What is the plotline of ‘Stranger Things’?
‘Stranger Things’ is a Netflix-exclusive American science fiction horror drama television series developed by the Duffer Brothers. Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Cara Buono, Dacre Montgomery, and Maya Hawke are among the ensemble cast members.
The show is set in Hawkins, Indiana, in the early 1980s, in a fictional rural hamlet. The neighbouring Hawkins National Laboratory purports to do scientific research for the US Department of Energy, but it secretly conducts paranormal and supernatural operations, including those involving human test subjects. They have unintentionally established a doorway to another reality known as “the Upside Down”. The Upside Down’s influence begins to have disastrous consequences for the citizens of Hawkins who are unaware of it.
‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 will premiere with two parts
Show creators Matt and Ross Duffer said in a letter released to fans, “Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for ‘Stranger Things’. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but – as you’ll see for yourselves – we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; Season 5 will be the last”.
‘Stranger Things 4’ will release its first half on May 27th, with the second half premiering on July 1st. Additionally, the possibility of future spin-offs has also been teased by the Duffer Brothers.
“There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes.”
