Following season three’s spectacular 77-minute climax, ‘The Battle of Starcourt,’ Stranger Things season 4 has some important questions to solve. Stranger Things Season 3 ended over two years ago, with the group of kids and adults from Hawkins, Indiana being sent in a million different directions.
Here’s everything we know about Stranger Things Season four so far, from its potential release date to which characters will come back and how long the show can last. Join us as we dress in our brightest ’80s apparel, crank up the electropop, and plunge into everything Hawkins, Indiana has to offer.
Stranger Things Season 4 Release Date?
Stranger Things Season 4 has yet to be given a release date by Netflix. The conclusion of the previous season, on the other hand, could reveal a lot about Season 4’s release date. As Eleven, Will, and the rest of the Byers family depart Hawkins, we are given an indication as to when the gang might reconnect. Will tells Eleven in a teary goodbye that he’ll be visiting for Thanksgiving and that she should return to Hawkins on Christmas day.
“We expect paid membership volume to re-accelerate in the second half of 2021 as we build into a very strong back half slate with the return of significant titles like Sex Education, The Witcher, La Casa de Papel (aka Money Heist), and You,” Netflix wrote in a letter to shareholders. Stranger Things season four is a huge enough product that we’re guessing it would have made the list if Netflix were certain, it was arriving soon enough.
The fourth Season of Stranger Things was formally announced in February 2020, with a teaser video and a statement from the show’s creators, The Duffer Brothers. Filming started in Lithuania and then moved to the United States. However, due to the coronavirus epidemic, work was halted two weeks into the filming. Stranger Things Season 4 resumed filming in Georgia in September 2020 after a six-month hiatus. As of March 2021, the show is still filming there.
Is there a trailer for Stranger Things Season 4 you ask? Why Yes there is!
Stranger Things’ social media accounts have also been publishing a series of intriguing posts that could indicate anything but could potentially signify nothing at all. Seasons 4 and 5 are reportedly being shot back-to-back, according to speculations. To be honest, it makes logical sense, even if we don’t believe it’s occurring.
We see the younger Dr. Brenner, or Papa (Matthew Modine), promising the kids “something special” on that day. We’re wondering if Modine and the other youngsters researched on at the Hawkins Lab will make an appearance in Stranger Things season 4 based on this footage.
Hopper “had to make a big sacrifice” to be revived, according to David Harbour, and though “Hopper as a character had to die […] but he will come back as a different human-being with a different viewpoint,” he will “come back as a different human-being with a different viewpoint.”
Who is returning?
Stranger Things Season 4 appears to be slated to bring back the whole core ensemble from Season 3. This includes the following:
- Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers
- David Harbour as Jim Hopper
- Finn Wolfhard as Mike Wheeler
- Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven
- Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin Henderson
- Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas Sinclair
- Noah Schnapp as Will Byers
- Sadie Sink as Max Mayfield
- Natalia Dyer as Nancy Wheeler
- Charlie Heaton as Jonathan Byers
- Joe Keery as Steve Harrington
- Maya Hawke as Robin Buckle
- Cara Buono as Karen Wheeler
- Priah Ferguson as Erica Sinclair (upped to series regular for Season 4)
- Brett Gelman as Murray Bauman (upped to series regular for Season 4)
There are numerous time travel hypotheses floating around the internet. So far, a clock has shown in every Stranger Things season 4 teasers. We also have no idea what that implies. Some people believe Eleven can manipulate space and time with her mind and talents. Others believe that yet another person with special abilities would be able to send individuals back and forth in time. I’m not sure what’s going to occur, but something is going on here!
