Just a couple of months after Netflix debuted Stranger Things 3, the company has announced that the fourth season of the show will be headed our way in the coming year. The first teaser for Stranger Things 4 dropped and it looks like we are not going to be visiting Hawkins anymore.
The teaser is hinting on a setting outside of Hawkins, Indiana, the town we have come to know over the past three seasons of the show. The announcement came in the form of brief video teaser with the tagline “we’re not in Hawkins anymore”.
The last time the show went outside of Hawkins was in season two where Eleven escaped to try and track down her “lab sister” in Chicago. The episode was highly debated whether or not it fits into the overall theme of the show and hardcore fans complained about the Duffer Brothers choice of direction.

Stranger Things 4 does not have a release date yet but the teaser now serves as confirmation that the show will be continuing with Matt and Ross Duffer at the helm. The two have signed a multiyear film and series deal with Netflix.

The third season of Stranger Things was a massive success with more than 40 million accounts supposedly watching the show within the first four days of its debut. It broke multiple records for Netflix and the success helped grow the subscriber numbers for the platform too.
