I'm assuming they're fast tracking 4 since the kids aren't getting any younger and several of the actors are now becoming more in-demand.
If you follow their typical production schedule thusfar, S4 could drop late fall of this year yep. S5 (final season) would then drop summer of 2022.
They seem to enjoy holiday themed releases. S2 dropped at Halloween, S3 dropped July 4th, so yeah, I'd wager S4 hits either Thanksgiving or Christmas this year. Probably Thanksgiving.
They always said 4 or 5 seasons. And since S4 is in production and no one has said its the final one yet, you can almost certainly say there will be one more season after this. 5 seasons total. Netflix would probably be pushing for more since it's one of their top shows ever, but if the Duffers hold strong, itll end with 5.
He's a prisoner doing prisoner work in this teaser. Hence all the guns.
“The American” was the most obvious “Hopper is alive” flag they could have given us.
No no, I get it, what I mean is that the cliffhanger made it seem like the russians saw hopper as a special prisoner so why would they just put him to work like any other prisoner instead of, idk, stick him in a lab or something? Does that make sense?
It's possible "The American" is still Brenner. They could both be there.
