Inviting audiences to enter at their own risk, the teaser gives a glimpse into how season 4’s newest character, Victor Creel (Robert Englund), who is described as “a disturbed and intimidating man who is imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital for a gruesome murder in the 1950s,” will play into the upcoming episodes.
The increasingly intense teasers show how the series has grown and matured since its debut, which is something Matarazzo (Dusty) is “pretty stoked” about. “I think the tone [has] definitely matured for sure, and I think they do that on purpose because I think they want their show to mature with their kids,” the actor explained to ET, referring to creators, Matt and Ross.
He added, “As we are growing older as people, we have to grow older as characters. They’re confronted by this issue, but they embrace it, and they use it to their advantage.”
Meanwhile, producer and director Shawn Levy said that fans can expect “a season that is wildly more epic than the first three,” which has only been hinted at in the teasers. Keery (Steve) added that the long-awaited episodes will be “worth the wait.”
