It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for: After a series of cryptic posts on social media this past weekend, along with the series changing their profile picture on all accounts, Netflix has just officially announced Stranger Things's fourth season.

As the show's third season, which premiered on July 4, was a major hit with fans, the renewal was definitely a no-brainer for Netflix. And along with the announcement came a cryptic teaser, concluding with the text: “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.”

Fans have been speculating that the new season could be about time travel, and with the clock noises in the teaser above, we’re starting to believe it. Yesterday, the show’s social pages changed so that their photos now show what looks to be a clock, seemingly upside down. As if that wasn’t enough to drive fans wild with anticipation, their account also tweeted out two emojis of a clock and an upside-down smiley face.

While we don’t have a release date for the fourth season yet, at least we know that it’s officially in the works. And that’s not all: According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s creators, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, just signed a multi-year deal with Netflix which is reportedly worth nine figures.

We might not be in Hawkins anymore, but we’re so excited for what’s next.
