The Duffer Brothers Tease Stranger Things Season 4
In an interview with EW, Stranger Things creators Ross and Matt Duffer have confirmed that they already have mapped out a plan for the next season for the inevitable fourth season. The duo also revealed a few details on what we should expect for the potential new season.
“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. “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.”
“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.” Matt Duffer said.
On how will the third season’s cliffhanger affect the fourth season’s story, Ross added, “Assuming there’s a season 4, obviously the question of who that American is in that cell and then also what they’re doing with the Demogorgon, is a tease, that’s obviously going to play a huge role in a potential season four.”
“Certainly season three ends with several plot strands that are separate from each other,” executive producer Shawn Levy said. “And should there be a season 4, I think we’ll see them all explored.”
Stranger Things has received 18 Emmy nominations last year (with five wins) and was honored with the 2017 SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, as well as the 2017 Norman Felton Producer of the Year Award in Episodic Television — Drama from the Producers Guild of America.
