‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 release date, new format
‘Stranger Things’ came out 5 years ago. Here are 5 things we know about the new season

Why it matters: The poster is a clear sign of what to expect in the new season.

  • Specifically, “Stranger Things” will be focusing on Hopper’s time in a Russian jail, which was made clear by a trailer that dropped in 2019 before the coronavirus pandemic, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.
  • A second trailer showed several children in hospital gowns playing with toys and games, as the Deseret News’ Lottie Johnson wrote. This was a callback to Room 11, where Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) spent her younger years.
  • The idea of “every ending has a beginning” suggests that viewers may learn more about the Upside Down world and its monsters.
