Stranger Things seasons 1-3 took me on a roller coaster ride. Not only did I see a cat get eaten alive, watch one of my favorite places get torn apart (the mall), jump from my couch every time the word Demogorgon even came up, but I was also lead to believe that one of my favorite characters was dead. I don’t know how much more I can take, Hawkins, but we’re about to find out.

There will be 9 episodes, making it one episode longer than season 3

Stranger Things writers tweeted this picture last week. 9 scripts = 9 episodes

Great, an additional hour for me to be scared out of my mind.

This season will be even darker

Joe Keery, aka everyone’s favorite babysitter, aka Steve, told Total Film Magazine “Oh man, it’s pretty amazing – the Duffer brothers have really done it again. I think that this year – and I know I say this every single year – but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark.” WHYYYYY

Product on season 4 already started

According to Seventeen.com, production on season 4 began in February but has hit pause due to COVID-19. No word was given when season 4 would be released before the pandemic, but we can only guess we’ll have to wait until next year to see it 🙁

If you need me, I’ll be putting the finishing touches on my panic room as that seems to be where the Duffer Brothers want me to end up after season 4.
