The filming of season 4, halted due to the Covid-19 crisis, resumed last October in Georgia, and the actors then traveled to New Mexico to shoot scenes before the holiday season. ‘year. The production claims that this setback has fleshed out the sequel to the hit Netflix series, which follows the thrilling adventures of a bunch of kids and their super-powered friend struggling with strange phenomena. “The Covid-19 positively impacted the shootings. For the first time, we had time to write the whole of season 4 before shooting it. And we even changed the plot. I assure you. The quality of the scripts is therefore really exceptional !!! ”, confided Shawn Levy, the producer. Season 4 is expected to have nine episodes and, while their pitch has not been officially released,
MANY OLDER BUT ALSO NEW CHARACTERS
It is already certain that Noah Schnapp (Will), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), and Sadie Sink (Max) will all be there, all as Winona Ryder as mother Joyce Byers. Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, and Joe Keery will be back too, along with Maya Hawke (Robin) and Cara Buono who plays Karen Wheeler. Brett Gelman (Murray) and Priah Ferguson (Erica) have been promoted to regular characters, so expect to see them more than in the previous season. On the other hand, it’s highly unlikely that Dacre Montgomery will be credited again, (spoiler alert) Billy the Lifeguard having been killed by the Mind Flayer during the Battle of Starcourt at the end of Season 3.
The Duffer Brothers, creators of Stranger Things, have themselves announced the return of Hopper, “although our ‘American’ will not have all good news; he is imprisoned in the jails located on the abandoned and snow-covered lands of Kamchatka, where he will have to face human and other dangers … ”. The new life in hostile land but also the past of the Sheriff of Hawkins should be explored throughout this season 4.
But not everything will revolve around him, and the original cast will receive a lot of visits … Among the actors who will arrive in the credits, there will be Robert Englund, the famous interpreter of the horrific Freddy Krueger. He will play a deranged and disturbing murderer, Victor Creel, detained in a psychiatric hospital for a crime committed in the 1950s …
Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd, Twilight) will play Peter Ballard, a caregiver working in the same mental hospital. Eduardo Franco (American Vandal) will be Argyle, a party-loving pizza delivery boy, and friend of Jonathan. Joseph Quinn will play Eddie Munson, a metalhead at the head of the Hellfire Club, the official D&D club at Hawkins High School, who will find himself at the epicenter of a terrifying mystery. In the role of Lieutenant-Colonel Sullivan, Sherman Augustus will play a character, probably a soldier, believing he can free the town of Hawkins from the nightmare in which it is plunged. Mason Dye (Teen Wolf) will play Jason Carver, a handsome, rich sportsman who dates the most popular girl in high school.
Serbian Nikola Ðuričko (Frozen Stiff) will be Yuri, a Russian smuggler known to love bad jokes, money, and peanut butter, finally, German actor Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones) will play a charming and intelligent prison guard, Dmitri, who will befriend an American prisoner by the name of… Jim Hopper.
WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE NEW PLOTS?
The mystery is still very thick. If we refer to the previous seasons, whose action took place in 1983, 1984, and 1985, season 4 should logically take place in 1986.
The titles of the first three episodes have been released, but leave a little clue, even to the most hardcore fans: Episode 1, ‘Chapter One: The Hellfire Club’; Episode 2, ‘Chapter Two: Tick Tock Mr. Clock’ and Episode 3 ‘Chapter Three: You Snooze You Lose’.
It is highly likely, however, that Season 4 will see the gang consisting of Eleven, Mike, and the others attempt to save Hopper. The new plots should also look at Eleven, and how she will try to regain her powers (spoiler memo: at the end of season 3 the girl with chronic epistaxis is no longer able to move objects or to spot people from a distance). Something that would be very practical for him to save Hopper …
But fans surely also remember that the small group of friends was separated at the end of season 3 with the move of Joyce Byers, with her youngest child Will and Eleven, whom she has decided to take under her wing since the disappearance. by Hopper. With Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Max, Nancy, Steve, Robin, or Erica still in Hawkins, season 4 should be part of a new dynamic. And if the Byers did not deliver their new address, they made an appointment with their friends at Christmas … Noah Schnapp (interpreter of Will Byers) had confided before the filming that the heroes would probably be separated at the beginning of the new season: “I know I could have a different script than everyone else’s, so we could shoot elsewhere,” he said.
Series co-creator Ross Duffer confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the series will open up to other geographic horizons: “I think the biggest change is going to be to open up a bit more. Not in terms of special effects or drama, but rather in building plots outside of Hawkins ”. Mike and Eleven’s romance will therefore be put to the test of distance.
WHEN WILL SEASON 4 GO LIVE?
In an Instagram live, actor David Harbor revealed that the new episodes would arrive in early 2021, but the delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic could see this date pushed back to spring, and even, for the most pessimistic projections, to the end of the year. As to whether this season 4 will be the last, a priori not, even if Netflix has not yet confirmed. Ross Duffer said, “Season four will not be the end. We know what the end is, and we know when it will come. [The pandemic] gave us time to look ahead, and figure out what would be best for the show ”.
