Since its inception in July 2016, Netflix’s Stranger Things has taken the world by storm and now has three successful seasons under its belt, with its most recent grossing over 12.8 million viewers in its premiere weekend alone. It is, therefore, no surprise that a fourth season has already been announced, but what was not expected was the tag line that came with that announcement.
On September 30th Netflix posted a 38-second clip all over social media announcing the much anticipated fourth season of the 80s based sci-fi show. This clip showed the iconic Stranger Things logo being entangled in the creepy upside-down dimension before cutting to the surprising new tag line “We’re not in Hawkins anymore”. This gives way numerous possibilities as to what could happen next as so far, all par one episode, Season 2 The Lost Sister, have been centered around the sleepy town of Hawkins and its numerous pop culture references.
If the show is really taking this route and leaving Hawkins, it can answer all manner of questions that are still to be answered. To name a few; who is the American in the Russian Prison? Will El find more people with powers like her? Can Will finally get the chance to play D&D?
Following the teaser, the internet being the internet has become rampant with countless weird fan theories like the upcoming season including time travel all the way to the fourth season coinciding with the Chernobyl incident.
But with no release date yet it means that the season is probably quite early in production, so all of this is just speculation as to what could possibly happen. So, when opening the door to the upside-down, the internet, and the many theories that come with it make sure to keep a three-inch minimum.
