Stranger Things season 4 is on its way and here is everything we know about it thus far.

To call Stranger Things a global phenomenon would be an understatement. The Netflix original series reinvigorated the pop-culture landscape when it premiered on the streaming service in 2016, becoming arguably its biggest original series and spawning various fan events, comic books, novels and so much more.

It’s been over two years since we have had new episodes of Stranger Things to enjoy as the third season premiered in the summer of 2019. However, the good news is that the show is set to make a comeback and will return for its fourth season sometime next year.

Fans have been eagerly anticipating season 4 for a long time now, but after some understandable delays, production has wrapped, meaning that it will arrive sooner rather than later.

Below, you’ll find all the up-to-date information you need about Stranger Things 4, its premiere on Netflix, its cast, any trailers and more.

Stranger Things season 4 release date

While no definitive release date has been given for Stranger Things season 4, it is widely accepted that the show will premiere in 2022. Fans had initially hoped that a late 2021 release might have been possible, but with the delays that didn’t come to fruition.

There’s a strong chance that we might get the fourth season’s release date at Netflix’s Tudum event.

The vast majority of Stranger Things‘ main cast will return for the fourth season, meaning that Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers), David Harbour (Jim Hopper), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair), Sadie Sink (Max Mayfield), Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers), Joe Keery (Steve Harrington), Maya Hawke (Robin Buckley), Priah Ferguson (Erica Sinclair), Cara Buono (Karen Wheeler) and Brett Gelman (Murray Bauman) will all be back.

Meanwhile, new series regulars will include Jamie Campbell Bower in the role of Peter Ballard, Eduaro Franco as Argyle and Joseph Quinn as Eddie Munsen. Horror legend Robert Englund will also appear in a recurring role as Victor Creel while former series regular Michael Modine will return as Dr. Martin Brenner resurfaces via flashbacks.

Stranger Things season 4 trailer

Netflix has released two teaser trailers for Stranger Things 4, teasing fans with what’s to come in the main trailer. The first of them was released back in August as a sneak peek that featured the first new footage from season 4.

The second was a darker, more unnerving teaser that referenced mysterious events that may take place outside of Hawkins in the ’80s as the world becomes more stranger. It was released with a teaser for “003” at Netflix’s Tudum, suggesting that the first full trailer will arrive at that event.

This all comes after an initial clip released back in 2020 confirmed that Hopper was actually alive.

Stranger Things season 4 synopsis: What is it about?

In spite of his apparent fate in the season 3 finale, he is somehow alive. He’s also in Russia (“The American” that was teased in the finale) and will face both human and otherworldly threats.

Meanwhile, the teaser given to fans by the Duffer Brothers confirms that, back in the States “a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything…”
