The world has indeed turned upside down due to the COVID-19 pandemic but, wait for it. The real Upside down is yet to come. Once again, we get to witness the events in Hawkins and walk with the kids in their investigation and discoveries. This science fiction-horror Netflix original series is considered one of the bests and remained favorite for many. Stranger Things Season 4 is on cards and here is everything, right from the release date to the possible plot that you have to know.
Release Date of Stranger Things 4
On September 30, 2019, Netflix made an official announcement regarding the show’s next installment, Season 4. The show is created by Duffer Brothers.
The official release date for stranger things season 4 has not yet been announced. But, we can predict based on a certain pattern by observing the previous seasons. The first season released on July 15, 2016. Then, the second season came out on October 27, 2017. The third season released on July 4, 2019. If this pattern is scrutinized then Stranger Things 4 will come out in October.
However, will it come in 2020 or 2021? is still an unanswered question as the production work of every show is delayed. The show made it clear that the shooting has already begun and the script was done, but it has seen an unprecedented halt. Moreover, it was reported that the shooting was ahead of their schedule before the pandemic halt.
The official trailer was also released on February 14, 2020, titled ‘From Russia with love’.
The cast of Stranger Things 4
The lively and our favorite cast members will be back. We can expect no major changes in the main cast. However, few new characters can be anticipated as per the plot.
- Winona Ryder as Joyce
- Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven
- Finn Wolfhard as Mike
- Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin
- Noah Schnapp as Will
- Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas
- Sadie Sink as Max
- Joe Keery as Steve
- Natalia Dyer as Nancy
- Charlie Heaton as Jonathan
- Maya Hawke as Robin
- Priah Ferguson as Erica
- Cara Buono as Karen
- Brett Gelman as Murray Bauman
Above all, let’s talk about the new characters. Firstly, four new male characters were decided. Three teenager roles and one adult role. The teenage roles were characterized as ranging “from a metalhead to an entitled jock” to a character that sounds an awful lot like the twin of Fast Times at Ridgemont High stoner Jeff Spicoli. The adult character is presumably tied to the Russian storyline.
Secondly, Tom Wlaschiha is cast as a Russian malefactor. And, hold on to the news, David Harbour would return as Jim Hopper.
The plot of Stranger Things 4
We can never forget the finale episode of Season 3. Battle of Starcourt literally gave everyone goosebumps. The plot of Stranger Things 4 will pick up where it was left.
In the announcement teaser, we saw the line we are not in Hawkins anymore. It raises questions on whether we witness the Russian storyline more.
Though we heaved a euphoric sigh of relief as we confirmed that hopper is alive. But, is he really hopper or, someone else? In the last season, Eleven lost her powers. She was also bitten by the Demogorgon in the finale episode.
Is Mind Flayer controlling El? Is that the reason for her loss of powers? Where did the hop go? What are the Russians up to?
However, All these threads will be tied together as a story in the upcoming season. We can know reality only after watching it.
