We’ve been waiting for season four of Stranger Things for quite a while.
Thanks to the pandemic, the much-awaited season 4 has been delayed for months and months. We’ve spent much of that time speculating about what the fourth season will entail. The third season left a lot up in the air, with Chief Hopper apparently perishing to save Hawkins, Eleven joining Will and Joyce, and moving out of state, puberty really threatening wreak havoc on the show’s continuity.
We know that Hopper survived and is in some Russian gulag that may or may not have Demogorgon of their own and that the show added some new cast members. But fans are waiting for answers to plenty of other questions. Will the new season take place in Russia? In England? Will we get Hopper’s backstory? Will we get more of Eleven’s backstory?
Today I have good news and bad news. The good news is we’ve got another teaser to speculate about, complete with an ominous grandfather clock, and the bad news is we’ll have to wait even longer to get answers.
The teaser doesn’t have much to show that we haven’t already seen. In fact, much of it is made up of clips from the first three seasons of the show. The biggest bombshell that it drops – aside from how much older the kids look (check out Lucas’s Kid ‘n Play hair!) – is that season 4 won’t land until 2022.
