A trailer for season four of Stranger Things has just been released.
It has been almost 3 years since the show first graced our television screens. Now, Hawkins is beckoning viewers back to town for a fourth season.
The fourth season of Stranger Things will air in two parts: Volume 1 will be released May 27 and Volume 2 is set to air on July 1.
The following cast will be returning to our tvs come next month:
Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Will (Noah Schnapp), Max (Sadie Sink), Steve (Joe Keery), Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), Robin (Maya Hawke) and Joyce (Winona Ryder)
The Netflix synopsis says,”It’s not all good news for our ‘American’; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human… and other.”
“Meanwhile, back in the States, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long-buried, something that connects everything.”
Ross and Matt Duffer hinted that season four is ‘going to open up a little bit… not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins.’
Due to the scope of the season being much larger, creators have referred to season four as the ‘Game of Thrones season.’
Matt said this to Dateline:
‘We kind of jokingly call it our Game of Thrones season because it’s so spread out, so I think that’s what’s unique or most unique about the season.
‘Joyce and Byers family to have left at the end of season three. They are in California – we’ve always wanted to have that like E.T.-esque suburb aesthetic, which we finally got to do this year in the desert; and then we have Hopper in Russia; and then of course we have a group remaining in Hawkins.
‘So we have these three storylines, are all connected and kind of interwoven together, but it’s just very different tones.’
According to Matt Duffer, there will be no short episodes this season.
’I don’t think we have an episode clocking in under an hour – even in season one there were episodes that were like 35 minutes. You kind of forget that.
‘This season, they’re very long, so I think it’s almost double the length of any season. So that’s one reason it’s taken so long. It does have this sort of epic quality to it. It’s a different feel, for sure.’
Stranger Things season for is set to premiere May 27 starting with Volume 1, then Volume 2 on July 1.
