A part of us knew it. We weren’t gonna get Stranger Things season 4 in 2021. But to get the news is still a little bit of a bummer, we’ll admit it.
Fans have been waiting for a long time for answers. Though, at least, Netflix pretty much confirmed one that seemed obvious, and yet, was the biggest question mark going into season 4, the issue of Hopper. We’d had that knowledge for a few months now.
But we still didn’t know when the new season was coming, and as dates for other big projects were announced in the next few months, we started suspecting that we would have to wait much longer than we wanted.

The synopsis for the fourth season hasn’t been released yet, but here are the season 1-3 ones, just in case you needed a refresher:
Stranger Things: A love letter to the ’80s classics that captivated a generation, Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
Stranger Things 2: It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
Stranger Things 3: It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.
