Could this poster contain a big secret about Stranger Things season 5?

If you've been on Creative Bloq at any point in the last month, you may have noticed that we're a little bit obsessed with Stranger Things – and for a good reason. The Netflix hit has turned the internet upside down with its gripping storyline, retro aesthetic and brilliant promotional campaigns. And now, fans have realised that one particular poster has so much more to it than we first imagined. 

Fans on TikTok have spotted a fascinating Easter Egg in the ST4 character posters and the theories about it are blowing my mind. As you can see, each character is positioned on the posters above the building they feature in for most of the show. (for example, Hopper and Joy's posters feature the Russian prison). However, Karen Wheeler's poster (yep, Mike's mum) has left fans with some serious questions. (If you still haven't caught up on season four yet, then check out the best TVs for a truly immersive, strange experience).
