Sadie Sink, of Stranger Things, claims that the stakes in season 4 are the highest they’ve ever been. The Netflix series, created by the Duffer Brothers, has been one of the streaming giant’s biggest blockbusters since its first season launched in 2016.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, production of the highly anticipated fourth season came to a halt in March 2020 after only two months, but was able to restart in Georgia in September. The majority of the primary cast, as well as some new prominent individuals, are expected to return.
In season 2, step-siblings Billy (Dacre Montgomery) and Max (Sadie Sink) were introduced, while in season 3, sarcastic Scoops Ahoy employee Robin (Maya Hawke) was introduced. New characters are usually important to the plots and journeys of the main characters in each season, though Montgomery’s character arc ended in season 3, thus he won’t be back for season 4.
Fans have speculated on what Max’s plot will be in season 4 as she cope with Billy’s departure as well as the absence of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), who moved in with the Byers family at the end of season 3.
Sink is already teasing the fans about what to expect from the new season. Sink suggested that Season 4 will be the most important yet in an interview with Collider, noting that the stakes are the highest they’ve ever been on the show.
