Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things‘ is just one of these shows that cast a spell on the audiences and fully hook them. It is a refreshing blend of 80s nostalgia, coupled with sci-fi tropes that leave a profound mark on the viewers. The show’s success is further demonstrated by its history of nominations, such as the 39 Primetime Emmy Awards (six wins) and four Golden Globe Awards. Considered nothing less than a stroke of genius from the Duffel Brothers, the show has spanned three seasons. If you are looking for details about season 4, we have got you covered!
When did Stranger Things season four get renewed and when will it release?
Following a few days worth of teasing leading up to September 30th, 2019 Netflix finally confirmed that Stranger Things is returning for a fourth season.
Also, Netflix has signed a multi-year deal with The Duffer Brothers. This deal is on top of the one Netflix already has Shawn Levy who’s a producer on the show.
The statement of season four came accompanied by a video that had the caption: “We’re not in Hawkins anymore”.
To get a release date, despite several rumors of the Netflix application showing an August 2021 release date, people still do not officially know given filming has yet to wrap (see below).
Our very best guess is that it will return in 2021 but probably won’t be until that latter half of the year. There are rumors that Netflix will debut the first look at season four at this season’s Super Bowl.
Who will return for Stranger Things 4?
It was pretty much always a given that the core A/V Club crew and their teenaged friends will be back, but based on a candy homemade video that Netflix shared with this cast’s first table read, it looks like just about everyone is returning for Season 4. Of the main cast, you can expect to see Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Noah Schnapp (Will), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Winona Ryder (Joyce), Joe Keery (Steve), Sadie Sink (Max), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan), along with Maya Hawke (Robin). Lucas’s younger sister Erica is also back and given more time to make scathing, sassy remarks, as Priah Ferguson has been upped to series regular, per Deadline. The same goes for everybody’s favorite conspiracy theorist Murray Bauman–Deadline reported Brett Gelman can be now signed on as a regular. Regrettably, his bromance with Alexei (RIP Alexei) is no more.
Last season tried to play with fans’ heartstrings when it did not seem clear whether or not David Harbour’s Hopper was indeed dead, but don’t you worry: It is confirmed that he’s returning. Monsters from the Upside Down have not gotten to him.
Stranger Things Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
Set in a fictional town called Hawkins, ‘Stranger Things’ kicks off with the disappearance of Will Byers, who is later discovered in an alternate dimension called the Upside Down. His friends chance upon a girl named, that has telepathic and psychokinetic abilities. She is the result of an experiment ran upon her mother by the Hawkins Laboratory scientists. The series chronicles the lives of a bunch of kids Will, Mike, Dustin, and Lucas — who, together with Eleven, are forced to embark upon reckless experiences to save either their town or their nearest and dearest.
In the third season, the children of Hawkins become convinced “almost-adults” who battle with new improvements in their emotional spectrum. There’s a brand new mall in town, which exponentially ups the glamor quotient. However, Hawkins is now tainted with all the contagious shadow of the Upside Down as yet another round of insanity and danger threatens the town. Eleven and her friends team up again to not only survive but also celebrate their friendship.
Season 4 will probably start somewhere away from Hawkins because Joyce, her sons, and Eleven, have changed base. Jonathan and Nancy’s relationship might further solidify to a long-term commitment, or will Steve input the picture again? The Russians’ effect on the portal’s presence is going to be clarified. There is also a chance of the occurrence of more gateways linked to other worlds. Hopper’s back story will also unfurl and we may have to know the importance of the boxes labeled”dad,” Vietnam,” and”New York,” that Eleven located in Hopper’s attic.
