So…Is It Too Early to Start Thinking About 'Stranger Things' 4?

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the third season of Stranger Things! Stop reading now if you haven’t seen it yet.

You probably just got done binge watching the third season of Stranger Things, and we 1. want to congratulate you and 2. offer you a snack…or a pillow. The third season was just as intense as the cast hinted, and there are so many storylines that we need resolved: Are Eleven and the Byers ever going to move back to Hawkins? Can Eleven ever regain her powers? And what about the Starcourt Mall (RIP)?

The new season of the hit Netflix show hasn’t been announced yet, but we’re pretty sure it will be in the next coming weeks or months.

Here’s what you need to know about season 4 of Stranger Things.

The release date for Stranger Things 4 could be in 2020.

Season one of Stranger Things premiered on July 15, 2016, and the second season followed on October 27, 2017. If the show continues to follow the July/October schedule, season 4 could release in October 2020.

While the fourth season hasn’t been greenlit yet, The Express notes that Netflix usually renews its original programming in the weeks after the previous season’s release. Additionally, Shawn Levy, the show’s producer and director, told Collider that, “I mean I will say we have a good sense of stuff that happens in Season Four. Season Four is definitely happening.”

The fourth season may be the show’s series finale.

As Digital Spy reports, the Duffer brothers previously told Vulture that they envision four seasons for the show. “We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross explained. However, Levy also told Collider that, “There’s very much the possibility of a season beyond that one [season four].

Stranger Things 4 will probably take place in 1986.

As Popbuzz reports, each season of Stranger Things has taken place a year apart from each other. Season one was set in 1983, then 1984 in season two, and 1985 for season three. So, barring a time jump, season four will be set in 1986.

Most of the cast will be back for Stranger Things 4.

We can expect to see our favorite kids — Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and Sadie —back in the fold for season 4. And even if Eleven and Will don’t move back to Hawkins, we suspect that they’ll be part of the storyline either way. Hopper will almost definitely be back, although Joyce’s future is a bit iffy right now.

However, one character we can expect not to see is Billy. He was killed at the end of season three after being possessed by the Mind Flayer. So sad. Kind of.
