Production for the latest season of hit sci-fi drama Stranger things was among those interrupted because of the pandemic. Hence, fans are thrilled to hear that season 4 finally resumed filming this month. While most plot details are still being kept under wraps, fans can pick up clues from this newly-revealed information.
Much earlier, in November 2019, writers revealed the title of series four’s first episode in their official Twitter account. The image showed a paper indicating that the title of the first episode will be “Chapter One: The Hellfire Club!”
The title refers to “Stranger Things” day, an event that takes place yearly on the anniversary of Will Byers’ disappearance. The post’s caption which reads, “looking for new members… are you in?” leave little to no clue on what the episode will be about.
Last October 12, the writers teased fans once again as they revealed titles of the second and third episodes. In a curious tweet, a fan asked if they can share the name for the upcoming installment’s second episode. Interestingly, the writers willingly responded, dropping “Tick Tok Mr. Clock” as its official title.
The same question for the third episode answered by the writers revealed “You Snooze You Lose” as title three.
What can we expect from Stranger Things season 4?
Stranger Things season 3 concluded with Will (Noah Schnapp), Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), and Joyce (Winona Ryder) leaving Hawkins behind. Meanwhile, Hopper (David Harbour) who is believed to be dead, appears to be held captive in a Russian prison. Fans then highly expect season 4 to focus on Hopper’s rescue. However, it might take a while for others before they realize that he’s actually alive and in danger.
The same cast returns for the fourth season with fresh faces arriving to play new characters added to the plot.
The Duffer brothers also confirmed that season 4 would extend beyond Hawkins, Indiana. Its renewal teaser video on the show’s official YouTube page ends with a cryptic phrase, “We’re Not in Hawkins Anymore.”
A Netflix synopsis of the season reads: “It’s not all good news for our ‘American’; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, 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.”
