Ever since Jim Hopper seemingly perished at the end of Stranger Things Season 3 and the trippy trailer of Season 4 what fans had been quietly praying for, it has been hard to not treat every teaser about the upcoming instalment with bursting excitement. But we finally have something to be genuinely all hyped up about– the first behind-the-scenes pictures from the sets of Stranger Things Season 4!
Recently, the Twitter handle of the Netflix series dropped a series of pictures from the ongoing shooting of Stranger Things Season 4 that build up to be a new teaser about the series. Last month, the Stranger Things writers’ took to Twitter to share the titles of the first three episodes of Season 4, namely: “Chapter One: The Hellfire Club,” “Tick Tock Mr. Clock,” and “You Snooze You Lose.” And now the set photos have confirmed that the name of the first episode isn’t just that, it hints at a new group entering the foray, though given the pictures that follow it ain’t going to be as scary as it sounds.
The Stranger Things Season 4 teaser pictures reveal the scary logo of the Hellfire club– a demon-like face directly underneath the stylized bold name of the club, along with two polyhedral dice, a flaming sword, along with a ball and chain. But the very next images diffuses the tension built by the logo– we see, Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, slo-mo waving a Hellfire Club flag and wearing a tee with its name. So, if Dustin is a part of it, we can put the possibility of something evil being brewed by the club at rest.
What could have possibly happened is that the horror the season synopsis teases at could be afoot in the town of Hawkins and with Will as well as Eleven gone, the remaining group may decide to hand out membership to their dangerous adventures to anyone who is willing to assist them. While the divided group will, undoubtedly, reunite it won’t be without its share of difficulties.
Formerly, the production of Stranger Things Season 4 had begun back in February 2020 but then the coronavirus pandemic struck. But since September, the production is underway again in Georgia, with the series expected to premiere sometime next year.
And as producer Shawn Levy had earlier assured, the next chapter has only benefitted from the major delays and had shared only one Stranger Things Season 4 teaser– that it’s going to be “exceptional!
“I’ll just say the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD. But it impacted very positively by allowing the Duffer brothers, for the first time ever, to write the entire season before we shoot it and to have time to rewrite in a way that they rarely had before so the quality of these screenplays are exceptional, maybe better than ever,” he shared in an interview with Collider.
