Netflix has renewed Stranger Things for season 4. The new season was supposed to be released early 2021 but has been delayed due to months of TV studio shutdowns due to the pandemic. According to the latest estimates, season 4 is expected to release late 2021 but the date has not been confirmed yet. Netflix has renewed the worldwide hit series Stranger Things for a fourth season and signed series creators and showrunners The Duffer Brothers to a multi-year film and series overall deal.
Set in a small, quiet American town of 1980’s Indiana, Stranger Things is a science fiction, mystery-thriller TV show. It features a young boy, Will Byers, disappearing and the search for him by his mother, a police chief, and friends while encountering terrifying supernatural forces.
Season three, filled with mysteries of the "Upside Down," an alternate dimension, ended with the boy’s discovery. However, the end hinted that he might not have returned entirely.
The first three seasons of the show resulted in high ratings leaving viewers anticipating the fourth season.
