November sixth marks the anniversary of when Will Byers went lacking from Hawkins, Indiana whereas using his bike residence at night time. To commemorate the day of that fictional incident, Stranger Issues Day was created in 2018. Briefly, the event honors the most effective exhibits to binge on Netflix. Since then, the unofficial vacation has been celebrated yearly, and the streamer is at present teasing this yr’s festivities. With that, I’ve some hopes concerning what may be revealed.
The official Stranger Issues account on Instagram teased what’s to reach on this coming Monday. In a publish that was shared, a picture of a VHS tape is inserted right into a videocassette participant with 11:06 flashing on the digital clock under. The tagline of the poster reads: “Return to Stranger.” Have a look for your self:
Whereas many followers, together with myself, are probaby hopeful that this yr’s celebration will replace us concerning what we learn about Stranger Issues Season 5, I’m not so positive that’ll be the case. In spite of everything, the tweet very clearly says the day will permit us to “look again on our time in Hawkins.” It’s a little bit of a bummer however an comprehensible one, on condition that SAG-AFTRA remains to be on strike. Nonetheless, there are tons of nice particulars that would nonetheless be revealed this yr. Right here’s a number of I’m hoping for:
I Need To Study Extra About Stranger Issues: The First Shadow
November goes to be a giant month for the Stranger Issues franchise, because the first-ever play tailored from the present is about to premiere on November seventeenth on the Phoenix Theatre in London. Set within the Nineteen Fifties, the manufacturing explores what was happening in Hawkins when Henry Creel (who would later turn out to be Vecna) first moved to city. That will be the proper occasion to focus on on the viral vacation, because it tracks with this yr’s “trying again at Hawkins” mantra.
Followers have already been launched to the solid and certain know which characters are and aren’t included in The First Shadow. Nonetheless, I’d wish to be taught much more! Perhaps we’ll get a fast scene or perhaps a glimpse of what the set goes to seem like.
Audition Tapes For Season 4 Actors Would Be Pretty
The vacation often options some sort of bonus footage from previous seasons, and I believe that custom will proceed this yr. Whereas we have already got a blooper reel for Season 4, we’ve but to see audition tape footage for brand spanking new characters equivalent to Eddie Munson (performed by Joseph Quinn) and Henry/Vecna (performed by Jamie Campbell Bower). Now could be the proper time to launch these tapes — the previous of which may undoubtedly get followers questioning if Eddie is admittedly lifeless.
I am Hoping For Official Season 3 & 4 DVD Collector’s Set Bulletins
Whereas Seasons 1 and a pair of of Stranger Issues have been formally launched on DVD in an extremely cool VHS-style collector’s case, seasons 3 and 4 are nonetheless solely accessible with an energetic Netflix subscription. Provided that streaming companies like Max have been eradicating exhibits with little to no warning, followers have been begging for the discharge of the extra two seasons of the Duffer Brothers’ present, to allow them to add them to their bodily media collections. I personally assume the ST Day could be the proper event on which to drop them, particularly with the vacations simply across the nook.
A New Season Of Past Stranger Issues
In 2017, Netflix created Past Stranger Issues, a seven-part documentary that seemed again on the underrated second season (which deserves extra love). It featured interviews with the solid and in-depth discussions with the Duffers concerning the world they created. The venture was a large hit with followers however, sadly, the documentary was by no means introduced again.
As somebody who has many questions on what went into creating Seasons 3 and 4, I might like to see the docuseries resurrected. To not point out, it might assist to tide followers over till the ultimate season arrives.
Let’s Get Some Season 5 Teases
Netflix has tried to make it clear that this yr’s celebration will give attention to a “look again,” however I nonetheless can’t assist however hope we additionally get some information concerning the fifth and last season. After the tip of Season 4, Quantity 2, I started to suspect that point journey goes to play a giant position within the last season, and the teaser for the vacation solely spurred that standard Stranger Issues idea on extra. Maybe this the crew’s manner of giving us a touch about what’s to return.
Up to now, this vacation has additionally been once they unveiled the episode titles. The truth is, final yr’s celebration gave us the title of the Season 5 premiere: “The Crawl.” If the scripts have been all accomplished earlier than the WGA strike started, then this may be the fitting time to disclose them. Let’s hope that at the very least a number of of the needs listed right here come true!
Preserve your eyes peeled on November 6 to see what Stranger Issues Day has to supply. Till then, preserve streaming the present on Netflix.
