It looks like Robert Englund is bringing his nightmares to even more young people.
A new teaser for the fourth season of the Netflix hit Stranger Things dropped this week, as reported by Deadline, and the clip highlights the eerie Creel House, belonging to Victor Creel, played by the longtime face of the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Check out the trailer on this page.
Englund’s Creel character–to be introduced when Season 4 debuts sometime next year–is described as a “disturbed and intimidating man” who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a horrible murder in the 1950s.
Fans have had a long wait since the Season 3 finale–due to production snags caused by the pandemic. At the end of the show’s third season, Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) took her sons Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) and Will (Noah Schnapp) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) out of Hawkins to start a new life, following the explosion aimed at destroying the Soviet lab to The Upside Down.
The episode’s final scene then jumps to the USSR, where guards are feeding a prisoner–“not the American”–to an imprisoned Demogorgon. Talk about cliffhangers.
Stranger Things–led by creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer–also stars David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Amybeth McNulty, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen and Grace Van Dien.
In the series so far, the residents of Hawkins, Ind. have been dealing with the supernatural threats posed by the alternate dimension known as The Upside Down in the 1980s.
