Stranger Things has been one of the most favourite Sci-fi seasons so far. Undoubtedly, Stranger Things has set the new standards for pulp fiction. All seasons of this amazing show have been a success, and now we all are waiting impatiently for the release of season 4.
Well, we’ve got some good news for all the Strangers. We’re well aware that who’s going to come back this season, thanks to the trailer. Therefore, we’ve gathered some more insights into the upcoming stranger things season 4.
According to Mike (Finn Wolfhard), season 4 will be the darkest of all seasons. The set photos revealed that they are no longer filming in Indiana. Similarly, there’s a whole new cast that we’ll get to see in this upcoming season. This makes us wonder what changes are in store for Eleven, Dustin, Will, and Steve, along with the remaining lot that survived last year’s mall massacre.
If you’re a Stranger like us, who’s eagerly waiting for the next season, you’ve come to the right place. Because we’ve gathered all the correct information and insights that you need.
To date, there has been no announcement regarding the release date of season 4. However, before the onset of the pandemic, most people believed that the 4th season would come by April 2021. Well, that was pre-covid predictions, and as the filming halted due to the lockdowns, there’s no chance for the season to release this year.
But looking at the release dates of past seasons, we can predict a pattern. Season 1 was launched on July 15, 2016, Season 2 on October 27, 2017 and Season 3 on July 4, 2019. A trend of two-year gap is clear and based on these trends, season 4 was expected to release during October 2020. However, now as the production has started again, we can hope to see season 4 during the spring or summer of 2022.
The ongoing pandemic did slow down the filming of the season, but a good thing happened. Due to the continuous lockdowns, the Duffer Brothers were able to complete the script beforehand. So, now all that’s left is the filming to end, which seems quite difficult at the moment. As per Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), they’re not aware that will happen next as they’re filming only on a day-to-day basis.
Stranger Things Season-4 Cast
As mentioned above, season 4 is going to see an influx of some new characters. Along with the regular and familiar faces of Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Max, and Will, you’ll also see the return of Steve, Nancy, Jonathan, Robin, and Joyce.
Similarly, you’ll see eight new cast members in this upcoming season, including the horror icon Robert Englund. Other new additions to the crew are Tom Wlaschida, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, and Nikola Djuricko.
The show’s plot is expected to pull some strings that will make the Byers family come back to Hawkins. The new season is going to spend some time out of Hawkins. You must expect to see a dark side of Hawkins that you haven’t seen before from the sneak peeks. Moreover, in a recent interview, the Duffer brothers hint that this season will open up a lot in terms of the frame. So, we’re wondering whether the show will return to where it started or not?
Nonetheless, how can we forget Eleven? This season will also speculate on the fact how Eleven lost her powers. We hope that it’ll also be revolving around how to get them back, and will Brenner help her?
Additionally, the entire season taking place in Upside Down will focus on the quest of how to free Hopper from the scary world.
