Exclusive first look at Dustin, Lucas and Erica in Season 4
Before the return of stranger things for its fourth season later this year, NME has an exclusive image of the new episodes.
Scheduled to be released in two volumes, with the first five episodes arriving on Netflix on May 27, stranger things season four brings fans back to the town of Hawkins, Indiana once again.
While trailers have largely focused on the story of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and her new life in California, a new image shows Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) alongside Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and his sister Erica (Priah Ferguson) using what looks like a gaming device branded with the MB Games logo.
You can check out the image below.
A synopsis for the fourth season reads: “It has been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Grappling with the consequences, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made it any easier.
“In this most vulnerable time, a horrific new supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery which, if solved, could finally bring an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.”
After the first batch of episodes in May, the second volume of the fourth season will be released five weeks later on July 1.
Last month, show creators The Duffer Brothers also confirmed stranger things will end after season five.
In a note announcing the release date for season four, the duo wrote, “Seven years ago we planned the full story arc for stranger things. At the time, we predicted that the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too big to tell in four, but – as you’ll soon see for yourselves – we’re now racing towards our finale. The fourth season will be the penultimate season; season five will be the last.
“There are still many more exciting stories to be told in the world of stranger things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes. But first, we hope you stick with us as we wrap up this story of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, a broken police chief and a fierce mother, a small town called Hawkins and from an alternate dimension known only as the Upside Down. As always, we appreciate your patience and support.
stranger things volume one of season four will be released on Netflix on May 27.
