Netflix recently shut down production on the fourth season of Stranger Things. But today Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington teased that the new season will be worth the wait.
Keery tells Total Film: “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.“
Season 2 followed this synopsis: It’s the fall of 1984, about a year after Will Byers was found, and he has been plagued by seeing visions of the Upside Down featuring a more dangerous monster. That leads the boy to see a suspiciously friendly new doctor, with the possibility that Will’s visions are the result of suffering from PTSD. Nancy deals with survivor’s remorse over the death of best friend Barb. Meanwhile, a new sinister entity threatens the Hawkins residents who survived the year-earlier events. New to the town is tomboy Max, who befriends the boys and attracts the romantic interests of Dustin and Lucas.
Season 3 picked back up in the summer of 1985 with the Hawkins crew on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive and remember that friendship is stronger than fear.
The third season saw the return of Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Sadie Sink, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp, Dacre Montgomery, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, Joe Keery, Priah Ferguson, Winona Ryder, and David Harbour. They were joined by Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman’s daughter, Maya Hawke, along with Francesca Reale (Haters Back Off), Jake Busey (Identity), and Cary Elwes (Saw, The Princess Bride).
