It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for!

After a series of cryptic posts on social media this past weekend, along with the series changing their profile picture on all accounts, Stranger Things has just announced its fourth season. With the latest installment, which premiered July 4, being such a hit, the renewal was definitely a no-brainer for Netflix. And along with the announcement comes a cryptic teaser, concluding with the text: “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.” 

Fans have been speculating that the new season would be about time travel, and with the clock noises in the teaser above, we’re starting to believe it. Yesterday, the show’s social pages changed so that their photos now show what looks to be a clock, seemingly upside down. And as if that wasn’t enough to drive people wild, their account also tweeted out two emojis of a clock and an upside down smiley face.

While we don’t have a release date for the fourth season yet, at least we know officially that it’s in the works. And that’s not all. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, just signed a multi-year deal with Netflix which is reportedly worth nine figures. 

We might not be in Hawkins anymore, but we’re so excited for what’s next.
