The Duffer Brothers have been teasing the fourth season of Stranger Things since all the way back in February when it was revealed that Hopper is alive and trapped in a Russian prison. We also know that the season premiere is titled "Chapter One: The Hellfire Club," and that the upcoming season will feature a host of "cool" new guest stars. While we have to wait until it premieres to figure out where Joyce and the kids moved or what monster will be crawling out of the Upside Down next, it seems that series creators have more than just season four figured out.

As reported by DigitalSpy, the Matt and Ross Duffer have revealed they have an overall plan for the Stranger Things story and that they have known for a while how the Netflix series will conclude.

"We like to look at each season as kind of its own complete story," Matt told Deadline. "We do have a pretty large mythology [...] and season by season, we're turning the page and revealing a little bit more and more. So we do have a general sense of where we're going. We've known the ending of the show for quite a while."

Matt continued, "I mean, the honest truth is, we didn't know if we would go beyond season one. So we liked the idea that season one could function as its own standalone limited series, but it had the potential to go beyond that. But yeah, we have an ending in mind, we don't want to keep churning it out."

It's awesome the creators have such a clear idea of where the Stranger Things story is headed. Hopefully the rest of the seasons, how ever many there may be, will be just as enthralling as the first three.
