Netflix has released teaser images for the fourth season of the American retro fantasy horror film Stranger Things for its ardent fans around the world as it prepares to premiere on May 27 this year.
The fourth season will be released in two parts, the second of which will be available on July 1, 2022.
The new season picks up six months after the Battle of Starcourt, which tormented and decimated the tranquil village of Hawkins in Roane County, Indiana.
The nerdy friends are separated for the first time as a result of the aftermath, and negotiating the complications of high school hasn’t made matters any simpler. A new and terrifying supernatural menace emerges at this most vulnerable time, posing a macabre mystery that, if answered, could ultimately put an end to the Upside Down’s horrors.
Fans of the series will have a lot to look forward to when it comes to Netflix, according to the Duffer Brothers, noting they’ll be thrilled since their online theories are “startlingly” accurate, though he didn’t reveal which ones.
“I think they’ll be happy when they see it. It’s very, very long, which is why it’s taking us a very long time,” Ross Duffer said. He said he’s “constantly impressed with how sharp the fans are, and how quickly they’re able to put something together with very, very little information.”
Since its release in 2016, the global phenomenon Stranger Things has garnered over 65 award wins and 175 award nominations, including those from the Emmys, Golden Globes, Grammys, SAG, DGA, PGA, WGA, BAFTA, a Peabody Award, AFI Program of the Year, the People’s Choice Awards, MTV Movie & TV Awards, Teen Choice Awards, and many others.
The three-time Emmy Award Nominee for Best Drama is one of Netflix’s most-watched titles, with Season 3 amassing 582 million view hours ranking as the 2nd Most Popular English-language series in the Netflix Top 10.
