It’s been a long two years since we’ve seen Eleven and the gang in “Stranger Things,” but season four is finally heading our way. Today, the release date was finally announced (during the TUDUM event), but that’s not all, we’ve also got a new teaser trailer, that takes us out of Hawkings and to a new location, the Creel House, an old Victorian home filled with mysteries.
The cast and writing team have stated that Season 4 is going to take the show’s story out of its smalltown home, opening things up for a bigger, more ambitious scope, that includes Russia where David Harbour is being held, a prisoner with the group believing that he’s dead, having sacrificed himself.
“I mean, it’s bigger, that’s the first thing. In scope, in scale, even in the idea that we’re not in Hawkins anymore. We, locale-wise, we’re bigger. We’re introducing new stuff, but we’re also tightening and wrapping up in a certain direction to make it have a clear, clean specific, and definite ending at some point, which I can’t really talk about.” Star David Harbour told Collider.
Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, and Joe Keery all return for the new season whose exact premiere date should be announced very soon. There are several new cast members including Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street) has joined along with Jamie Campbell (Sweeny Todd), Eduardo Franco (Booksmart), Joseph Quinn (Catherine the Great), Tom Wlaschiha (“Game of Thrones”), Sherman Augustus (“Into the Badlands”), Nikola Djuricko (Genius), and Mason Dye (“Bosch”). “Stranger Things” was created by The Duffer Brothers.
Sadly, we will have to wait just a bit longer to see season 4 of “Stranger Things.” It won’t return to Netflix until 2022.
