Stranger Things has been one of Netflix’s hottest property for quite a few years. They have pushed envelopes since their inception and Stanger things was also a risky step. Nobody thought or would think on paper that the series about few pre-teens searching for something beyond their beliefs, working with them or against them would really work. But it did and became a massive critical and commercial success. One of the most heart breaking things that happened in season 3 was the death of Chief Hopper (David Harbour). But nobody believed that he was dead. See this show though scary and creepy is nothing close to The 10 or Game Of Thrones. They don’t kill characters just like that. The character whose death started everything also proved to be alive. So the fact that Hopper a fan favourite would die seemed a little fishy to be honest and to everyone’s happiness it was.
A new teaser has revealed Hopper to be alive but not well in Russia doing everything he can to protect humanity but honestly his daughter Eleven. He is investigating in Russia about the country’s experiments with the realm of the Upside-Down, and their attempts to create their own psychic soldiers the way Eleven was conceived to be. As the series is gearing towards a close it is coming back sort of a full circle and also heading towards an epic conclusion.
The work on the season has begun and considering how serious Netflix is about online promotions, a photo of Mike, Will, Dustin and Eleven aka the whole crew has been tweeted out and fans have gone in a frenzy thinking if it meant something.
Reportedly the season will have 9 episodes one more than the previous seasons but equal to season 2.
David Harbour when asked said “So [creators Matt and Ross Duffer] told me the arc of the season, and then I think we got Episode Eight like a couple months before we shot it,” Harbour admitted. “And I remember reading that episode, and they hadn’t told me this whole thing about this Russian facility at the end and how that was gonna be the sort of teaser and like ‘The American’ and the Demogorgon. They hadn’t told me about any of that, actually, and I just read it in the script and I thought it was amazing… And I really thought I was ‘The American,’ and then I haven’t heard a lot from them,” the actor confessed. “So I really don’t know if I am. But I thought I was, but it was never discussed. I didn’t ask [The Duffers], cause I felt confident I was — and now I’m not so confident.”
