Netflix Releases Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer And There’s A Lot Going On In Hawkins

It feels like we’ve been talking about Season 4 of Stranger Things for way too long, but we’re finally getting closer to reuniting with Eleven, Mike, Lucas, Will, and Dustin. Netflix has finally released a new teaser trailer for the new season, and from the looks of things, there’s been some pretty creepy stuff going on Hawkins.

  1. Production on Season 4 was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. As was the case for most movies and TV shows, Stranger Things was forced to postpone production due to COVID-19. However, they were finally able to get going again and began filming earlier this year. Finally!
  2. This season is going to be darker than any of the others. According to an interview with Total Film, Joe Keery, who plays Steve Harrington, promised that fans wouldn’t be disappointed by the new episodes and that they’re going to get pretty scary. “I think that this year – and I know I say this every single year – but this is definitely going to be a lot scarier than prior years because last year was pretty dark.” He added: “Oh man, it’s pretty amazing – the Duffer brothers have really done it again.” I can’t wait!
  3. The trailer takes place at the Hawkins National Laboratory. The trailer shows a bunch of small kids playing before a man called “Papa” comes in to tell them that he has “something planned for” them in a way that sounds like nothing good is in store. Next, the camera pans to a door marked “11” and a voice asks, “Eleven, are you listening?” before her eyes open in close-up.  What’s going on here?!
  4. Sadly, it’s still unclear when Season 4 will be hitting our screens. While fans are desperate for another installment of Stranger Things, the likelihood that we’ll get it before the end of this year may be pretty slim. I suppose in the meantime that gives us plenty of opportunity to keep watching the trailer and trying to figure out what’s going on!
