over from the end of Season 3, such as the presumed death of Jim Hopper and Eleven who is adopted by Joyce Byers and her move with her new family out of state, will be explored over the course of the series. fourth season.

On November 6, 2019, in celebration of Stranger Things Day , the series' official social media accounts reveal the title of the first episode of the season ( "  Chapter One: The Hellfire Club  " ) and that the episode is written and directed by the Duffer Brothers . the  June 18, 2020, the account of the writers of the series, on the Twitter platform, publishes “the complete season” of the scripts, all piled up. From these stacked scenarios, several media such as TechRadar , Associated Press , MCE TV , Narcity Quebec, Collider, Première and GamesRadar speculate that there would be nine episodes on the program, but nothing is confirmed 27 .

To avoid similarities between the film set of Black Widow (2021) and that of the fourth season of Stranger Things, where the two productions are filming in a "Russian prison" , David Harbor sends photos of the filming location of Black Widow to Matt and Ross Duffer, so the Duffer brothers don't use the same David look, or the same set colors, or the same costumes. Matt and Ross then found a new look and shaved the head of Jim Hopper, the character played by David Harbor .


“  Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. »

—Matt and Ross Duffer

Prior to the airing of the previous season , Noah Schnapp  , Natalia Dyer , series creators Matt and Ross Duffer , Finn Wolfhard  and Millie Bobby Brown  , and executive producer Shawn Levy had given hints about the “  tone  ” or how season 3 was going to be unlike previous seasons. For example, Ross Duffer had quoted that, although it is the "funniest season" , it is also "the most disgusting [season]" , an opinion shared by Noah Schnapp and Natalia Dyer.

On the side of Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown, who respectively play the roles of Mike and Eleven, they had mentioned that "it's the summer of love" .

A month after the production of the fourth season was halted due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Joe Keery reveals to Total Film that "the series [is] even more frightening than the previous seasons" ,  an opinion shared by Gaten Matarazzo , who claims that the season is also “the scariest”  .

On February 12, 2021, in an interview on CBC Radio of the Société Radio-Canada , Finn Wolfhard confirms, in turn, that season 4 is the darkest. In this regard, he explains: “[...] Each season, [the series] becomes darker. With the third season, I said to myself: “this is the darkest season that there will be”.

But actually, season 4 so far… it's the darkest season that's ever been made. Every year it gets funnier, darker and sadder. Every year, they amplify it” . His views would later be shared by Sadie Sink , who commented that the season was "very, very dark" and "really intense" while stating that"Every season the level of production gets bigger and bigger, and the stakes are really, really high this year - as they always are" .

O n  April 1 , 2021, in an interview with Entertainment Television , Gaten thinks the tone of season 4 is different:

“I think the tone is definitely mature, and I think they did that intentionally because I think they want their show to evolve with the characters. As you age as adults, we must age as characters. »

In July 2021, Caleb McLaughlin reveals to Complex magazine that the plot of the 4th  season is “crazy” and that “no one knows what will happen. It's crazy”  .

At the start of ,August, Shawn Levy reports that the season is "visually and narratively very ambitious – much more ambitious than the previous three seasons .

In an interview with Collider , Shawn Levy, director and executive producer of Stranger Things , states how the Covid-19 Pandemic is impacting the season:

“I will just say that the Pandemic has definitely delayed the filming of the season and therefore the launch of season 4, the date of which is to be determined. But it had a very positive impact by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time, to write the whole season before filming it and have enough time to rewrite in a way that they rarely did before, so the quality of these scripts is exceptional, perhaps better than ever”  .

According to TVLine editor and founder Michael Ausiello , the fourth season originally consisted of eight episodes  , but due to the unexpected shutdown of production due to the pandemic, the Duffer brothers reportedly managed to write one episode. more than the expected number  .
