New set photos from Stranger Things tease a mysterious new group that is poised to enter the fold in the highly anticipated fourth season.
New set photos from the highly anticipated fourth season of Stranger Things appear to tease a Hell-ish new group poised to enter the fold. Production on the season was halted in March 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. It has since resumed, picking back up in September in Georgia. All of the main cast will be back for the fourth season, including newly introduced Robin, played by Maya Hawke. In addition to the main cast, Priah Ferguson was bumped up to a series regular as Lucas’ sister.
The fourth season of Stranger Things, like prior seasons, is highly anticipated. The series has become one of Netflix’s biggest hits and its crown jewel. The fourth season has a lot of questions to answer, including what exactly happened to Hopper (David Harbour). Fans will also be interested in finding out just where Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Will (Noah Schnapp), and Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) are going, with the trio set to move out of Hawkins, Indiana, with Joyce (Winona Ryder).

In a series of tweets posted to the Stranger Things Twitter account, the logo for the Hellfire Club was revealed, in addition to a few other teases. The presence of the Hellfire Club had already been teased when the title of the first episode was revealed, but this new look gives fans a deeper peek at the club. The logo shows off a demonic face underneath stylized text of the name of the club. There are also some polyhedral dice in the logo, which could point to the Hellfire Club being somehow related to Dungeons and Dragons. Additionally, Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin, is shown waving a Hellfire Club flag in a slow-motion video.
Stranger Things has always done well in expanding its scope while still retaining the same feel of its earlier seasons. Introducing an entirely new group into the fold, while not unusual, is a sign of the ever-expanding scope of the series. This is even more interesting when considering that this fourth season will see some of the group move out of Hawkins, while Hopper is stuck in Russia, according to a teaser. The exact nature of the Hellfire Club is unknown and, while its name may be sinister, one character’s involvement could make it more innocent than it seems.
Dustin seems to be involved with the Hellfire Club somehow. With him being left behind in Hawkins with Mike, Lucas, and Max, the Hellfire Club could be a new name for the group. Now that they’re down a few vital members, a renaming would be in order for the gang. This could mean, at least initially, a split perspective in the season, with some episodes focusing on Mike, Dustin, and the gang, with others focusing on Will and Eleven’s adventures. The group will surely be reunited at some point, though, with some episode titles teasing future developments in the season. With filming resumed, it is likely that fans will get to see what happens to Eleven and the gang sometime in 2021, which is around the same amount of time between seasons two and three of Stranger Things.
