As we all know, Stranger Things Season 4 will release in two volumes so the fact that they are splitting the season into two parts could mean the show may jump an unknown amount of time during that break.
And if not during the break, we can at least expect the new season to begin after a small or even big time jump as the characters look a little older than when we last saw them in Season 3.
In addition, the Duffers also stated in their letter that Season 5 would be the last, so perhaps a jump in time will help hurtle the characters into the finale a little more smoothly.
IS MARTIN BRENNER ALIVE?
Dr. Martin Brenner, the main scientist who experimented on Eleven when she was a child and who she refers to as “papa,” is alive. This isn’t a huge stretch since Matthew Modine is listed as a cast member for Season 4.
However, the last time we saw Dr. Brenner, he had presumably been murdered by the Demogorgon at the end of Season 1. But he met his demise off-screen, leaving room for him to return down the line.
Specifically, the episode titled “Papa” will likely feature him heavily, and “The Massacre at Hawkins Lab” could take us back to when he was murdered and allow us to follow his movements throughout Seasons 2 and 3.
WHEN WILL HOPPER AND ELEVEN REUNITE?
As we saw in the "Welcome to California" teaser, Eleven is dragged by two shady men, which most likely means the questionable people who experimented on her are still hunting her down.
With Hopper in the hands of the enemy, this could be how Hopper and Eleven reunite, as they both could potentially be used as leverage against the other.
WILL SEASON 2’S SUPER-POWERED KIDS RETURN?
In Season 2 of Stranger Things, Eleven met Kali, another kid with superpowers who was also experimented on at the Hawkins Laboratory. Kali’s number was 8, and she could create illusions and distort reality.
After Eleven went back to Hawkins to save her friends, Kali and the other kids were never referenced again through Season 3. However, Season 4 could see their return.
WHAT IS CREEL HOUSE?
One of the first teaser trailers for Stranger Things Season 4 takes us back to the 1950s as an unknown family moves into Creel House.
The house in question belongs to a man named Victor Creel. Played by Robert Englund, Victor, in the present day, is at a psychiatric facility after murdering his family, as briefly glimpsed in the teaser trailer.
It suggests the Upside Down is breaking through into the world, interfering with the electricity (as we’ve seen before in Season 1).
So, these are the 5 Stranger Things Season 4 Theories which could make this season more terrifying.
