In the fourth season of Stranger Things, the monstrous Vecna is the source of terror and fright in the town of Hawkins, Indiana. However, the cursed nightmare-inducing creature is an actor named Jamie Campbell Bower, who had a great time scaring viewers with his deep baritone and sinister presence.
Stranger Things season four premiered the first seven episodes on May 27th, 2022, and will premiere the final two episodes on July 1st, 2022. Bower said about the final season, “I’m going to toe the party line here. It gets bigger. If you thought that it was as big as it could get, it’s not.”
According to Bower, the second volume will be an “explosive climax” and go “further, visually, story-wise, and emotionally for all the characters.”
Bower uses the word “explosive” with a lot of awareness. He says, “I do mean that. It goes a lot further, and we get to know more as well. We learn a lot more as an audience in these final two episodes, as well.”
He refuses to reveal much about the second volume except that the audience will “get to know more about all the characters.”
In the first volume, Vecna is revealed as Henry Creel, who uses his telekinetic powers to murder his family and frame his father for his crimes.
He is then taken in by Dr Martin Brenner and becomes Number One, the source of all experiments at Hawkins Lab and Eleven’s predecessor. He also helps Eleven escape before engaging in a vicious battle. Eleven defeats him and throws him into Upside Down, and he transforms into the vicious Vecna.
Created by the Duffer brothers, the fourth season of Stranger Things is gorier, scarier and darker than ever, with plenty of surprises. Taking place across three locations, namely California, Hawkins and Kamchatka, the season stars Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, Robert Englund, Jamie Campbell Bower, Matthew Modine, Brett Gelman, Raphael Luce etc.
