Speaking of taking things up a notch in the fourth season, Matarazzo told ET:

I think we kind of have to. I think what the goal for the boys, for [show creators Matt and Ross Duffer], to do is to make sure that the bar is raised every single season, but it’s raised not too much to a point at which we couldn’t be able to exceed or match what we’ve done prior.

The actor, who plays Dustin Henderson on the hit show, went on to brand the show’s writers Matt and Ross Duffer as passionate and determined people, who are super eager to elevate their previous level.

It’s definitely, I think the tone is definitely matured for sure, and I think they do that on purpose because I think they want their show to mature with their kids. As we are growing older as people, we have to grow older as characters. They’re confronted by this issue, but they embrace it, and they use it to their advantage. And they don’t freak out when we get taller or when our voices drop or anything like that.

He went on to add the writers use all of the supposed challenges as ammo for their writing. The actor was surprised by just how amazing they are and what they’re capable of. He says it’s a pleasure to work with them, and it has always been that way.

Although plot points about the new season have been provided in scarcity, Matarazzo said at the beginning of the year that Season 4 is the spookiest in the entire series so far, which he loves because it’s incredibly fun to shoot.
