Stranger Things can be described as a mix of drama, mystery, and suspense. The TV show which was put together by Matt and Ross Duffer, also known as Duffer Brothers, is set in the 1980s. Its first season consisted of eight episodes; the second season consisted of nine, while the third season consisted of eight episodes. The show has been applauded for its immense suspense and the end of its third season left fans with several questions especially about Sheriff Hopper being dead or alive? This has heightened their hopes for a season 4 of Stranger Things to answer the question.
It is also worth knowing that the popular show has received several award nominations which include Primetime Emmy Award nominations and 4 Golden Globe award nominations. It was awarded Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a drama series at the Screen Actors Guild Award as well. Read on as we fill you in on everything you need to know about the possibility of a season 4 of Stranger Things.
Will There Be A Season 4 Of Stranger Things Series?
Considering how popular the show is, it would be very safe to say that Stranger Things will have a season 4. This fact has been confirmed by the producer Shawn Levy who said that the season 4 of Stranger Things is on its way and there might even be a season 5.
Fans of the show would be delighted to know that the show was not cancelled by Netflix and the season 4 of Stranger Things is on its way. It is expected that the release date of the 4th season will soon be revealed as the producer of the series starts working on the film’s production.
Though the 3rd season of Stranger Things was released in July, 2019, it is too early to expect the schedule for the next season. But from available information, fans may not see the 4th season till towards the end of 2020.
Facts About Season 4 of Stranger Things
1. Joyce Byers Will Be Leaving Hawkings
In the third season of Stranger Things, we saw the new mall called Starcourt become the center of attention for the town. We also saw Joyce Byers played by Winona Ryder relocating from Hawkings, at the end of the season. Given all that she’s been through in the town, it’s completely understandable why she would need to leave.
2. Season 4 of Stranger Things Might Not Revolve Around Hawkings
Apart from the speculations being made by fans, the producers of Strangers Things have not said much concerning its upcoming season. They only urge the audience to tighten their seat belts in expectation of a plot that doesn’t necessarily surround Hawkings. This is definitely a piece of exciting news as fans of the series have no clue what to expect about how things might play out in season 4 of Stranger Things.
3. Eleven Will Regain Her Powers In Season 4 Of Stranger Things
Moreso, the strange events which occurred in the third season leave Eleven, portrayed by the actress Millie Bobby Brown, and Max – played by Finn Wolfhard – in fear of what may be coming up in their town, Hawkings.
It is therefore expected that the focal point in season 4 of Stranger Things will be Eleven’s attempt to regain her telepathic powers to help her friends in Hawkings.
4. The Mystery of Hopper’s Disappearance Will Be Solved
A major question in the mind of many is whether Hopper is alive and it is suspected that the Russians’ prisoner in the after-credits scene of the third season might actually be Hopper who was thought to be dead after the explosion that occurred towards the end of season 3. Things become more complicated when his body was not found at the place the explosion occurred which suggests that he might still be alive.
5. Episode Count
There is no information so far on how many episodes the season 4 of Stranger Things will contain. It all boils down to the plot and content the producers have in mind. It is, however, expected that the number of episodes should fall within the range of 8 and 9 episodes, given the fact that the previous seasons were within that range.
