Stranger Things 4 Everything we know about the next season

first_img Tags 4 Stranger Things season 4 might start filming in October Watch the Stranger Things cast play their own video game Stranger Things season 3: Rad ’80s details you might have missed Fans can’t wait for Stranger Things to return. Netflix Warning: Spoilers for previous seasons of Stranger Things ahead.We’re ready when you are, Netflix. Stranger Things has to come back for a fourth season, right? Just because the streaming network hasn’t yet officially announced season four, we believe it’s coming. After all, the creators, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, have said they wanted four (or even five) seasons of the 1980s-set horror-sci-fi series.Netflix didn’t respond to a request for comment, but we fans have reason to hope. According to CNET sister site ComicBook.com, a listing from film trade publication Production Weekly indicates the sci-fi/horror series is going to begin shooting a fourth season in the fall of 2019. The basicsStranger Things took the streaming world by storm when it debuted in the summer of 2016. Set in the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s, the show begins with the disappearance of young Will Byers. It turns out that researchers at Hawkins National Laboratory have opened a gate to the creepy alternate dimension known as the Upside Down. And they’re apparently also experimenting on a group of special children, one of whom, known as Eleven, escapes and befriends Will’s group. See all the Stranger Things season 3 photos 59 Photos Commentscenter_img Since then, viewers have been introduced to hideous and deadly demogorgons and demodogs, met various other children with psychokinetic powers, and lost a variety of beloved and not-so-beloved characters. Part of the show’s charm is its varied young cast, who feel like real friends, and its nostalgic setting. (The third season took viewers back in time to Starcourt Mall circa 1985, from Orange Julius sipping to Glamour Shots-style photo snapping.)Season three earned stellar ratings from critics and fans alike. CNET’s own Jennifer Bisset offered high praise for season 3, dubbing it “a tighter, faster-paced… run of eight episodes that manages to tap every emotional vein of childhood (even for those who didn’t grow up in the ’80s).”How to watchGet yourself a Netflix subscription. Stranger Things is a jewel in the service’s crown of original series’, and it’s the best way to ensure you get all the new episodes plus access to the first three seasons.Not sure Netflix is worth it to you? The service offers a free one-month trial, so if you sign up close to the new season’s premiere, whenever that is, you can soak it up with previous years’ seasons and then cancel your membership without cost. But if you do this for season four and a fifth season is later added, you might have to sign up again later on and pay up (or find a Netflix-subscribing friend who’ll invite you over).Release date, production infoThis is the $64,000 question. That notice in Production Weekly that we mention above says filming could begin in October 2019, meaning the new series might be available in 2020. But that sounds a little optimistic. There were 15 months between seasons one and two, and about 20 months between seasons two and three. Season three came out on July 4, 2019, so unless the Duffers speed up their process, it might be late 2020, or even sometime in 2021, before we see a fourth season. The first season had eight episodes, the second nine, and the third eight again, so we assume a fourth season would have around eight episodes. They’ll presumably all be uploaded to Netflix at once, the better to suit your binge-watching needs.Filming for past seasons has taken place in and around the Atlanta, Georgia area. It would seem likely that will continue, but in May 2019, Netflix’s chief content officer gave a statement that threw that into question. Due to a new Georgia law that would prohibit abortions from being performed in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected, the streaming service might reconsider working in the state. Gov. Brian Kemp signed the bill into law in May 2019, but it faces legal challenges before it would go into effect in 2020.Cast: Who’s who?Obviously, we don’t know who’s returning and who’s not, but this show is such a wonderful ensemble piece that we assume most of the cast of the first three seasons will be back. The one big casting question: Is Police Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) still alive, possibly in a Russian prison? Better list him as a “maybe.”Likely to returnMillie Bobby Brown as ElevenFinn Wolfhard as Mike WheelerNoah Schnapp as Will ByersCaleb McLaughlin as Lucas SinclairGaten Matarazzo as Dustin HendersonWinona Ryder as Joyce ByersNatalia Dyer as Nancy WheelerCharlie Heaton as Jonathan ByersMaya Hawke as RobinJoe Keery as Steve HarringtonSadie Sink as Max MayfieldPriah Ferguson as Erica SinclairCara Buono as Karen WheelerMight return? Might not?David Harbour as Jim HopperPlot news, rumors and theoriesEleven as the Big BadNow here’s a juicy rumor. Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, has been one of the show’s main heroic characters since the beginning, escaping from the lab where she was experimented on to help the kids of Hawkins fight the evil around them. She’s even made bullies pee themselves. Such a heroine could never turn bad, right? A theory discussed on Reddit claims that El could have been infected by the Mind Flayer and could be used in the same way the creature manipulated creepy Billy in season three. Far-fetched? Maybe, but it would sure shake things up.Where’s Hop?Beloved characters have died before in Stranger Things. (Barb! Bob!) But there’s been no death — or, assumed death — as big as the possible loss of Police Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour). He seems to die a martyr in the final episode of season three. But in a perplexing and much-discussed scene, viewers discover that there’s an American being held in a Russian prison where other, unluckier inmates are fed to a demogorgon. Seems apparent we’re meant to wonder if that’s Hopper, still alive, and if he’ll somehow make his way back to Joyce, Eleven and crew in a fourth season.The directors speakMatt and Ross Duffer spoke to Entertainment Weekly and dropped some very vague hints about a fourth season’s plot. Ross Duffer addressed the importance of the American in the Russian prison cell, saying that plotline is “obviously going to play a huge role in a potential season four.” (WELL, DUH!) His brother Matt hints at a more national or even global aspect to a fourth season. There may be other towns like Hawkins with creepy labs and access to alternate dimensions. “I think the biggest thing that’s going to happen is it’s going to open up a little bit,” he said. “Not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins.” And speaking of moving outside of Hawkins…Movin’ on upIn that final season-three episode, Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder), her sons and Eleven, who seems to have been taken in by Joyce after Hopper’s possible demise, are moving. She looks through her old battered house one last time and then the family drives away. Where are they off to? Admittedly, we wouldn’t want to stay in a cursed place like Hawkins either, but for the plot’s sake, it would seem she can’t go too far. Joyce, Will, Jonathan and Eleven all need to stay close to the other kids, and it would be so sad if the friend group was split between two different school systems.Eighties eventsThe first season took place in 1983, the second in 1984, and the third in the summer of 1985. So we’d seem to be on track for a 1986 season next, although admittedly, the kids are growing up faster than time is moving onscreen, so things could jump even two years ahead. 1986 has some big pop culture and news events that could play well into a show like this, including the Chernobyl disaster. Considering the Russians were heavily involved in season three, could Chernobyl itself be worked into the show’s mythology? In lighter news, maybe El and Mike could go see Pretty in Pink or Top Gun, and Dustin could teach the kids how to Walk Like An Egyptian.This article was first published on Aug. 12, 2019, and will be updated as news is revealed.

Rail Budget 2015 No Reduction in Already Low Train Fares Says MoS

first_imgA week ahead of the presentation of the Railway Budget, the Centre ruled out any possibility of cutting train fares, terming the current fares as ‘already low’.”It (fare reduction) will not be done. Fares are already low and the government is giving subsidy,” Minister of state for Railways Manoj Sinha said on Wednesday.Sinha was fielding questions from reporters on the possibility of train fare reduction in the upcoming Railway Budget, which will be tabled in the Parliament on 26 February.The Minister noted that while the requirement of the ministry was high, the available resources were limited, and hence the rail budget would have a balanced tone, keeping public interest in mind.Sinha said a Bill to amend an existing law on empowering the Railway Protection Force (RPF) to file FIR will be tabled at the upcoming budget session of the Parliament, which begins on Monday. A Railway Protection Force (RPF) officer uses a sniffer dog to check bags of passengers before their boarding on a train at a railway station in Kolkata July 8, 2014. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government disappointed markets with its first major economic policy statement on Tuesday, promising to seek foreign and private funding for the railways but giving no details of how it would lure investors. India’s state-owned railways are the fourth-largest in the world. They have suffered from years of low investment and populist policies that have kept fares low.He articulated that while the Railways had its own security wing in the RPF, it was hamstrung by the inability to file an FIR for crimes which take place under the Railways’ jurisdiction, reported EconomicTimes.The minister also remarked that 100% foreign direct investment (FDI) has been introduced to allow for developing infrastructure and improve railway safety to overcome the resource crunch facing the largest Indian employer.last_img read more

Failed IAS aspirant enjoys VIP perks for 18 months security breach at

first_imgRepresentational imageCCO Public domainA woman left senior police officials scratching their heads after she posed as a civil servant for 18 months just to enjoy the perks which came with the position. She was also assigned a security detail.Zoya Khan and her husband were arrested for conning the police in and around Delhi, such as Noida, Gurugram, Meerut, Ghaziabad, and Moradabad. The duo has been married for six years. Zoya’s husband quit his job as a banker to study for the civil services exam. Zoya, on the other hand, had attempted the exam in 2007. However, she still wanted to enjoy the VIP perks that civil administrators enjoy.The police grew suspicious when Zoya called SSP Vaibhav Krishna of Gautam Buddh Nagar and demanded to know why there was a delay in sending police escort. India Today reports that the police’s suspicion grew with the phone call and ordered an enquiry and a raid of Zoya’s apartment.During the raid of the three-bedroom apartment, the police recovered fake IDs, two laptops, two walkie-talkies, four android mobile phones, one fake pistol and two luxury car –a black Mahindra XUV 500 with a blue beacon and grey Mercedes. Some of the fake IDs of Zoya showed her as a UNSC officer and also a US diplomat in Afghanistan.Zoya had information on important political rallies in Delhi-NCR region Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing a public meeting in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh.Zoya’s planner showed information on political rallies in Delhi. The investigating officer said the planner had information on the dates of the political rallies in and around Delhi-NCR region.”A planner has been recovered from her residence that mentions the dates of a few political rallies in Delhi-NCR. Even on her laptop, these dates are marked,” an investigating official was quoted as saying by India Today. He added, “A few photographs of top politicians in a separate folder on her laptop also raised suspicion about her vested interests.”Due to the position and power of the political leaders whose information Zoya stored, a thorough probe was conducted to make sure that she is not a threat to the politicians and the country. The report further states that when the police went through her call logs, they discovered that she used to call SSPs and pretended to be the Personal Assistant to Joint Secretary (Foreign) to get her work done. She used an app which helped her convert her voice to a male one.The media reports also said that during Prime Minister Modi’s rally in Meerut last week, she was given a security detail. In fact, she was also part of PM Modi’s security team. This is seen as a major breach of security. However, SSP Krishna said that the reports were false. “No evidence of these two arrested accused going to the PM’s rally in Meerut. The so-called ‘Afghanistan’ connection has not been found. Please do not sensationalise things. This is a cheating/forgery case only,” Krishna wrote on Twitter.last_img read more

North Korean leaders slain halfbrother was a CIA informant WSJ

first_imgKim Jong Nam arrives at Beijing airport in Beijing, China, in this photo taken by Kyodo on 11 February 2007. Photo: ReutersKim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un who was killed in Malaysia in 2017, had been an informant for the US Central Intelligence Agency, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.The Journal cited an unnamed “person knowledgeable about the matter” for the report, and said many details of Kim Jong Nam’s relationship with the CIA remained unclear.Reuters could not independently confirm the story. The CIA declined to comment.The Journal quoted the person as saying “There was a nexus” between the CIA and Kim Jong Nam.”Several former US officials said the half brother, who had lived outside of North Korea for many years and had no known power base in Pyongyang, was unlikely to be able to provide details of the secretive country’s inner workings,” the Journal said.The former officials also said Kim Jong Nam had been almost certainly in contact with security services of other countries, particularly China’s, the Journal said.Kim Jong Nam’s role as a CIA informant is mentioned in a new book about Kim Jong Un, “The Great Successor,” by Washington Post reporter Anna Fifield that is due to be published on Tuesday. Fifield says Kim Jong Nam usually met his handlers in Singapore and Malaysia, citing a source with knowledge of the intelligence.The book says that security camera footage from Kim Jong Nam’s last trip to Malaysia showed him in a hotel elevator with an Asian-looking man who was reported to be a US intelligence agent. It said Ki’s backpack contained $120,000 in cash, which could have been payment for intelligence-related activities, or earnings from his casino businesses.South Korean and US officials have said the North Korean authorities had ordered the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, who had been critical of his family’s dynastic rule. Pyongyang has denied the allegation.Two women were charged with poisoning Kim Jong Nam by smearing his face with liquid VX, a banned chemical weapon, at Kuala Lumpur airport in February 2017. Malaysia released Doan Thi Huong, who is Vietnamese, in May, and Indonesian Siti Aisyah in March.According to the Journal, the person said Kim Jong Nam had traveled to Malaysia in February 2017 to meet his CIA contact, although that may not have been the sole purpose of the trip.US president Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have met twice, in Hanoi in February and Singapore last June, seeming to build personal goodwill but failing to agree on a deal to lift US sanctions in exchange for North Korea abandoning its nuclear and missile programs.last_img read more
