The latest set photo from Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 reveals the surprising return of a major character.

Spoilers ahead for Stranger Things 4.

Now that Netflix has resumed production on Stranger Things 4, a photo from the set reveals a shocking return from a major character. Thanks to the violent nature of the Demogorgon, the Mind-Flayer and the Upside Down, there’s been a number of attacks and killings throughout the three seasons so far. But the new set photo suggests that one character who was previously presumed to be dead will make a surprise return in Stranger Things 4.

The photo from ‘strangerthings4.updates’ on Instagram shows actor Matthew Modine arriving on the set of the upcoming season. Since Modine played a major role in the first season of Stranger Things as Dr. Martin Brenner and was last properly seen being attacked by the Demogorgon, it’ll be interesting to see how the show explains his return. Obviously, an illusion of Brenner made by Kali briefly taunted Eleven in season two. Take a look at the shot of Matthew Modine on Instagram below.


What do you make of the news that Matthew Modine is back as Dr. Martin Brenner? How will Eleven cope with his return? Sound-off in the comments below!

Here is the official synopsis for the third season of Stranger Things:

“It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.”

Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, and Cara Buono.
