This week, Netflix has finally positioned “Stranger Things” fans when we can watch the long-awaited fourth season of the series. Of course, we all understand that the coronavirus pandemic has shut down all film production around the world, however, the anxiety about seeing Hawkins’ gang is very great. To heat up the turbines, let’s go back to what we know so far about what’s to come.
There is still no specific date for the premiere of the new season, however, Netflix has announced that it will be definitively available for subscribers in 2022. However, considering what has been done in the past and recalling As this is a horror series, we can expect “Stranger Things” to debut in October of next year.
number of episodes
In previous years, fans have been presented with a figure eight story in each of the seasons. Apparently, however, next season will have nine chapters – one more than we’ve had so far. These rumors, not yet confirmed, are reinforced by Ausiello, editorial director of TV Line, who points out that this additional chapter could arise to tell the origin of one of the characters beloved by fans. Who can it be?
Still on the episodes, the showrunners of the series have yet to release the names of the chapters – in fact, little is known about those details. Despite this, the good news is that we already have confirmation of the name of the first episode: “Chapter One: The Hellfire Club” (“The Hellfire Club”). The origin of this name refers to one of the companies in the ‘X-Men’ franchise (a comic strip created in the 1960s and hugely popular in the 1980s, when ‘Stranger Things’ is set), which appears for the first time in the Black Phoenix saga (made into a movie in 2019, with Sophie Turner).
Hopper is not dead!
We’ve been a little wary of that since “Stranger Things” tried to convince us that Hopper (David Harbor) was dead, but it was in the first teaser released by Netflix that we got confirmation: Hopper is alive! At one point yet to be explained, the Sheriff of Hawkins was reportedly captured by soldiers from the Soviet Union and, confined, would likely be confronted with his past. Chances are, this extra chapter to tell the story of one of the characters is exactly about Hopper.
Much of the target audience for “Stranger Things” are teenagers, born after the 2000s, and they have no idea what it was like to live in a world where the Union of Socialist Republics existed. Soviet (USSR). To put it in context, the Soviet Union was a group of states in northeastern Europe that existed between the 1920s and 1990s, administered by the Communist Party. In 1985 Mikhail Gorbachev took over the leadership of the party. Then the USSR collapsed and dissolved – thus becoming several independent countries in Europe.
Recalling that ‘Stranger Things’ is set in the 1980s, the epoch of the series is concomitant with the end of the USSR, encompassing the end of the Cold War and the reflexes of the space race (led by the (Soviet Union and United States, which fought for interplanetary hegemony). So, probably in this fourth season, we’ll have a very political background, reaching not only Hopper, but possibly other characters as well, capable of even causing a split between some of them who are positioned against or in favor of. the dispute.
We want Robin!
One of the biggest hits of the third season was for sure the insertion of the character Robin (Maya Hawke). The audience liked her so much, that it’s quite possible that she will come back next year, maybe even gain more space in the series. Another one who should win more stages is Suzie (Gabriella Pizzolo), whose superintelligence should no longer be in remote mode.
So far, all we know about the new characters is the entry of Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) as Victor Creel, a mental hospital intern, with Jamie Campbell Bower (from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows of death “), which Peter Ballard, an employee of this hospital, will do; Eduardo Franco will enter as Argyle, who will befriend Jonathan; Joseph Quinn (from ‘Game of Thrones’) will play Eddie Munson, the leader of a new role-playing group in Hawkins; Mason Dye (from ‘Teen Wolf’) will play Jason Carver, the typical sportsman who dates the most popular girl in school; and Sherman Augustus (of ‘Westworld’) will play Lt. Col. Sullivan, a military man whose goal will be to rid Hawkins of whatever is going on.
end of series
It is true that we are already starting to have the feeling that ‘Stranger Things’ is going astray and inventing a little more history for itself. Perhaps this is why there are rumors that the series will likely end in the fifth season, bringing the inverted world to an end for good. Which doesn’t mean we can’t have a spin-off later …
