Netflix’s Stranger Things is everything a show could wish for. From brave kids on bicycles rushing to save the world to inter-dimensional travel and dreadful monsters, the show has garnered a cult-like following. With the cast and the crew sharing umpteen updates about the upcoming season and producer Shawn levy talking about how the ending was in near sight and the season is “coming soon”, fans are eagerly waiting to witness the magic yet again.
In a recently released teaser on their official Twitter page, Stranger Things has revealed that season 4 will arrive in 2022. Although they have not released the exact date, fans are pretty excited and have already started bingeing on the previous three seasons.
The teaser contains a flurry of images. It starts off with certain scenes from previous seasons before including ones from the upcoming season. Eleven can be seen withheld by men clad in black suits, Jim Hopper is seen with a flamethrower, the Hawkins gang is seen venturing into the unknown holding flashlights and cycling through the darkness.
Season 4, which is going to be one of the darkest seasons according to stars Finn Wolfhard and Sadie Sink, seems pretty intense and scary.
Even the tweet itself seems ominous as it is written in upside-down text that reads “see y’all in the upside down” which indicates that the majority of the action will take place there.
As the rest of the crew have hinted at times, this season will not be confined to Hawkins, Indiana, and shall explore other locations, including a Russian camp where Hopper is currently stranded.
In June, Stranger Things had already unveiled four new characters on their Instagram for season 4 that includes cheerleader Chrissy, guidance counsellor Ms Kelly, a basketball player named Patrick and Vickie, a band aficionado.
The first episode is set to be named the Hellfire Club, drawing inspiration from the name of a supervillain gang in X-Men comics. Given how geeky the creators, Matt and Ross Duffer are, it should not come as a surprise if the episode is filled with such references.
Season 3 of Stranger Things had arrived on Netflix in July 2019 and we think that season 4 will probably stream on Netflix by July 2022. Until then, let us bask in the ‘80s nostalgia, pure adventure and horror that the first three seasons have in store for us in abundance.
