Netflix teases Stranger Things 4 and what looks to be new locations and a return to The Upside Down, as well announces the Duffer brothers have signed a new deal.
“We’re not in Hawkins anymore,” the video below states which includes the chimes of a clock and familiar creature noises as everything turns into The Upside Down.
The end of Stranger Things 3 saw the Byers family moving to a new unknown town and location, with the post-credit scene also revealing Russia, so it’s likely both locations will be a part of Stranger Things 4, but just how and if they are connected remains to be seen. Some fans also think Hopper survived and is now in Russia.
