If only Hopper was this comfortable expressing his feelings.
“The vital beating heart behind every season of [Stranger Things] is Joyce and Winona Ryder’s stunning performance for the last seven years,” he wrote beneath a photo of Hopper and Joyce’s anticipated reunion in the finale of Season 4, Part 1, before rattling off a laundry list of the tireless character’s accomplishments thus far. “Joyce will save her son, all the Hawkins kids, Hopper and the withering magnetism of her funky kitchen magnets.”
With Season 4’s final two episodes dropping on Netflix on July 1, series co-creator Matt Duffer recently told TVLine that Part 2 “has a little bit of everything,” adding, “It’s extremely emotional while also having the most action and spectacle we’ve ever had.”
Duffer also strong hinted that Season 4B will clarify the ambiguous sexuality of Noah Schnapp’s Will. “This is where it gets tricky since we haven’t released the whole season yet,” the EP explained. “I just want people to watch the final two episodes” of Season 4.”
Stranger Things 4, which released its first seven XL episodes on May 27, ranked as Netflix’s “biggest premiere weekend ever” for an English-language TV series, by amassing nearly 287 million hours viewed.
