Stranger Things. The series that hits you right in the nostalgia with a fistful of 80s goodness will at some point return to Netflix for a fourth adventure in the upside-down. So far the kids of Hawkins, Indiana (along with a few adults) have been through unimaginable ordeals. As might be expected, Mikey, Dustin, Lucas, and Eleven aren’t out of the woods yet.
Finn Wolfhard who plays Mikey Wheeler on the series recently spoke with CBC Listen’s q with Tom Power Collider and said the upcoming season will be the darkest of the series. You can check out what he had to say below.
“Every season it gets darker. Really, I will say with Season 3 I was like, this is the darkest season that there’ll ever be, like the exploding rats and everything. But really, Season 4 so far, it’s the darkest season there’s ever been. Every year, it gets amped up, every year it gets funnier and darker and sadder, and everything. Every year, they amp it up.”

I thoroughly enjoyed the first season, I thought it was fantastic. And while I was still entertained I felt Season 2 had a noticeable drop in quality. It seemed like the kids were fighting the same battle for the most part. I was still entertained, but I didn’t like it as much as Season 1. I have similar feelings about Season 3. To me, it feels like the Duffer Bros aren’t utilizing the upside-down to its potential.
The fourth season of Stranger Things still doesn’t have an official release date. Word is fans may receive new episodes later this year, or early next year. This is simply speculation and we’ll have to wait for official word on when the fourth season will premiere.
