Watch out, Nerds.
Stranger Things 4 is almost here. And it's looking rad to the max!
It's been a while since our last visit to the eerie Upside Down, so here’s a quick recap to jog your memory:
Next up: Characters
From fan favourites to others who’ve gone through impressive story arcs, here’s a look at the characters of the Stranger Things universe:
Stepsister of Billy Hargrove, girlfriend of Lucas Sinclair. Mourning the loss of her stepbrother.
New In Season 4
Jamie Campbell Bower
Lt. Colonel Sullivan
Next up: The Upside Down
All of Stranger Things' mysteries track back to the Upside Down, an alternate and parallel dimension that looks like Earth, but is completely devoid of human life. Instead, it is full of shadowy, terrifying creatures.
The whole area is also covered with tentacle-like vines, otherworldly cobwebs, slime-like goo, and bulbous spores, with an eerie darkness that permeates everything.
So far, several characters have made a trip to the Upside Down, or toured its tunnels.
The only way to access the Upside Down is to find a rift or make a gateway between the two parallel dimensions.
The gate can only be opened by a massive amount of power, which we saw when Eleven unintentionally used her powers at Hawkins Laboratory, and when Soviet scientists tried to forcefully do so using an electromagnetic drill under Starcourt Mall.
Next up: Locations
Stranger Things 4 will bring viewers on a spine-chilling journey, from familiar locations like Hawkins to mysterious, faraway destinations.
But if there’s one thing to know, it’s that all roads lead to the Upside Down.
