I fell off watching this show after the first season. Iíve meant to revisit it though.

I say get back on it. You'll thank me later.
BTW, you may also want to check out the aftershow "Beyond Stranger Things" (specifically tied to season 2).

Ugh. I knew she’d be back. That sister is terrible.

Looks like they're maybe going back to the "Lost Sister" business from season two that everyone hated.

While I didn't like that S2 episode, I'd still be interested in more background on the program that created Eleven.

It was so out of left field but I liked it. This show is so good IMO that I will not just watch the new season I will rewatch all previous episodes before hand,

I think that Detroit (?) episode would have been better had they spread it across 2-3 episodes. It would have been less jarring.

I love this show, too. I've watched all the seasons multiple times, including earlier this year, and I'll probably do another full rewatch just before season 4 comes out.

I have actually only seen it all once, so I know I will really dig the rewatch

Re: Stranger Things -- News, Rumors, Casting, etc. Thread (possible spoilers)

Netflix on Thursday announced that the supernatural phenomenon has been renewed for a fifth and final season, ahead of its long-delayed Season 4 premiere. (Speaking of the penultimate fourth season, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer have confirmed that it will be released in two parts — you can read more about that here).

“Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things,” their statement reads. “At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but — as you’ll soon see for yourselves — we are not hurling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; Season 5 will be the last.”

In announcing the final season, the EPs also teased potential spinoffs, writing: “There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things: new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes. But first we hope that you stay with us as we finish this tale of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, of a broken police chief and a ferocious mom, of a small town called Hawkins and an alternate dimension known only as the Upside Down.”

In the meantime, here’s what we know about the imminent Season 4: “It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins,” according to the official logline. “Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.”

As someone who can't get enough of this show, I am glad to hear about the longer runtime for the upcoming season. I'm not bothered by them releasing S4 in two parts, since that means we get some of it sooner, and it's not long between parts.

I'm glad they're ending the show before the actors who play the kids get their AARP cards.

Yeah, hopefully we won't have to wait three years for season 5. Most of the young actors are already a few years older than their characters are in S4.

I made this joke in another message forum:

"Binge season 5 of Stranger Things now! Watch Eleven try to navigate the Upside Down while dealing with hot flashes, while Mike and the gang prepare for their first colonoscopy."

You would have to think they do a "3 years later" thing for this season.

They're doing the same trick as Better Call Saul : Straddling both sides of the June 1st eligibility period to be in the running for Emmys in 2022 & 2023.

At the rate they're going, the kids are going to be standing in line for The Phantom Menace in season five.

Happy Stranger Things Day! (Nov. 6, 1983 was the day Will Byers went missing in season 1)

Here's a little Season 5 nugget from Netflix:

I posted this in the strike thread also:


As much as I am eager for season 5 to be here as soon as possible, I support the strike and I hope writers get better deals and compensation for the work they do.
