4. Stranger Things season 4 will be the darkest season yet

We’ve heard from multiple castmembers that Stranger Things season 4 is going to be the darkest season yet, including Natalia Dyer, Gaten Matarazzo, and Shawn Levy.

I don’t know how this series can possibly get any darker. We’ve seen fan-favorite characters killed, eaten and literally melted and mashed up to form a giant version of the Mind Flayer. It doesn’t get much darker than that.

With each season, the stakes have been raised. In the first season, we saw the group from Hawkins take on a monster in the Demogorgon. In season 2, we saw them take on an army of demodogs and the Mind Flayer. In season 3, we saw them fight off the Russians and a copy of the Mind Flayer made of humans rats, and probably other animals.

I’m guessing season 4 is going to raise the stakes to an all-time high. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the return of the Mind Flayer, more Russians, and possibly other monsters in the new season.

There’s been tons of speculation about possible monsters, especially those of the D&D variety. I like the idea of adding new monsters in Stranger Things season 4, but I’d also be fine with another showdown between our heroes and the Mind Flayer in the new season. The battleground just might be a little different.
