Stranger Things season 4 will “feel very different,” showrunners say

Posted Filed under

Now that Stranger Things season 3 is out there in the world, talk is already starting to turn to Stranger Things season 4. Here’s what the Duffer Brothers, who created and continue to run the show, have said…

“We don’t want to write ourselves in a corner so we try to have these early discussions with the writers just to make sure that we’re setting ourselves up to go in the right direction,” Ross Duffer said in an interview with EW. “We don’t know a lot, but we do know a lot of the big broad strokes. At the end of season two, we knew about Billy. We knew that the Russians were going to come in. We didn’t know the mall and stuff, but again, we know these big broad strokes. That’s sort of where we are in season four. We have the big broad strokes. It’s just now about filling in those lines in the details. We’re pretty excited about where it’s potentially going to go. Again, like we said, it’s going to feel very different than this season. But I think that’s the right thing to do and I think it’ll be exciting.”

Matt Duffer added this: “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.”

Also, executive producer Shawn Levy said this: “Certainly season three ends with several plot strands that are separate from each other. And should there be a season 4, I think we’ll see them all explored.”

It’s worth remembering that the next season hasn’t been announced by Netflix yet, but we’d be very surprised if it didn’t happen. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more…
