In this first round of 7 episodes, we were able to discover the daily life of our heroes, separated for the first time between Hawkins, California, and Russia. In Hawkins, a supernatural threat hovers as several teenagers are found dead in circumstances as strange as they are atrocious. We discover at the beginning of season 4 that Vecna, an upside-down monster, can control and kill the inhabitants of Hawkins from a distance. Warning, spoilers. Over the episodes, we discover that Vecna ​​is none other than Henry Creel, also a nurse in Hawkins’ laboratory in the 1970s-80s, who was locked up in the Upside Down by Eleven. The latter also manages to regain her powers by remembering the massacre at Hawkins’ laboratory and her connection to Vecna.

Which actors in the cast of Stranger Things season 4?

Season 4 of Stranger Things saw several actors and actresses join the cast, for an episode or for a larger role. As such, we can cite Jamie Campbell-Bower (Twilight, Sweeney Todd), who plays a nurse in the Hawkins laboratory (spoilers for the first 7 episodes) and the big bad Vecna. Joseph Quinn also appears in this season 4 in the role of Eddie Munson, newcomer to the band. In Russia, it is Thomas Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones) who lends his features to prison guard Dimitri.

Other actors complete the cast of Stranger Things in season 4. This is the case of Eduardo Franco, who plays Argyle, but also Grace Van Dien, Chrissy, the first victim of Vecna. Robert Englund makes an appearance for one episode to play Victor Creel, while Mason Dye is Jason Carver. Yuri Ismaylov is played by Nikola Duricko and Lieutenant Colonel Sullivan is portrayed by Sherman Augustus. Elodie Grace Orkin (Angela), Regina Ting Chen (Miss Kelly) and Amybeth McNulty (Vickie) are also part of the cast.

Kate Bush takes center stage with Stranger Things 4

The massive viewing of Stranger Things has allowed Kate Bush to once again become an icon for a new generation. Its title, “Running Up That Hill”, pranced for several days at the top of the charts. It must be said that the song released in 1985 plays a key role in the plot of season 4: Max listens to it in effect on a loop, and this song allows him in particular to get out of the grip of Vecna. The scene of episode 4, “Dear Billy”, is eloquent in this regard and allowed Kate Bush’s song to experience a second wind.

It’s been since 2016 that Stranger Things has fascinated Netflix subscribers. Season 4 ends this Friday, July 1, 2022. However, it will not be the series finale, as a season 5 is currently in production. The creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, have however announced that this fifth burst of episodes will be the last. For the moment, little is known about this season 5. We do know, however, that the wait between season 4 and season 5 will be shorter than that between 3 and 4 (three years, in particular due to the crisis of the coronavirus). The Duffer brothers have also hinted that a time jump will be made between the two seasons so that the age of the characters sticks more closely to that of the actors.

A spin-off is however in preparation, the outlines of which have not yet been revealed. The Stranger Things spin-off will be “very, very different” from what the series has offered so far, Matt and Ross Duffer said in an interview with Variety. It would also seem that only Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) knows what this spin-off will be about, since he would have been the only one to guess the plot that the Duffer brothers have in mind. However, he promised not to say anything about it before the official announcements.
