It was over three years since our last check-in with the children (who are now fully high school teens at this point) from Hawkins, Indiana-and Strange things‘ fourth season won’t arrive on Netflix until 2022. But we now have a new trailer for the next installment of the nostalgic sci-fi horror sensation thanks to Netflix’s Tudum event, and that gives us a lot more to gnaw on than this little shot of a teaser we returned in August.
We already knew Hopper, who notoriously made not die in season three– will somehow escape Russia and return home a changed man. And we had a furtive suspicion that the Byers family, plus Eleven, too would not have left Hawkins for a long time. But this is the Creel House. A place that doesn’t seem to have a happy history. Is this Hawkins? How does this relate to everything else?
Created by the Duffer brothers, who have previously stated that it won’t be their last season–Strange things season four will bring back the familiar ensemble cast of Winona Ryder, Black Widow star David Harbor, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard (coming soon in Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink (who had a fantastic turn in Netflix’s slasher trilogy Fear street), Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, Brett Gelman and Cara Buono, with new faces to include Robert “Freddy Krueger” Englund, Jamie Campbell Bower, Eduardo Franco, Joseph Quinn, Tom Wlaschiha, Nikolaj Djuricko, Mason Dye, Sherman Augustus and Amybeth McNulty, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen and Grace Van Dien. That’s a lot of cast members, but if ever a series could handle a huge set … this is it.
Strange things season four arrives in 2022 on Netflix. What do you think of the trailer? Do you think the creators have enough work to do for (at least) one more season?
