Stranger Things: S4 - get ready for the weirdest season yet
Things are about to get even stranger in Stranger Things.
There's not long to wait now for Stranger Things: S4 - the first part of the fourth season will debut May 27. As a recent Stranger Things trailer showed (which you can watch below), this season is going to be a lot different compared to the rest. The group is now split so the action will not just be taking place in Hawkins, while Jim Hopper is in Russia and there's new big bad to compete with.
To add to this, Stranger Things star Sadie Sink (who plays Max Mayfield) has been speaking to People magazine and things are about to get very bizarre.
"It's the most bizarre season we've ever had," says Sink."Just the scale of it is out of this world."
She continues: "We get to explore a lot of different themes and different sides of the characters that everyone knows and loves, so I'm looking forward to it."
The sheer scale of Stranger Things
It's interesting that Sink mentions the scale of Stranger Things: S4. The WSJ revealed last month that it's believed that each episode of the new season cost a reported $30 million to produce. If this is correct then that's twice the price it cost HBO to make an episode of Game Of Thrones.
Stranger Things: S4 couldn't come at a better time for Netflix. Some key shows on the services have ended (Ozark) and it has taken a bit of a hit in its last financials, losing subscribers for the first time.
The fourth season of Stranger Things has been revealed as the penultimate season, with Season 5 ending the show as we know it. It has been revealed that we will see a number of Stranger Things spin-offs, however.
Stranger Things: S4 heads to Netflix 27 May - here's the official synopsis for the officially "weirdest season yet":
- These are the best Netflix shows you can stream right now.
