But you won’t be limited to just 2 seasons as it’s been announced that a 3rd season is already in the making. Netflix hasn’t officially announced the new season yet, but it has been confirmed by The Duffer Brothers in various interviews and in all likelihood there will be a season 4 as well. And if producer Shawn Levy gets what he wants, there will be a fifth one too.
