Stranger Things

Netflix renews Stranger Things for fourth series

The 80s inspired sci-fi show, created by the Duffer Brothers, follows the residents of Hawkins, Indiana, as they struggle to uncover truth behind a series of supernatural happenings occurring within their previously quiet town.

The new series tagline, ‘We’re not in Hawkins anymore’, suggests that Stranger Things will explore The Upside Down in a new location.

Stranger Things than the Elephant Man

The two-part drama for BBC One sees the actor take on the part of Joseph Merrick, who got the unkind moniker due to severe facial and body deformities.

The Elephant Man follow’s Merrick’s extraordinary journey from his working-class beginnings in Leicestershire into the freak shows that made him famous, and on to his time at the London Hospital and his friendship with Dr Frederick Treves.

Treves saw Merrick exhibited in a shop in 1884 and brought him to the London Hospital where he lived until his death in 1890, aged 27.

Netflix unveils new Stranger Things trailer

The eerie trailer begins with the four childhood friends Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Will (Noah Schnapp) playing innocently on an arcade game.

The atmosphere quickly changes as Will Byers is momentarily transported back into the dark Upside Down world and faced with a much bigger threat than the terrifying Demogorgon.
