<���Stranger Things��� Season Four: Trailers, Cast, Release Date, Fan Theories And Everything We Know So Far>

After almost two years away, Stranger Things finally came back into our lives. In October 2019, Eleven and the gang made their long awaited return to Hawkins for season three of Netflix’s sci-fi smash hit. It was well worth the wait.

If, like us, you binged the entirety of the latest season a long time ago, you’ll be scouting around for anything you can find out about future episodes of the show.

Thankfully, a fourth season of the sci-fi smash is soon on the way – here’s everything we know about it so far.

Latest update:

When will Stranger Things season four be released on Netflix?

The show’s fourth season has been confirmed to release in 2022. There’s currently no specific release date beyond that for the next season but given that there was a 20-month gap between season two and three, we may not be returning to Hawkins for a while (and the teaser clip – see above – means we may not even see Hawkins again).

Producer Shawn Levy recently said season 4 would be released “soon enough” and teased that a specific date would be announced “quite soon”.

Of the ongoing delays, he told Variety: “The delay is due in large measure to COVID and the pace at which we have to work to do so safely, but it also happens to be the season that we chose to go much bigger. It’s the scale of this season and the multi-settings of Season 4.”

Is there a Stranger Things season four trailer yet?

There is indeed! A new trailer was released (August 6) which shows glimpses of season four, alongside footage from the first three seasons. The new shots are brief, but there’s a mysterious clock, Eleven rocking a new hairstyle while being held back by suited blokes, and a shaved Jim Hopper sporting a flamethrower (presumably in Russia, if it picks up directly after events in season three).

An earlier trailer shared in May teases Eleven’s storyline for the upcoming season. In it, we watch a series of clips of children being tested in Dr Brenner’s lab. He was the manipulative director of a research lab who forced Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven to participate in his mind power experiments during season one. Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) appeared to be killed by the Demogorgon, but an orderly told Eleven and Kali (Linnea Berthelsen) in season two that he is still alive.

The footage from this trailer is almost certainly a flashback or dream sequence, as the end frame pans to Eleven’s face, while Brenner asks: “Eleven, are you listening?” You can watch it in full below.

In an earlier teaser from last year, it was revealed that a certain key character is not quite as dead as we thought they were…

Watch that trailer below too.

Wolfhard told >NME in March 2020 that he was surprised to discover that the first trailer for season four revealed that Hopper was still alive.

“I think that was planned, because there’s only so much time that you have before people start to find out that David Harbour is back on set and start talking about it. I think Netflix just kind of nipped that in the bud very early,” he said.

“I didn’t even know that [the trailer] was coming out until I posted it on Instagram! So I was excited. I knew Hopper was alive, I just didn’t know that trailer was coming out. So now I’m just really excited for everybody to see it.”

A further trailer was shared on November 6, showing Eleven’s new life in California. Oridinary school-life soon changes then when the visuals flip to a sudden barrage of gunshots, car chases, military action and a desert-set explosion.

What locations will we visit in season four? 

A new location that will feature in Stranger Things season four has been revealed during Netflix’s livestream TUDUM event (September 25). In a new teaser premiered on the preview showcase, it was revealed that a house dubbed Creel House will be a “super important location” in the new episodes.

The show’s creators Matt and Ross Duffer, plus stars Gaten Matarazzo (who plays Dustin) and Joe Keery (who plays Steve) presented the new clip. “It’s very, very strange,” Matarazzo said of Creel House. The teaser shows a big, old-fashioned house with a family moving in, but strange things – like lights flickering and dead animal carcasses appearing on the lawn – soon start to happen.

After the children’s bodies are seen lifeless on the floor, the clip shifts to the show’s present-day, with Dustin, Steve, Max (Sadie Sink) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) breaking into the house. “Could you maybe clarify what sort of clues we’re supposed to be looking for here?” Steve asks as they explore the creepy building.

The teaser ends focused on a ticking grandfather clock, with the glass on its clock window cracking as the camera zooms in.

Do we know the titles of the episodes in season four? 

Yes! On November 6, Netflix shared a video that revealed all the titles of the episodes due to make up season four. They are, in order of the video, ‘The Hellfire Club’, ‘Vecna’s Curse’, ‘The Monster and the Superhero’, ‘Dear Billy’, ‘The Nina Project’, ‘The Dive’, ‘The Massacre at Hawkins Lab’, ‘Papa’ and ‘The Piggyback’. Watch the video reveal below now.

Are there any photos from the set?

JustJared shared a photo of Joe Keery, Gaten Matarazzo, Sadie Sink and Maya Hawke exiting a vintage video store on October 20, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia. Keery – who portrays Steve Harrington in the series – is seen sporting a name tag, which suggests he has a job at the video store.

Posters in the shop advertise Tom Hanks’ The Man with One Red Shoe and Michael J. Fox’s Teen Wolf, both of which debuted on home video in 1986. This means season four must be set in that year.

Who’s going to be in the cast for Stranger Things season four?

We can expect most of the main cast to return, so Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair), Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Sadie Sink (Max Mayfield), Maya Hawke (Robin) and Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers).

However season three saw some major characters leave the show. Dacre Montgomery, who plays Billy, won’t be returning as his character died sacrificing himself to save Hawkins. And we also saw the tragic death of Hawkins’ chief of police Hopper, although the new trailer (watch above) revealed that the scruffy cop is in fact alive and (not so) well.

In the teaser, he can be seen working on building a railway track somewhere in a very cold and frosty environment.

In a press release, Netflix said: “We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things four is now underway – and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper!

“Although 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…”

In a July 2020 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Caleb McLaughlin, who plays Lucas in the show, cast doubt over the future of the show, and its cast in particular.

“It’s all up to [the show’s creators] Duffers and the writers if they want to keep going,” the actor said. “Maybe they want to stop now. Maybe they don’t want to give anyone another season. Maybe they just want to leave you guys hanging like that.”

He continued: “I talk to people about this all the time, we can literally leave you guys hanging on the Upside Down. No one really knows what the Upside Down is, we just know what comes from it, like Demagorgons and like the Mind Flayer, but the Upside Down is an alternate dimension of our world.

“Our world is so big so there’s more than just Demadogs, and Demagorgons and Mind Flayers, so no one really knows.”
