Stranger Things is Netflix’s one of the most popular shows, and with its popularity, the streaming giants aren’t done with it just yet. Recently, we the fans learned that the filming for the next season would start soon, which means Netflix wants to release it as soon as possible. The story of Stranger Things is far from over because of how the season 3 ended, and the writers might have plenty of stories to tell us. As we know that Kids are growing fast, which means the Stranger Things might evolve beyond the ’80s in the upcoming seasons.
Season 3 of this show take place in 1985, and we don’t know where the action will take us next. Become of that; the audience realized that the show has a fantastic, hilarious Winona Ryder/Lucas paradox that needs to be explained. We aren’t talking about Lucas Sinclair, played by Caleb McLaughlin in the series, but of Ryder’s Lucas. The actress played the role of Joyce Byers in the Netflix show and made her Hollywood debut in 1986 in Lucas.
Stranger Things Season 4 Paradox
At that time, she was only 15, but her performance caught many eyes in Hollywood because of that she appeared in many things like Bettlejuice (1988) and Edward Scissorhands (1990). There is a high possibility that the 80’s kids, including Joyce’s son Will and his friends, would want to watch these movies. I say this because Stranger Things loves to make amazing pop culture references. What will happen when the kids realize that the young Ryder looks a lot like Joyce, especially given all the paranormal things they’ve witnessed in recent years?
Would they think that there are some connections between Winona and Joyce? One other way to address this is the doppelgangers which do exist in real life. Hopefully, the series would explain it rather than just ignoring it. But this isn’t the first this has happened and many of you will remember that this type of paradox sounds familiar it is because we’ve seen similar ones in a different universe which is Marvel’s MCU, where certain characters happen to look a lot like famous actors from iconic films that are part of the MCU’s own pop culture.
Moreover, Mashable pointed this out to the executive producer of Stranger Things, Shawn Levy but he did say whether real-life Winona has anything to do with the Upside Down. He said: “That’s really funny, and I suppose it’s possible? We’re definitely trying to make the show as quickly as we can. We’re not in control of those things, but we don’t want to bullshit about those things.”
