Ever since the release of its first season back in 2016, Stranger Things has solidified its place as the most popular show in the history of any Netflix original. With the introduction of lovable characters, nostalgic visuals, and a deep story seeping with lore, it’s no surprise the show has built up such an engaging fanbase.
And by dipping its toes in everything from the earlier works of Steven Spielberg to the extended Dungeons and Dragons universe, of course this fanbase is made up of science-fiction and fantasy lovers alike.
In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that season 4 of Stranger Things is by far the most anticipated Netflix release of next year. A truly incredible claim considering that it finds itself in the company of shows like Stranger Things and Cobra Kai, each with their own cult followings.
But with great anticipation comes great responsibility, with the showrunners having quite the task of keeping the story fresh while playing to the expectations of fans to avoid an unfortunate Game of Thrones-like ending.
So while we wait for 2021 to come around, let’s take a look at some of the craziest fan theories that might be coming true in the upcoming season of Stranger Things; and although none of this has been confirmed, be wary of any potential spoilers up ahead.
