Stranger Things Season 4 Teaser Hints At New Setting

We're not in Hawkins Anymore.


Time to head back to the Upside Down, as fans are getting their first info on Stranger Things Season 4. A new teaser trailer has been released for the hit Netflix series, and it doesn't give a release date or any real information, but it's pretty exciting that we know the next season is eventually coming.

The teaser starts with the iconic theme music and the show's logo. A large "4" appears behind it, before the image breaks up. The logo then appears in a spooky wood, with vines climbing up it, and some creepy sounds on the soundtrack. Then a bell tolls ominously and the words "we're not in Hawkins anymore" appear.

Now Playing: Stranger Things Season 4 Theories!

Stranger Things Season 3 was released in July this year, and ended with the gang splitting up, as Will and his family moving away. The teaser suggests that the next season won't all take place in Hawkins, the town that has been the setting for the past three seasons. Although creators Matt and Ross Duffer have previously spoken about their plans for further seasons of the show, this is the first official confirmation that Season 4 is happening.

Netflix also announced that the Duffer brothers have signed a multi-year film and series deal with the streaming giant. In a statement, Netflix boss Ted Sarandos said: "We're thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love. We can't wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down."
