Stranger Things 4, the fourth season of the hit Netflix show, has arrived on the streaming platform. It’s been nearly three years since the last season was released but for the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana and our favorite heroes, it’s only been six months. The young characters seemed to have grown up so fast but running away and trying to survive supernatural creatures from The Upside Down can put a toll on your body. (Being sarcastic here, of course).
Three years is a long gap between Stranger Things 4 and season 3. Especially for a show with its timeline that stays pretty close to each season. If you don’t have time to rewatch the previous season, here’s a quick study guide to where Stranger Things last left off.
While that was happening, Dusting and Erica (Priah Ferguson, Lucas’s little sister, used Dustin’s radio to lead Hopper and Joyce through the tunnel system below Starcourt. They posed as Russian agents to gain access to the giant laser. Although Hopper defeated a super-strong agent while inside the laser’s chamber, he was also vaporized when the machine was destroyed. At least that’s what it seemed like.
The Byers and Eleven Move To California
Joyce felt the need to move her family out of Hawkins due to the continuing horrors her and her family have faced. She and her boys moved to California along with Eleven who is now without her adoptive father and her powers.
