    Yeah, with so many other pop culture references in the show, I'm pretty sure that's probably taken from the X-Men comics.
    I'm curious what the significance of it will be to the story. Could they be introducing some kind Upside Down related secret society? Or maybe it's just what the characters start calling themselves now?

    Turns out the simplest explanation was the correct one!

    I'm still hoping we'll get some flashback of Hopper in the Upside Doen before getting captured by the Russians (I'm still sticking to that particular theory).

    Even though it was discounted here, I'm also still hoping Brenner will return at some point.

    I think we all knew he would be back right?

    Wow, I wasn't expecting to get an answer on that until the actual start of the season.
    Do we know if there was any overlap between this and when he was filming Hellboy?
    I was just wondering if we might get some episodes without him.

    Sure, but it's good to know for certain and they weren't going to continue being elusive about it like other shows and films have been.

    Surprising absolutely no one...

    I'm just glad they got it out of the way immediately instead of trying to drag it out and be secretive about something so obvious.

    The article on IGN also includes a little tease about the Season from the Duffer Bros.

    Agreed. Hopper is one of the true anchors of the show, so it was doubtful they would kill him off.

    I continue to be impressed by the Duffer Bros sense of class--they know their tropes and don't underestimate the audience. We knew that he would be back so why keep it a secret?

    Regarding filming, the way these series are done--with everything being written in advance--means that Hopper's role could be filmed even while he was doing other work. Set up all his scenes for whatever time he has available. If he only has a few scenes with the other characters, then he could even still be filming.

    If production is just beginning, then I'm assuming the footage in the teaser was filmed just for it, rather than being an actual scene from one of the episodes.

    I'm happy to report that Variety believes Priah Ferguson (Erica Sinclair) will be promoted to series regular for season 4!

    I thought she was already a regular in Season 3?

    Nope, just a reoccurring guest.

    ^ :D

    Hey--the Duffers are just channeling their inner "Dee" from What's Happening! with Erica!

    Well it's not like they have a history of doing that. Quite the opposite in fact since the season 2 trailers were all about how "yes, relax, Eleven is alive!" ;)

    Yes, I had forgotten about Dee, I was thinking a bit Arnold from Diff'rent Strokes or early Tootie from Facts of Life but Dee is spot on but I couldn't put my finger on it.

    I don't hate her but it was maybe laid on a little too thick, hopefully in the next season she sells the drama and threat as well as the funny.
