Stranger Things Season 4 has some pretty huge questions to answer following the 77-minute long finale of season 3. Not to mention the questions that have been going around our head following the “With love, from Russia” clip released over a year ago.
While we hoped some of our questions would be answered in the newest trailer, we seem to have only been left with more. There were some things to learn from the newest teaser trailer that point us in the direction of the story when season 4 finally launches.
In the clip, we're taken to the laboratory where Dr Brenner performed his experiments on children, last seen in flashbacks in seasons one and two. A sinister clock ticks in the background; kids chase toy cars around a rainbow track (remember the rainbow room from season two?); someone's playing chess; a ball tumbles through pins on a pegboard; a Magic Eight Ball says 'signs point to yes'; there's some spooky child laughter; toy bricks; everything's very echoey and lit in the institutional greeny-grey we've come to expect of bad experimental government agencies. The kids all have shaved heads and hospital gowns like Eleven used to in series one.
We're clearly back in time because we see Dr Martin Brenner (from behind, but we would know that grey bouffant anywhere) stalking the corridors, and as Matthew Modine's voice tells the children, "We have something very special planned for you today", the camera zooms ominously in on a door marked '11'. The trailer ends with the voiceover saying, "Eleven? Are you listening?" and young Eleven's eyes suddenly open wide in shock.
WHAT? This definitely got us excited to see what is going to happen in this new season! How much we have to wait until we get our answers is still unsure. There is no official release date as of yet, but it could be anywhere from the end of 2021 and the first half of 2022
