Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has revealed that the fourth season of the show will be the darkest yet.
Speaking to CBC Listen on Friday, the actor who plays Mike Wheeler – provided an update on what fans can expect from the upcoming season of Stranger Things.
“Every season it gets darker. I will say [with] season three I was like, ‘This is the darkest season that there’ll ever be’ – exploding rats and everything,” he explained. “But really, season four so far… it’s the darkest season that’s ever been [made].
“Every year it gets amped-up; every year it gets funnier, darker and sadder – and everything. So I’m really excited for people to see it.”
As for the status of production, Wolfhard said: “We’re still filming it. ‘Cause of COVID we had to put it on hold, but now they’re back filming right now.”
