On April 12, the trailer for the fourth season of ‘Stranger Things’ came out, with some secrets and important details. The new installment of the franchise will arrive on Netflix very shortly, although it will be divided into two parts. The first five chapters will be released on May 27 and the remaining five on July 1, something similar to what ‘The paper house’ did with its fifth season.
According to The Wall Street Journal, The new season of the brothers Ross Duffer and Matt Duffer would double the budget per episode of the eighth season of ‘Game of Thrones’. According to this source, each episode of the new installment of Netflix would have cost approximately 30 million dollars, while those of the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” would have cost 15, basically half.
This could explain the long wait time since the third season ended. In The Hollywood Reporter, the producer of the series Shawn Levy affirms that this will be “by far the most ambitious, spectacular, extensive and epic we’ve ever done”. Too many adjectives not to make fans start biting their nails waiting for his release. Levy is convinced that he is waiting for her “it will be worth it” and denies that it was due to the COVID-19 pandemic at all. Instead, he attributes it to the sheer complexity of the project.
The news draws even more attention if we are aware of the difficulties that Netflix has been having with the loss of its subscriptions and a large part of its value. Despite the fact that, according to La República, the giant of online streaming services will start 2022 leading (as usual) the tables in terms of subscriptions (followed by Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and HBO Max), LR affirms that the co-founder of the Reed Hastings company would have lost 30% of his fortune so far this year.
Will we see more of ‘Stranger Things’ in the future?
We already know for sure that there will be a fifth season of ‘Stranger Things’ and also that this will be the last. In an interview for SFX magazine (via ), Matt and Ross Duffer talked about possible sequels or spinoffs that could arise after its end, which would not be crazy due to the great success of the franchise and the immense benefit it has given to the platform. Matt Duffer states that “they have some ideas” about future projects, but stresses that it must be something “exciting enough to make us wish we wanted to do it again” and that they “should be careful about what it is and think about whether to go ahead with it or not.”
For his part, Ross Duffer also clarifies that It’s not as easy as taking the world of ‘Stranger Things’ and extending it, but it has to be something unique and original in itself. “The key for us is that it has to be something that is our own and different, not that we are going back to doing what we have already done, because what would be the point of that?”explains the producer and screenwriter of the series.
The Serie is starring Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Sadie Sink, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, and Joe Keery.
