‘Stranger Things’ Fans Already Have Some A+ Theories About What ‘We’re Not in Hawkins Anymore’ Means

Stranger Things Fan Theories About Were Not in Hawkins Anymore


Well… that certainly didn’t take very long. No sooner did Netflix drop their teaser announcement confirming what we all already assumed, that there will be a fourth season of Stranger Things, than did the internet come up with a whole slew of excellent fan theories about it.

Specifically, fan theories about what the whole “We’re not in Hawkins anymore” in the teaser means and/or is referring to with regard to season four.

First off, that phrase is an obvious homage – one of the Duffer Brothers’ favorite things to do – to The Wizard of Oz and the phrase “We’re not in Kansas anymore.”

That being said, does it refer to the fact that season four of Stranger Things will take place in Russia?

That would tie into several previous fan theories that have been put forth already…

Eleven becomes the villain in the fourth season
Eleven causes the Chernobyl disaster in season four
Chief Hopper is “The American”
Billy is “The American”
Dr. Brenner is “The American”

Granted, it could just be as simple as what we already know: Eleven and the Byers family moved out of Hawkins. But nah… that would be far too boring, right?

How about we go to the experts for some better alternative meanings and perhaps a consensus. And by experts, I of course mean Twitter.
