Netflix has renewed its incredibly popular series Weird stuff for a fourth season, and it now teases a world beyond the setting of Hawkins, Indiana, which fans have got to know very well.
The company made the announcement today on Twitter in a short teaser video. A Weird stuff not in Hawkins may sound strange, but after three seasons it is probably time to explore other parts of the world of the show. The last time Weird stuff tried to do this, but people were divided about it whether the episode fits within the series. There is currently no premiere, but Netflix used the extension confirmation to announce that co-makers Matt and Ross Duffer have signed a multi-year film and series agreement with Netflix.
“The Duffer Brothers have enchanted viewers around the world Weird stuff and we are excited to expand our relationship with them to bring their lively imagination to other film and series projects that our members will love, "said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix, in a press release." We can not wait to see what The Duffer Brothers have in store as they leave the world of The Upside Down. "
Stranger things renewal is a reminder of how popular the show has become for Netflix. Netflix claims that more than 40 million accounts has watched season 3 worldwide during the first four days after the release. That is a record number for the company. While Netflix orders more original series – a result of losing valuable licensed content to new competitors – with shows like Weird stuff is crucial for retaining and adding subscribers.
It is also the reason why Netflix wants to sign more general deals with makers. The company reportedly spent about $ 1 billion on deals for TV show runners, including Gray & # 39; s anatomys Shonda Rhimes ($ 150 million), Game of Thrones & # 39; David Benioff and D.B. Weiss ($ 250 million), and The politician & # 39;s Ryan Murphy ($ 300 million). While the Duffer brothers continue to make content for Netflix, hopefully fans of it will remain Weird stuff involved in the service and renewing their subscriptions.
