Stranger Things Season 4 Photos Tease Russian Prison
Netflix has shared a small handful of behind-the-scenes images for Stranger Things Season 4. The images come after the show's first teaser trailer dropped last week, bringing with it a big, spoilery reveal.
Titled "From Russia with Love," the trailer unsurprisingly has many fans believing the next season of the hit horror show will be set in Russia. It does show Russian soldiers after all, so it's a pretty safe bet 2+2=4.
With the new season in production, we know that some scenes are being shot in Lithuania, specifically the Lukiškes Prison. Located in Vilnius, Lithuania, the imposing 115-year-old prison is indeed a good stand-in for a Russian penitentiary.
While the behind the scenes images show very little that's actually exciting (unless you really enjoy seeing a film crew unload trucks), they do provide fans a glimpse of what they can expect see when it comes to the state of The American name redacted later this year.
Season 3 ended on a big cliffhanger that left the internet reeling, with fan theories grasping for ways to explain the disappearance of Jim Hopper, played by David Harbour. Leading up to last week's not-so-shocking yet surprising reveal, Harbour had remained coy about Hopper's fate.
Telling TheWrap earlier this year, Harbour said:
... I really thought I was ‘The American,’ and then I haven’t heard a lot from them (laughs). So I really don’t know if I am. But I thought I was, but it was never discussed. I didn’t ask [The Duffers], ’cause I felt confident I was — and now I’m not so confident.
Stranger Things Season 4 is set to release on Netflix sometime this year. Considering production is still in the early stages, a November or December air date is most likely, though the streaming company has yet to share anything definitive.
