The recently confirmed Season 4 of Stranger Things is beginning to take more shape.

TVLine reports that the showrunners have determined that eight episodes will be enough time to tell the next installation of the story. This is in-line with past seasons as Season 1 and 3 were also eight episodes, while Season 2 was stretched to nine.

Though Netflix denied to comment on the length of the upcoming season, the publication says that it is slated to begin filming in January, wrapping up in August. Though the next installment likely won’t be ready in time to enjoy it in the summer like this year, it will be exciting to have it to watch (hopefully) around Halloween 2020.

One thing is for sure: the Duffer Brothers have their work cut out for them. This season will have to tackle half of the Hawkins gang living outside of their hometown, the possibility of Jim Hopper (David Harbour) still being alive, and bring back the Upside Down in a way that isn’t too repetitive. Not to mention the many puberty-driven ups and downs the crew is growing through, all while dealing with some pretty serious trauma.

Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter if it is eight episodes or 18, we will all be binging the series start to finish the day it comes out.
