With its filming delayed by the pandemic from Covid, many details of the new season are not yet known. Big plot details are being kept under lock and key, but in February 2020 a short trailer released on Valentine’s Day revealed that Hopper (David Harbor) is still alive.
The footage shows the sheriff working in the cold of Kamchatka, Russia, where he is imprisoned. Increasing speculation among fans, the Duffer brothers announced that the new installment of the series will explore the world beyond Hawkins.
A second trailer showed the Hawkins Laboratory facilities, where more children with powers similar to Eleven they are supervised by men and women in white coats. The short clip promises new glimpses into El’s past.
Like all previous editions, the fourth will be a love letter to the 80s.
