Stranger Things fans, gather round. It looks as though your fears can be put to rest - the series won't be stopping at season four after all. And that revelation comes right from the horse's mouth, the horse in this case being creators Ross and Matt Duffer.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Duffer brothers confirmed that this next instalment won't be the last - but they didn't say how long the story would continue beyond a fifth season.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Ross said: "Season four won't be the end. We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The coronavirus pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story."
When quizzed about where they're at with filming, Ross went on: "Everyone's excited to get back to work, but the priority is the safety of the cast and crew, and that will dictate when we go back."
Matt added: "We've had a lot more time to work on the scripts. For the first time, we have all the scripts written and we're able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments."

According to reports, the cast of the fan favourite series have been told season four production is 'tentatively' due to start back up again on 17 September.
In March, Netflix took the decision to suspend the production of shows and movies in the US and Canada 'due to government restrictions and health/safety precautions'.
When filming does recommence it definitely sounds like it'll be worth the wait - Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington in the show, claimed the fourth instalment is much more sinister than any that have come before.
Speaking to Total Film, the 28-year-old said fans are in for a treat when it eventually hits screens.
The actor said: "I think that this year - and I know I say this every single year - but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark."
He added: "Oh man, it's pretty amazing - the Duffer brothers have really done it again."
