Stranger Things Synopsis

Set in the 1980s in the fictional small town of Hawkins, Indiana, where apparently everyone knows everyone, Stranger Things focuses on a mystery, the cold war tensions, government experiments, and a gateway to the upside-down.

The first season follows an investigation into the disappearance of a young boy (Will Byers) amid mysterious phenomena in the town and the emergence of a girl with psychokinetic skills (Eleven). Dark agencies and ominous, otherworldly forces descend on the village.

The second season focuses on Will's side effects from being in the Upside Down, with its entities crawling into the actual world. As the kids continue their war against the Upside Down forces, the third season centers on Eleven and Mike's relationship.

Stranger Things Season 4 Release and

Teaser

It's official, season 4 is coming in 2022. The first episode of the upcoming season is titled "Chapter One: The Hellfire Club." A minute-long creepy clip dropped on Stranger Thing's YouTube channel on May 6, 2021. It began with some children in a room in the Hawkins facility, where Eleven initially escaped from. Then, Dr. Martin Brenner entered and told the kids that he has "something very special planned" for them. After that, the camera zoomed in to a door with the number "11," and Brenner spoke, "Eleven, are you listening?"

In what was the second teaser of the upcoming season, viewers can see a facility made in a snowy landscape in some secluded place where workers are constructing a railway track. At this point, the camera zooms in to one worker's face. A Sneak Peek video into Season 4 was also released on August 6, 2021.
