Stranger Things is one of my favorite shows for quite a few years now. Though, I’m not happy that Netflix let the Duffer Brothers take multi year breaks between seasons. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it took THREE YEARS for season four to release. Fortunately, it’s still pretty good.
The show takes place for what seems to be roughly a year after the events of the third season. Eleven and Will moved to California and settled there. Though Mike definitely gets a chance to visit.
Turns out Jim Hopper is indeed alive. A prisoner at a brutal Soviet camp in Siberia, he’s not going to have an easy time getting back home, if he makes it back home.
We see the rest of the characters growing up or moving on to new things. But little do any of them know of what’s about to happen.
Deep in the Upside-down, a being known as Vecna is starting a killing spree remotely. While it doesn’t seem he can enter our world on foot, he does infiltrate the minds of deeply disturbed and troubled teenagers. When he kills, the body is hovered, bones are snapped, and the eyes…
We also get to see more into Eleven’s past with her “Papa” and “siblings.” There are many twists hidden in her memories.
To be honest, this may be my least favorite season, but that’s fine because the show is still fantastic. It gets a little more back to the roots of the show, but it’s a little predictable as I guessed the twist with mostly accurate results. But I do highly look forward to the upcoming fifth entry.
