Weird things It’s finally back with new episodes for fans who’ve waited nearly three years to find out what happens after the defeat of Mind Flayer and the “death” of Jim Hopper. While some questions — such as whether or not Hopper survived — have been answered during the hiatus, the first volume of season four will shed light on what viewers have been relying on since 2019. However, it won’t be business as usual, with stories that divide Characters among Hawkins, California, Russia, and presumably Upside Down, Based on a full trailer! Millie Bobby Brown, who of course plays Eleven, and more veterans in season one weighed in on season four.
It will be eleven in California in Weird things Season 4, after Hawkins left with the Byers family at the end of Season 3 in the wake of what appeared to be Hopper’s death. The Great California-themed trailer She revealed that she and Will are heading to high school, and that they are officially separated from The Party. The cast members spoke with CinemaBlend and other outlets, and when asked what El and Will season four would look like in light of the split with their friends thousands of miles away, Millie Bobby Brown shared:
Brown’s perspective may be reassuring for fans who were worried about Eleven and Will (plus Jonathan and Joyce) moving away from the Hawkins event, where “freshening up” could only be a good thing for a four-season show. Although members of the The staff has previewed a change that will be “sad” for fans to watchand critics They seem to pretty much agree on what’s on the way!
It seems that the majority of the party and the older teens (except Jonathan) are stuck in Hawkins, with the mystery of Creel’s house and its possible connections to Vecna. Natalia Dyer, who has played Nancy from the start, shared her thoughts on Season 4 feeling different with all the divided stories and distance between them:
The break between season three and season four would likely have been considerably shorter had it not been for the production shutdown that has affected the entertainment industry due to COVID, the Duffer brothers revealed The reason for splitting the fourth season into two volumes is to send some episodes to fans as soon as possible. (Plus the episodes are extremely long.) Joe Kerry, who plays Steve, agreed with Dyer, then said:
Joe Kerry’s failure to spend time with David Harbor in season 4 isn’t surprising, considering that one of the first reveal of the new episodes came with Hopper footage — both live and almost good — They run in the snows of the Soviet Union. Season posters indicate that Joyce and Murray will share the Hopper story.
Steve and Nancy seem to be joining forces with the younger teens, with Erica in action. The original party members are veterans investigating anything and everything the Upside Down must contend with, although usually with a friend with supernatural powers to help. Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, weighed in in Season 4 with a different feeling with distance:
Given that the Demogorgon that caused so much havoc in Season 1 pales in comparison to the massive Mind Flayer in Season 3, fans can certainly agree with Matarazzo that the show has grown a lot! The Mind Flayer appears to have been defeated forever – or at least locked away in the Upside Down – at the end of Season 3, but all signs point to an even bigger Season 4. Caleb McLaughlin, who was Lucas on the basketball team when the show returned, shared his view:
So, while some characters with the strongest connections will be separate from at least part of Season 4, the cast’s comments suggest that fans can look forward to something bigger and possibly even more exciting than what we’ve seen before. Plus, with nine episodes said to all run in excess of an hour, there’s plenty of time for potential encounters. After all, not even Weird things You could keep the groups separate for an entire season, right?
