As we edge closer to the drop of season two of Stranger Things this October, we’re looking forward to being back in Hawkins, Ind., with Mike, Will, Dustin, Lucas, and of course, Eleven. But now we can be confident that the gang is here to stay as the Duffer brothers have confirmed that show is coming back for season three.

In an interview with Vulture, showrunner Ross Duffer told his brother Matt he doesn’t want to call the new season debuting on October 27 “season two,” but instead he wants it to feel like a movie sequel. “If you have a successful movie, number two is always a little bit bigger,” Ross explained. “We’re thinking it will be a four-season thing and then out.”

By the time that the series would be projected to end, the characters would be ready for college. While the brothers don’t have it all planned out yet, they are currently figuring out more plot twists to plague Hawkins and the kids.

“We just have to keep adjusting the story,” Matt said. “Though I don’t know if we can justify something bad happening to them once a year.”

Now that we’re confident that we’ll be seeing the gang grow up to fight the evils of the upside down, we’re even more excited to see what happens in this Halloween release.
