Season 2 of Stranger Things hasn’t even aired yet, but already Netflix is giving fans even more reason to celebrate.
In an interview with Vulture, the creators of the ’80s-set horror series revealed that Stranger Things has already been renewed for a third season, with a fourth season a likely possibility. That’s right, this means more monsters, more Winona Ryder (we hope), and more ’80s references are coming your way.
“We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out,” Ross Duffer said. “We just have to keep adjusting the story,” added Matt Duffer, Ross’ brother and writing partner. “Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”
The Duffer brothers have already promised a “terrifying” Season 2, which will also explore the psychological impact of Will Byer’s time in the Upside Down. The sophomore season will also see the stakes upped for Will and the rest of the gang: “It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demagorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived,” reads Netflix’s official description.
Millie Bobby Brown‘s Eleven will also star in Season 2 despite appearing to have lost her life in the fight against the Demagorgon. Barb, sadly, will not be returning so let’s all eat an Eggo and contemplate life.
Season 2 of Stranger Things hits Netflix Oct. 27. Are you excited?
