Season 4 of Stranger Things has been announced in a 40 second clip released today. In it, we see the now-iconic logo in front of the number 4 as they flash between normal colors and a negative image. The background changes to the parallel dimension of the Upside Down as a clock ticks. We then get the text “We’re not in Hawkins anymore” as a church bell rings.
As far as speculation goes, there isn’t much to go off of from this short announcement clip. However, it’s obvious that the Upside Down will play a larger role in this season and may even be the main setting. The Upside Down has been mostly clouded in mystery since the show’s inception, but maybe this new season will give us answers. The other world has been speculated to be a “negative dimension” or dark reflection of this one. The flashes of the logo in negative could be hinting at this reveal at some point in the series.
The show, created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, is probably Netflix’s flagship original show, pulling in millions of viewers to binge it with each new season. Hopefully, this new season will live up to the standards that its three predecessors has set. Nothing is known about this new season as far as plot details beyond what has already been speculated, cast, or a release date as of now, but we can probably expect news soon.
Stranger Things stars Millie Bobby Brown (Godzilla: King of the Monsters) as Eleven, Finn Wolfhard (It: Chapter Two) as Mike Wheeler, Caleb McLaughlin (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit) as Lucas Sinclair, Gaten Matarazzo (The Blacklist) as Dustin Henderson, and Noah Schnapp (The Peanuts Movie) as Will Byers. Stranger Things was created by the Duffer Brothers and can be streamed on Netflix.
