The hit drama will return in 2020.
September 30, 2019
Netflix announced today that Stranger Things has been picked up for a fourth season. The good news, which is really no surprise given the series' continued popularity, comes just under three months after the drama's Season 3 release.
The 1980s-themed horror/mystery drama burst onto the scene in 2016 and quickly gained a huge pop culture following backed by plenty of critical praise and awards. Everything from its captivating storytelling and likable characters, to its creepy atmosphere and nostalgic references, really struck a chord with a wide range of viewers.
Created by the Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things takes place in Hawkins, Indiana and follows a group of kids who become friends with a mysterious girl that possesses psychokinetic abilities. They discover an alternate dimension known as the Upside Down, which starts to have an increasing affect on the town and its residents.
There is not much known regarding Season 4 in terms of returning cast members or story line, but a teaser released today reveals that the setting will, at least in part, take place outside of Hawkins. While no premiere date is known, a mid-to-late 2020 return appears likely.

I'm making my shocked face...

This was no surprise. The creators have already admitted a 5 season plot line is pretty much all they want. I just hope it ends as good as it started. Can't wait for season 4.

Not saying Stranger Things is higher quality, but it is MUCH MORE popular than Lucifer, Sense8, and Santa Clarita Diet. On Facebook, Stranger Things has 7 million likes, Lucifer has 2 million, Sense8 has 1.7 million, and Santa Clairta Diet has 400,000. Nothing against those shows and I do miss them but Stranger Things is quite possibly the most secure show on Netflix now so I wasn’t surprised either.

"no surprise given its popularity..." you mean like the dried up viewer ratings of Lucifer, Sense8, and Santa Clarita Diet?
Stranger Things is still one of my favorite shows, but considering Netflix's magic-wand renewal practices, its clear there is no point in becoming invested on any show on the network now...

Great , this is one of my favorite tv shows. And it's great to see a show taking place in the 80's. We had scy fy's "deadly class" , but it was cancelled and we have a few comedies still around thankfully. So wonderful news.
