Stranger Things 4 brought back the Hawkins gang for another exciting new season. The popular show, which has garnered a global fan following throughout its run, was created by the Duffer Brothers. Opening up about the new season, the duo talked about the elements they chose to explore this time.
In a conversation with NME, the creators revealed that they had penned down the whole ‘mythology’ of the show right from season one, after a request from Netflix. Ever since then, the makers had tried to ‘peel back the layers’ of the same and incorporate it in the show’s different seasons. The brothers also talked about how they also wanted to delve deeper into Eleven’s past.
The filmmakers talked about how the fourth and fifth seasons of the show will be connected, and how the protagonists’ will have to go through ‘escalating’ situations. “Then it gets crazier and crazier and crazier – that’s typically the trajectory,” they said.
“It’s massive,” said the brothers about the new season. The creators also teased that the new season will be the ‘biggest’ one in the show’s run and will answer several questions that viewers might have had about the series’ lore. The whole cast is given opportunities to do many ‘great’ things and is faced off against a ‘great new villain’ as well, said the brothers.
The series stars Winona Ryder, Brett Gelman, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Charlie Heaton, Noah Schnapp, Eduardo Franco, Caleb McLaughlin, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, Natalia Dyer and Gaten Matarazzo.
The first volume of Stranger Things 4 is now streaming on Netflix. The second volume will start streaming on July 1.
