It has already been more than two years since we’ve gotten new episodes of Netflix’s Stranger Things. Season 3 of the series was released in the summer of 2019, before all of us were aware of the dramatic changes just around the corner.
However, it appears that our long wait will finally bear its fruits. Stranger Things star David Harbour, aka Sheriff Hopper, hypes up Stranger Things Season 4. While he was attending a New York Knicks game, David Harbour took a moment to show an entertaining message on his phone to the fans. It says: “ST4 is coming sooon, promise.”
During the game, he was seen enjoying the match with Stranger Things co-star Noah Schnapp (Will Byers). If you are wondering why he used an extra “o” in “sooon,” it’s either a typo or a hint for the upcoming season; you decide which.

How soon is “sooon” that he is talking about? According to the trailers that were released, Stranger Things Season 4 will be released this summer. The last season came out back in July 2019, so it’s possible that Season 4 will also be released this July.
Whenever a new season of Stranger Things premieres, fans of the series can expect it to either be “truly messed up,” “scary,” or both. In the teasers that were released, a lot of them put emphasis on the horror aspect of the show, together with a lot of ‘80s references. One of the cast in Stranger Things Season 4, Robert Englund (who also played Freddy Kruger in the Nightmare on Elm Street movies) will be playing a character named Victor Creel, who’s described to be a “disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s.” As of now, there’s little information about the character.
We may not know a lot about the upcoming season, but we do know that when Season 4 premieres, a lot of things will be different. As far as the group knows, Sheriff Hopper died. However, from the teasers and trailers that we’ve seen, he’s alive, although we don’t know how.
Stranger Things Season 4 is set to be released on Netflix summer of 2022.
