They may’ve conquered the Demogorgon, but their experiences are far from over. Stranger Things season 4 is on the horizon and although Netflix released a teaser trailer, lots of subscribers are wondering what challenges are left for Mike, Eleven, and Hopper.
What is next for those characters from Hawkins? lots of “frightening” adventures are not yet researched in Stranger Things. Here’s what we know about season 4 of the Netflix original.
Stranger Things Season 4 Release Date
— stranger writers (@strangerwriters) June 18, 2020
The Stranger Things season 4 release date has not been shown yet. Netflix tends to angle its release date across public holidays like Halloween for year two, or the 4th of July for season 3 — based on the time of year inside Stranger Things.
In the event the normal season 4 may have been ready for ancient 2021. indicates that filming would have likely ended in August before post-production was due to start.
But in reality, although the script was finished some time back, production started in March 2020 and was fast at a standstill due to the coronavirus. Now, as of October 2020, filming has finally resumed. Netflix confirmed that on Twitter:

So a Spring season will probably be the best-case scenario — even more so if current plot threads wind up leading the show’s narrative to the Chernobyl disaster, which occurred April 26, 1986, that isn’t long after the 1985 setting of Season 3. (Yes, this theory is from Reddit, but it’s pretty legit, okay?)
Discussing with Vogue, Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler) stated that, in terms of Stranger Things season 4,” while I can’t say a whole lot, except that it is going to be a while until it comes out, it will certainly be worthwhile. It’s going to become big.”
However, while season 4 won’t be the final one, the Stranger Matters ending is projected. “Season 4 won’t be the ending,” Ross Duffer told THR, “We all know what the end is, and we all know when it is.” Duffer also went on to explain how the pandemic has given the team additional time to map out the show’s conclusion and complete the script. However, in other words, Stranger Things season 5 is nearly definitely happening.
Of course, we’ll want Season 4 to prevent filming, and it seems to still be happening if this film of Peter Ballard (played with Jamie Campbell Bower) from Instagram is anything to go by:

‘Stranger Things’ cast member said this will be the scariest season yet
There was the Mind Flayer and the Demogorgon. Due to Eleven, however, characters such as Mike, Will, and Lucas enjoyed the portion of the school experience like ordinary kids. Another member of the AV Club was Gaten Matarazzo’s character, Dustin Henderson, that seemed in the first three seasons of the Netflix original.
When it comes to future episodes of Stranger Things, this actor contributes to portraying his adorable character. Matarazzo could not share much, but he summed them up with a single phrase: “yikes.”
“I think most would probably say it is the funniest [season] out of the past three, which I love because it is very fun to film,” the actor said.
Stranger Things season 4 plot
About “The American” the Russians talked of being locked in one of their foundation’s chambers (among which also has a Demogorgon), many speculated that this individual was Dr. Martin Brenner. But the yield of Hopper makes us believe otherwise.
The show will likely have to utilize some plot device to pull the Byers family out of their new home, back to Hawkins.
Even though the new season will likely spend some time there or elsewhere — that season 4 is”likely to start up a little bit. . .not necessarily concerning scale, when it comes to special effects, but open in terms of letting plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins.”
This makes us doubt the series would end with no return to where it began.
As for other storylines, in a meeting with Teen Vogue, Sadie Sink stated her personality Max will probably spend some time concealing the trauma of losing her brother Billy: “I think that it makes sense for her since that’s sort of as awakened as their connection was… [Billy’s death] still really impacts the dynamic in her family. But in an authentic Max manner, she’s not likely to let anyone see how she’s feeling at some points. You see her only pretending that everything is fine when actually, everything’s changed because of her. She’s in a completely different psychological headspace.”
The last large of unresolved business is the way Eleven has lost her abilities, and will probably spend some time trying to regain them. Will Brenner be critical to this as well?
There’s even speculation of an entire season happening in The Upside Down, or at least focusing on a quest to free Hopper from the terrifying universe.
Lastly, let us read in the name of the initial installment of Stranger Things season 4:

This script that you see above reveals that the new season starts with some attention being paid to something called The Hellfire Club. There are two possible meanings. Understanding that Stranger Things enjoys nostalgia, I am leaning towards the suspect the children have become larger X-Men fans, as The Hellfire Club is a villainous faction introduced in the comics in the 1980s.
The broader definition of a Hellfire Club brings our point of view to exclusive nightclubs for members of high society, found in 18th century Britain and Ireland.
A crazy fan notion, claims that Eleven might be Hopper’s daughter. This is pure speculation and sometimes sounds like they’re stretching items, so don’t bet on it, however.
