Season 4 of the Netflix sci-fi horror series ‘Stranger Things’ is darker than any of the previous instalments, as per Noah Schnapp, who has been part of the main cast since the premiere of the franchise.
Schnapp, who plays Will Byers in the show, said in a recent press conference: “It’s a lot darker, yeah. It’s crazy, I remember, I just watched the first two episodes because they just sent us the first four, and it just shocked me how crazy and scary it was.
“Because every season when we do this press I always say ‘It’s so much darker, it’s so much bigger’, which is the classic thing you say for Stranger Things, but this season, when I was watching it I was terrified for some of the parts so it’s definitely scarier.”
Will has been central to the plot from the first season, where he went missing in the Upside Down and had to be saved.
Season 2 saw him grow into a more prominent character, as he formed a connection with the Upside Down creature The Mind Flayer.
When the creature returned in season 3, Will and the gang were able to sever its connection with their world.
