Stranger Things Season 4 is coming to an end after just over two months, and to wait for a full-length trailer, Netflix has unveiled 16 new first look photos from the return of the hit horror series. In addition, we have the official summary, complete cast list of Stranger Things 4, and details of which episodes will be directed by the directors. In a prepared comment, Ross Duffer, co-producer of Stranger Things, noted that the new fourth season “leaned too much into the realm of ghost movies” and that some fan theory was “surprisingly” correct. Duffer reiterated that Stranger Things 4 episodes are “very, very long” – we’ve run nine-episodes before, which means the runtime of this episode will be longer.
“I think so [fans will] Be happy when they see [Stranger Things 4]Duffer added: “It’s very, very long, which is why it’s taking us so long. I’m constantly fascinated by how sharp the fans are, and how fast they can do something with very little information.”
Duffer also talks about how Stranger Things have evolved over the years: “When we pitched it on Netflix so many years ago, we did it like kids … The Guinness on ET is their story. And adults are in jaw and close encounters [of the Third Kind]And then the teens have nightmares on Elm Street or Halloween. But, this year, we don’t have kids. We can’t guess anymore. And so, all of a sudden, we’re leaning too much into the horror movie territory we love. It was fun to make that change. “
Here is the official summary of Stranger Things 4 from Netflix:
