Joyce and the Byers household to have left on the finish of Season 3. They’re in California – we’ve at all times wished to have that like ‘E.T.’-esque suburb aesthetic, which we lastly bought to do that 12 months within the desert; after which we have now Hopper in Russia, after which in fact we have now a gaggle remaining in Hawkins. So we have now these three storylines, are all related and sort of interwoven collectively, but it surely’s simply very completely different tones.” – Matt Duffer

It does have this form of epic high quality to it. It’s a distinct really feel, for positive.” – Matt Duffer
