Stranger Things – What Is It All About?
Stranger Things, a science fiction horror drama, took the world by storm with its premiere in 2016. The drama is set in Hawkins, a fictional town, and is about a group of friends who get involved in strange happenings in the town while looking for their friend who disappeared overnight when they come across Eleven, a mysterious girl with no background who seems to have supernatural powers.
Joining the kids in their quest to unravel the mystery of Hawkins are Jim Hopper, chief of the police department, Joyce Byers, mother of Will, the boy who disappeared, Nancy Wheeler, Jonathan Byers, and Steve Harrington, who unintentionally gets roped in on the investigation.
Stranger Things – What To Expect From Season 4?
The last season’s last episode left the viewers in tears; with their hearts shattered, as Jim sacrificed himself (yes, no one is yet over his letter to Eleven), and the group of friends were separated.
The teasers and trailers for season 4 confirm what everyone already suspected – Jim is alive! But he is stuck in another country, and the supernatural threat to Hawkins has reached new heights as we are shown that the Upside Down still exists.
According to the synopsis released in February, this group of friends are struggling with the aftermath of the battle; that terrorized them last season, and having been separated from each other for the first time since everything started isn’t making surviving any easier. Especially not with them all in high school now. After all, everyone knows – high school is just another hell on earth.
Except for these people, the hell isn’t just an abstract. They have seen it through their own eyes, and the re-emergence of the monsters is bringing all the horrible memories back to the forefront; even more so for Eleven, who lost her father figure and her powers in one swoop.
So what all might we be in for? – Entertainment, duh! There are sure to be heart-wrenching sequences, and when Stranger Things does sad, it does it well.
Most importantly, though, hopefully, our favorite dad Steve will finally get his due this season. We have our priorities clear, yes.
When And Where To Watch It?
The first volume of season 4 will be premiering on May 27, Friday on Netflix.
