Netflix has revealed the name of the apparent primary antagonist in Stranger Things 4.
The road to Stranger Things 4 has been a long and bumpy one. The series was originally going to be released in early 2021 but production delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic continuously delayed it. Now a hard release date has finally been set and the beginning of the end will soon start.
