Here Are the ‘Stranger Things’ Filming Locations

Stranger Things 4 planning session

Stranger Things season 4 just wrapped up on Netflix on July 1, 2022, and for the first time, it branched out a bit further than Hawkins, Indiana. Since its release in 2016, Stranger Things has predominantly been set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. On the surface, it’s a quiet, quaint little town. However, the peace has been disturbed by the presence of Hawkins National Laboratory. The lab was operated by the U.S. Department of Energy and grew out of the scientific endeavors of World War II.

At some point, though, the lab started Project MKUltra, in which Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) began conducting experiments on children to make them telekinetic. One test subject, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), used her powers and accidentally opened a Gate to the Upside Down. Ever since then, Hawkins has been plagued by the Upside Down, with creatures such as Demogorgons and the Mind Flayer making their way through Gates.
