As for when a fourth season would come on Netflix, some have speculated (together with us!) a Christmas episode or Christmas season is subsequent.

Is season Four the final season of Stranger Issues?

Wanting past season Four for Stranger Issues is troublesome notably as we don’t know the way the story will wrap up in season Four but. Shawn Levy, nevertheless, did communicate just lately about the way forward for the present saying:

“I imply I’ll say we’ve got an excellent sense of stuff that occurs in season 4. Season 4 is certainly taking place. There’s very a lot the potential of a season past that one, that’s presently undecided. And what I’d simply say is a part of the chaos and enjoyable of this explicit present is that whereas the Duffers and the author’s room and we producers define the whole season, the Duffers actually use the writing course of to revisit, reassess and query all of their prior assumptions.

So despite the fact that we all the time begin off with an excellent sense of the main arcs of the season. We’re all the time prepared for shifts and surprises as a result of if the Duffers stumble into a special or stunning inspiration whereas they rewrite the script, we’re going to comply with that inspiration and throw out some concepts as a way to embrace some new ones which can be extra thrilling. And I’ve little question that season Three might be no exception.”

What do the Duffer Brothers should say?

However from what was stated it’s nonetheless unclear on whether or not or not a fifth season is going on. Even the Duffer Brothers are unsure about the place they stand on a fifth season. In an interview with Enews, the Brothers had the next to say:


“We don’t truly know. I feel, you already know, 4 to 5 seasons is probably going the place we’ll find yourself, however who is aware of? I imply, none of this official, and we all know the place we wish to go. We’re attempting to determine nonetheless how lengthy it’ll take to get there, so we’ll see.”


“It’s exhausting, like 4 appears quick, 5 appears lengthy. So I don’t know what to do.”

We do, nevertheless, have extra to look ahead to from The Duffer Brothers and certainly Shawn Levy who all have unique output offers with Netflix over the following few years.

What’s the episode depend and names for Stranger Issues season 4?

The fourth season can even be receiving eight episodes like the primary and third seasons.

Solely the second season obtained extra episodes, which aired 9 in whole.

On November seventh (which is Stranger Issues Day), the Stranger Writers Twitter account introduced the title of the primary episode and who’s writing it.

  • Episode 401 – “Chapter One: The Hellfire Membership” – Written by The Duffer Brothers

What can we count on from Stranger Issues season 4?

Season Three left us with lots to ponder for subsequent season. We are able to count on a number of the following to be revealed.

Who’s “The American?”

The obvious reply to this query is clearly Jim Hopper. We by no means noticed Hopper’s physique disintegrated by the outburst of energy from the Russian’s machine however we have been left to imagine the more severe. Within the last scene, we in the reduction of to the Russian base in Kamchatka the place the opposite machine was situated. Two guards revealed that an American was a prisoner inside the bottom.

The one logical conclusion is the American is Hopper and he will need to have been teleported between Hawkins and Kamchatka by the machines the Russians have been utilizing to power open the Upside Down. Alternatively, he could have been despatched into the Upside Down just for the Kamchatka Russians to seek out him thus capturing him.

As to how Hopper escapes his cell is anybody’s guess. However he’ll seemingly be capable of escape the ability itself by utilizing the machine to ship him again to Hawkins. If the machine can’t ship him again to Hawkins immediately then he could haven’t any selection however to enter the Upside Down and attempt to make his method residence from there.

Are the Byers and Eleven going to return to Hawkins?

After the tearful goodbye to their mates and Hawkins, the Byers and Eleven have moved away to pastures new. Earlier than leaving Mike and Eleven have made it clear they’ll be speaking to and visiting as typically as they will. Mike will go to the Byers place for Thanksgiving, and Eleven will ask Joyce if she will be able to keep at Mike’s for Christmas.

It’s our hope the following season might be primarily based at Christmas, which might give writers a straightforward purpose to jot down characters to be in Hawkins on the similar time. Regardless, characters corresponding to Eleven and Will are crucial to the story due to their connection to the Upside Down.

Jonathan’s return to Hawkins would coincide along with his relationship with Nancy Wheeler. As for Joyce, she’d seemingly tag alongside simply to verify Will and Eleven are secure.

How will the Mindflayer return?

If anybody thought the Mindflayer was destroyed is unfortunately mistaken. The creature seen all through the third season was a conduit utilized by the Mindflayer and never the Mindflayer itself.  With the connection between the Upside Down and our world shut, the conduit physique misplaced its “sign” to the Midnlfayer thus the physique was destroyed.

The Mindflayer is secure and sound within the Upside Down however is trapped for now. He’ll positively be returning with a vengeance and can seemingly look to enact his revenge in town of Hawkins after being thwarted twice.

As to how he returns might be very fascinating. The previous two events when he’s possessed people has not gone to plan. Arguably possessing one of many Russians can be a much better possibility than a young person from Hawkins.

Have the Russians tamed a Demogorgon?

The massive reveal on the finish of the fourth season was proven to be a Demogorgon had been captured by the Russians. At first, it seemed the Russians had discovered a Demodog till it stood on its hind legs revealing the true type of the creature.

The Russians plan to tear open a portal to the Upside Down in Kamchatka will need to have been a hit. Whereas the ability in Hawkins was shut down, the Kamchatkan base continues to be totally practical. Given time to good the analysis, the machine could now give the Russians entry to Upside Down as and once they please.

How they got here to seize a Demogorgon is unclear however maybe they have been capable of finding one of many spawns just like Dustin’s pet D’Artagan in season 2. This may give pause to purpose that the Demodogs are in reality the juvenile or pet stage of the Demogorgon.

Dustin’s connection to D’Artagan additionally offers us purpose to imagine that creatures from the Upside Down can type bonds, nevertheless small. So if the Russians raised this explicit Demogorgon from delivery/spawn, then possibly they have been capable of tame the monster. Or of least the Demogorgon likes to be fed frequently and the Russians can research the creature. Additionally, the Demogorgon has the flexibility to go out and in of the Upside Down, which leads us to marvel why it willingly would keep in a cage.

Extra experiments to seem?

Within the second season, we discovered that Eleven wasn’t the one experiment to flee the Division of Vitality. Eight was additionally capable of escape and he or she made it her mission to take down the individuals associated to the experiments. Like Eleven, Eight additionally exhibited powers of her personal. As an alternative of telekinetic talents like Eleven’s, Eight might forged illusions, turn out to be invisible by way of her illusions and in addition clairvoyance.

We didn’t see any additional experiments in season Three however director Shawn Levy closely hinted we might see extra sooner or later:

“I feel we’ve clearly implied there are different numbers, and I can’t think about that the world will solely ever know Eleven and Eight”

Whereas it definitely was the weakest story of season 2, if accomplished proper it might be nice to discover extra on the experiments by the DoE. With the DoE shut down at Hawkins it might be intriguing to see how they might introduce extra experiments. One or two might make wonderful protagonists, giving Eleven considered one of her hardest challenges but. Alternatively, they might be launched to assist fight the Upside Down.
