Following another successful series in 2018, Stranger Things creators the Duffer Brothers announced in September it would be returning for a fourth series.
The next news we heard of the series was in February 2020 when they dropped the first teasers trailer for the series.

Also returning is David Harbour, who plays the much-loved Chief Hopper.
