The fourth season is coming out soon in two phases.


So far, judging by the trailer, this season is going to be about some of the main cast like the Byers, Eleven, and Hopper being away from Hawkins. While the rest who are still in the city are shown exploring the Creel House. There might be something about the Mind Flayer.

Matt Duffer said, “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 3. 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.”

Ross Duffer added to Matt’s statement saying, “we didn’t know how big the season was going to get, and we didn’t even realize until we were about halfway through, just in terms of how much story that we wanted to tell this season. Game of Thrones is one thing we’ve referenced, but also for us really what it’s about is revelations, in that we really wanted to start giving the audience some answers.”

Stranger Things Season 4 Release Date and Main Cast

The upcoming season of Stranger Things will be released in two volumes. The first half of the season will be premiering on May 27, 2022. And the second half of the season comes out on July 1, 2022.
