The only surprise to the news that Stranger Things 4 is happening at Netflix is that it took so long to announce.
Netflix announced the arrival of Stranger Things 4 with an announcement video. There’s no indication of when we’ll see the new episodes.
It seems that the delay in announcing the new season was a side effect of series creators The Duffer Brothers striking a new deal with Netflix. The pair have signed a new multi-year deal with the streaming outlet rumored to be in the nine figures.
“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 Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “We can’t wait to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of the Upside Down.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix. Back in early 2015, Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright and Matt Thunell took a huge chance on us and our show — and forever changed our lives,” the Duffers said in a joint statement. “From that first pitch meeting to the release of Stranger Things 3, the entire Netflix team has been nothing short of sensational, providing us with the kind of support, guidance and creative freedom we always dreamed about. We can’t wait to tell many more stories together — beginning, of course, with a return trip to Hawkins!”
This new deal is for anything the Duffer Brothers decide to work on and does not restrict them to just Stranger Things.
What will they come up with next? Only time will tell.
