And it seems we aren't the only ones desperately counting down the days for the Duffer Brothers-created series to return. Case in point: One social media user, named Xavier, quipped in August that he could have the new season done by next week.
In response to this, Stranger Things star David Harbour joked on Instagram, "Ya boy Jim gonna bring the HEAT to 2022…(sorry, sorry). Go check out the sneak peek on every cast member's Instagram. Psyched to work with Xavier who is directing all episodes of season 5!"
Unfortunately for Harbour, some fans thought this was the actor confirming a fifth season of the show. He later clarified, "I can't believe I have to do this, but in the age of internet click bait nonsense…the season 5 reference is a joke referring to a comment made on @netflix page about how long the show takes to film that I thought was funny. "
As he continued, Harbour confirmed that most of season four had been filmed, adding, "I personally have no knowledge of a fifth season, nor do I know if Netflix has made any decisions regarding further seasons of the show."
While we're hoping that season five eventually gets confirmed, we're currently piecing together what we can expect out of season four. And, thanks to a new teaser, we now know that the highly anticipated season will visit a new bone-chilling locale.
The teaser—which was released during Netflix's TUDUM event in Sept.—shows a family from the '50s moving into a beautiful Victorian-looking abode, called Creel House. However, before we can say "Home Sweet Home," ominous occurrences begin to plague the family. Fast forward to the Stranger Things gang breaking into the now-decrepit house, with Steve (Joe Keery) asking, "Could you maybe clarify what sort of clues we're looking for here?"
As spooky footage splashes across the screen, it is revealed that Creel House has a mysterious connection to the Upside Down!
