Stranger Things Cast Then and Now

Finally, the wait is over! Stranger Things Season 4 will be streaming worldwide on May 27th. When the first season was released in 2016, nobody expected that this show is going to create history. As the show gained popularity, the Duffer brothers and Netflix both realized that this is a gold mine. Hence from the second season, the promotion of Stranger Things has taken a whole new level. As a result, 40.7 million household accounts watched the global launch of Stranger Things season 3 breaking all the Netflix records. It looks like the premiere of season 4 is going to break that record too. During the launch of the trailer, and promotions, it was surprising to see the huge transformation in Stranger Things cast.

People thought Stranger Things 3 was the end because the final episode looked like a happy ending. All the characters were wrapped nicely to have a beautiful future ahead. El’s being with her mom and brothers, Joyce is surrounded by the people whom she loves and cares about, and all the other kids living happily in their own world. It was a perfect climax except for Harper’s death.

But when the season 4 trailer came out the surprising element was Harper! He is alive. Held in one of the Russian experimental facilities, Harper seems to be trapped on another planet. Since El has lost her powers it is interesting to watch how season 4 unfolds without damaging the perfection of the previous three seasons. Whatever may be the case, fans are waiting to see season 4 because this will be the last and final season of Stranger Things hence will be released in two parts.

Yes, Stranger Things is coming to an end!

After Stranger Things, he has been part of a few films including the ‘It’ and ‘Richie Tozier’. If you want to see the real Finn, you should visit his Instagram profile where he keeps posting a lot about his activities.

The boy who vanished in season 1! The boy because of who the whole Stranger Things happened! Yes, you are looking at Will. Noah Schnapp played the role of Will in season 1 and now look at him. It is difficult to believe this transformation. We are not sure whether we should be happy for them for growing up so beautifully or sad because they aren’t our favorite kids anymore.
