The American science fiction drama horror series Stranger Things will be back for a fourth season. The series had its last stint with its third season in July 2019. Stranger Things is one of the most popular Netflix series of all time.
The series first came out on July 15, 2016, through the digital web streaming service Netflix. Set in the 1980s, the series revolves around the lives of a set of kids in a town called Hawkins. A set of experiments on humans is conducted in a secret facility in Hawkins, unknown to the local authorities. It’s conducted under the supervision of secret US governmental organizations. The series draws inspiration from many conspiracy theories about human experiments and secret organizations during the Cold War era.
The series opened up to critical and commercial acclaim. The first season had around 20 million views within the first 35 days of its release. Critics lauded the series from its making to cast performances and almost everything about it. The performances of the kids were lauded by all and given due appreciation.
A second season followed in 2017 and met with even better reviews and was rated 94% by Rotten Tomatoes. Viewership also increased significantly. The third season which followed in 2019, outperformed the rest. It smashed Netflix record by garnering over 40 million views within the first four days of its release. It made 60 million within the first month.
The manner in which the third season ended and the excellent reviews ensured a renewal. Season 4 may be one of the most awaited seasons from Netflix. Netflix released a teaser in which they told that ‘We are not in Hawkins anymore.’
This may have two meanings, maybe it continues to the upside-down dimension, or we may be moving on to Russia, as shown in the latest trailer. The trailer which came out overjoyed the fans when it showed Hopper. Hopper’s survival was hinted at the end of the third season and was confirmed in the trailer, which came out in February 2020.
The fourth season does not have a confirmed release date. But we may expect the season by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021. The filming had already begun in March. But, it was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. The shooting may resume only when the restrictions are lifted, and the spread is under control. So, it’s likely that we may see a delay more than usual for the release. But it has not affected the spirits of the fans. They are all the more excited, waiting for the new season. All certainly hope that the new season may continue the excellent run the series had so far. So, we expect the wait to be certainly worth it. And let’s hope that it surely will be.
