Ross Duffer and Matt Duffer, creators of Stranger Things, always imagined that their supernatural horror series would last at least five seasons. Although they haven't confirmed that season five will be the last, Shawn Levy, executive producer of Stranger Things, has stated publicly that they have an endgame strategy.
The end is in sight for me. The end is in sight for the brothers. There is a plan. It will also be shared, although not as soon as we have a sense of when Season 4 will be out. This is what I can confirm. You are not making this up, and there is an endgame.
Collider was also informed by Levy that a Stranger Things spinoff series is possible once the original series ends.
It is clear that this show is a tentpole, and is arguably the most successful tentpole franchise in Netflix's history. While there were other shows that played important roles in their evolutions, Stranger Things was the most watched show on Netflix. It has 196 million households. It's unique on Netflix. It is clear that there is a strong interest in any offshoots, any extension or iteration of the franchise, characters and mythology. These conversations are not only not evolving, they also aren't non-existent.
Stranger Things season 4 is nearly over filming and a teaser trailer has been released. The teaser doesn't provide much information about the next season. It does provide a glimpse into the evolution of the series as well as how the main characters Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Dustin, Gaten Matarazzo, Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Steve, Nancy Dyer, Steve (Joey Keery), and Max (Sadie Sink), have grown.
Stranger Things season 4 is expected to debut in 2022. However, no date has been set.
