Still, through three seasons of nostalgia-tinged spookies, Stranger Things has mostly stayed in the realm of monsters. Whether it was the Demogorgon, its “Demo-dogs”, or the skyscraper-sized Mind Flayer, Stranger Things’ big bads have been more Dungeons & Dragons style creatures from the Upside Down rather than your traditional things-that-go-bump-in-the-night spirits.
Perhaps, however, that is all set to change with Stranger Things season 4. During Netflix’s global fan event, Tudum, Stranger Things creators The Duffer Brothers and actors Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) and Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) unveiled the latest sneak peek at the upcoming season set to premiere in 2022. The Duffers noted that this was the third teaser they’d released (after one featuring Hopper in Russia and another taking place in Brenner’s lab) and that there was still one more on the way.
