The wait may be taking forever, but it seems that Stranger Things fans are about to get their awaited reunion with the Hawkins gang anytime soon. The hugely popular Netflix series has just unveiled the second trailer for its upcoming fourth season on Thursday, May 6.
The spookish short clip takes fans back to the Hawkins National Laboratory, where Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) grew up being experimented on by Dr. Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine). He is heard telling a group of children that he has something “very special” planned for them before the perspective shifts to a door labeled “11” and the menacing scientist asks, “Eleven, are you listening?”
According to reports, the new season will presumably dig deeper into Eleven’s origins and potentially introduce other supernatural characters, similar to previous seasons.
The new trailer comes two years after Stranger Things 3 premiered on July 4, 2019, and a year since Season 4’s first trailer was released on February 14, 2020. According to Screen Rant, filming was supposed to begin in early 2020 but was put on hold due to the pandemic. Production is reportedly ongoing as of this time, with leaked photos of the set making the rounds online in the past months.
Although Netflix has yet to announce the release date of Stranger Things 4, star Finn Wolfhard previously revealed in a Fanmio video that he is not expecting it to be aired until “some time” in 2022. The release of its latest trailer, however, has got fans talking that hopefully, the series would get back to regular programming within 2021.
