Robert Englund Joins ‘Stranger Things S4’

Probably not a popular opinion here but – it was really feeling to me that the hit Netflix series Stranger Things was in need of some type of jump start – and this news might well be the perfect jolt.

Horror icon Robert Englund has joined the cast for Season Four of the streaming service stand out – and that is all good as far as this horror fan is concerned.

Englund will portray Victor Creel, a baddie who has been imprisoned in a mental hospital since the 1950s.

Nothing is known about how large a role this might be for Englund but – any onscreen time we can get with the legend is better than none at all. Story-wise – we know that Hopper is alive but imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other – while back in the states” a new horror is beginning to surface, something long-buried, something that connects everything….”

So Englund’s involvement officially piques my interest in the fourth excursion with this group – hoping just not for stranger things but – good things.
