What is Stranger Things 4 about?

After only a few months of their season 3 debut, Netflix has released a new teaser for the fourth season of ‘Stranger Things’. The video starts with the series’ opening theme music before revealing the fourth season is coming soon. However, the footage reveals text that reads: “We’re not in Hawkins anymore.”

‘Stranger Things 3’ released in July this year and ended with Will and his family moving away from the small-town. The new footage suggests the next season will no longer take place in Hawkins, Indiana. Creators Matt and Ross Duffer have always stated they planed ‘Stranger Things’ to go on for four to five seasons, meaning this could be the series finale of the Netflix Original series. However, this won’t be the end for the Duffer Brothers and Netflix. The duo has signed a multi-year film and series overall deal with the service.

“The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with Stranger Things and we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love,” Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. “We can’t wait to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down.”

The series has received 31 Emmy Award nominations, including for Outstanding Drama Series, four Golden Globe Award nominations, and won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series in 2016.

Latest 'Stranger Things' News:

Stranger Things is coming to an end with season five after two-part season four.

Netflix has officially announced the highly-anticipated fourth season of Stranger Things will be split into two parts. In the same announcement, show creators Matt and Ross Duffer, said the show has been renewed for a fifth and final season. "With nine scripts, over 800 pages, almost two years of filming, thousands of visual effects shots, and a runtime nearly twice the length of any previous season, Stranger Things 4 was the most challenging season yet, but also the most rewarding one. Everyone involved is incredibly proud of the results, and we can’t wait to share it with you."

The brothers added the first of the two parts of the fourth season will arrive May 27 and the second part will arrive five weeks later on July 1. They confirmed this season illustrates the "beginning of the end." The official synopsis of the fourth season reads, “It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time — and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.”

Stranger Things has been a hit for Netflix, getting positive critiques from viewers and fans. So far, the show has been nominated for 31 Emmys and has won six in the creative arts categories. Stars Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp and Gaten Matarazzo are slated to return on May 27 for the first volume of season four. The release date for season five has not yet been revealed.

When does filming for 'Stranger Things 4' start?

Fans of the popular Netflix original series Stranger Things were excited when production started back in March. There were dozens of casting calls for photo doubles, stand-ins and background extras. While the cast could not say much about the series, they teased their excitement in an early table read.

Cast members Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Woolard, Priah Ferguson, and Caleb McLaughlin all appear in the VHS-cassette video clip of stars picking up scripts for the very first time.

However, production was shut down due to the Coronavirus. Five months later, Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer revealed the upcoming fourth season will not be the last season of the show.

“But the priority of the safety of the cast and crew, and that will dictate when we go back,” Ross told the Hollywood Reporter.

“We’ve had a lot more time to work on the scripts. For the first time, we have the scripts written and we’re able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments,” Matt added.

The Hollywood Reporter reports production for Stranger Things is expected to start on September 17th. The series, which filmed in Georgia for all its seasons, usually films at EUE Screen Gems.

What is Season 4 about?

In a recent interview, Duffer Brothers commented, ""We're excited to officially announce that production for Stranger Things 4 is now underway—and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper! Although it's not all good news for our 'American'; [Hopper] is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, Russia, where he will face dangers both human… and other. Meanwhile, back in the States, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything..."

'Stranger Things Releases New Trailer

‘Stranger Things’ is now casting and filming in Atlanta, Georgia and Netflix are excited to see the future of the sci-fi series.

A new teaser for Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ season 4 has dropped, revealing the return of Chief Hopper played by David Harbour following the end of the previous season. In the footage featured above, we see a snowy location in Russia where Hopper can be seen building a railroad. It looks like Hopper is alive, although living and working in Russia where it was teased experiments on the Upside-Down have been taking place. It is rumored they are creating soldiers similar to Eleven in the secret location.

Production on ‘Stranger Things 4’ is in full swing. This teaser is a signal that the market campaign for season 4 is coming soon. There is no release date currently for ‘Stranger Things’, but with Netflix pumping up the marketing for the series, we will soon see the streaming series coming soon to the series.

But, how does someone land a role in Stranger Things season 4?

According to IMDB, the series casting was done by Carmen Cuba, Tara Feldstein, and Chase Paris.

In a recent interview, Stranger Things casting director Carmen Cuba shared tips for aspiring actors. She says,  “I find that most kids actually have a singularity to them that isn’t actually represented in kid casting. I think that traditionally kids who look a particular way—cute’ and ‘all-American’ are typical words used to describe what I mean—are encouraged to pursue acting and modeling and it results in a somewhat homogeneous representation of what a kid looks like. We definitely did not want that. We all remembered our childhood selves and wanted to replicate the awkward transitional beauty we experienced.”

For a TV series this big, casting directors are contacting talent through talent agencies. If you are interested in a speaking role in the upcoming new season contact your talent agent for an audition. If you do not have an agent, check out our guide to landing an acting agent here.
