Netflix has, somewhat unsurprisingly, renewed the global hit series Stranger Things for a fourth season – and has also signed series creators The Duffer Brothers to a multi-year film and series overall deal.
“The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with Stranger Things and we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix. “We can’t wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix. Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright, and Matt Thunell took a huge chance on us and our show – and forever changed our lives. From our first pitch meeting to the release of Stranger Things 3, the entire team at Netflix has been nothing short of sensational, providing us with the kind of support, guidance, and creative freedom we always dreamed about. We can’t wait to tell many more stories together – beginning, of course, with a return trip to Hawkins.”
Stranger Things has garnered over 50 awards nominations, including Emmys, the Golden Globes, the Grammys, SAG, DGA, WGA, BAFTA, the Art Directors Guild and the People’s Choice Awards, among many others. The show has also made household names out of several of its cast, with many going on to star in major Hollywood productions such as Finn Wolfhard (IT, Ghostbusters 2020), David Harbour (Hellboy, Black Widow) and Millie Bobby Brown (Godzilla: King of Monsters).
