There’s a lot to look forward to in the upcoming fourth season of stranger things, including the upcoming arrival of horror icon Robert Englund!

In the upcoming fourth season, Robert Englund will take on the role of Victor Creel, a new character who seems poised to play a major role in the season.
Creel House was heavily featured in the run-up to the season, including in a teaser that suggested the house could be a gateway to the Upside Down. With Englund set to play Victor Creel, it will be interesting to see how his character plays into the season.
