Stranger Things Star Joe Keery Reveals Season Four Will Be 'A Lot Scarier' Than Previous Outings
Joe Keery reveals the upcoming season of Stranger Things will be much scarier than previous ones.
Joe Keery believes Stranger Things season four is going to be "a lot scarier" than the Netflix hit's past seasons.
The 28-year-old star teased what's to come next season in an interview with Total Film Magazine on Friday as he spoke about his upcoming project Free Guy.
Talking about the show's highly awaited return to the small screen, Kerry said, "Oh man, it's pretty amazing – the Duffer brothers have really done it again."

Joe continued, "I think that this year – and I know I say this every single year – but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years, because last year was pretty dark."
Season three saw the protagonists facing a major challenge in the form of the Mind Flayer, a mysterious entity with total influence over the Upside Down that began to take over the minds of numerous Hawkins locals.
Using Max's brother Billy (Dacre Montgomery) as his key target, the Mind Flayer attempted to assasinate Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) for shutting the portal between the real world and the Upside Down, but was eventually defeated.
Keery plays Steve Harrington in the Netflix series, and although production had begun for the season, filming was suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic.
There is no confirmation as to when production will resume for the fourth season or when it will finally premiere on Netflix.
Season three concluded with Jim Hopper's presumed demise after he vanished, while Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) invaded a underground Russian laboratory that was attempting to open up the Upside Down gateway.
Yet the season four teaser trailer showed that Hopper was actually taken prisoner towards the shocking end to the finale as he was revealed to be in a detention camp.

David Harbour, who portrays Hopper, announced that the series was supposed to be back in early 2021 at the Instagram live Q&A session last month.
Keery said, "[Season four was] supposed to come out early next year, I think, although I don't have authority on this."
Speaking about the delay in production, David added: "I got an email from the producers saying we're shutting down for a couple of weeks."
The actor continued, "We don't know what any of this means. My hope is we get it up and running as soon as possible but I also suggested to Lily [Allen, his girlfriend] that season four should be animated."
