‘Stranger Things’ announced that they have finished filming season 4 and are ready to return to Netflix in the summer of 2022. If you do not know what ‘Stranger Things’ is, it is safe to say you must have been living under a rock for the past 5 years.
‘Stranger Things’ is the ever so popular Netflix series that has taken the country by storm ever since season one got released in July of 2016. This show takes place in Hawkins, Indiana, during the early 1980s. It focuses on a group of preteen boys who just happen to befriend a strange, bald headed, girl, with special powers, named “11”.
For the past three seasons this group of friends have found themselves battling crazy scientists, Russians, and most importantly, an unimaginable dark force.
People seem to love this show and are antsy for the release of the very long anticipated season 4. On September 19th, 2019, Netflix made the announcement of season 4, along with a teaser that had the caption, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.” After this, Netflix continued to release little one minute teasers on the upcoming season.
With the almost three year time gap from the release of season 3 and season 4, the Duffer brothers (creators of ‘Stranger Things’) needed to keep fans from being antsy.
If you missed any of these teasers or updates, here’s what to expect in the upcoming season:
Based on the newest trailer for season 4 we should expect to see Will’s recently moved family (including 11) in a new town, with 11 and Will attending a new school.
Some more exciting information had fans raving with a teaser released earlier this year. We find out that the supposedly diseased character “Hopper” is alive and possibly trapped at a Russian government base, who knows where.
Another thing to expect this season is new characters. According to Cnet.com 4 new characters will be joining the gang back in Hawkins. Vickie, “A cool, fast-talking, band nerd, who catches the eye of one of our beloved heroes”; Patrick, a basketballer from Hawkins whose life spirals “out of control”; new guidance counselor, Ms. Kelly; and Chrissy, the head cheerleader from Hawkins High, who has “a dark secret.”
There have been many more exciting things revealed about this new season of ‘Stranger Things’. So, if you haven’t already checked out the multiple teasers released by Netflix, and are an avid watcher of the beloved series, I would suggest doing so.
