Finally, Netflix released the first trailer for the long-awaited fourth season of Stranger Things. The trailer shows the aftermath of Billy's death and what happens to the Byers family after they move away from Hawkins. I think I speak for everyone when I say this trailer looks absolutely epic! Check it out for yourself below:
The end of the trailer reiterates when volumes one and two will release this year. Volume one of Stranger Things drops on May 27 and volume two comes on July 1.
First Look At Stranger Things Season 4
This trailer jams a lot into about three minutes. We see everything from Max mourning Billy's death, even if he was kind of an ass, to Hopper! Yes, Hopper is alive and well, well he's alive. It looks like he's in captivity and it's most likely the Russian soldiers detaining him.
One of the biggest speed bumps our favorite and frankly, quite terrifying teenager, Eleven, will face is fighting whatever comes next from the Upside-Down without her powers.
In all likelihood, she will regain her powers and kick some major monster ass throughout the season as she usually does. But this time it definitely feels different and she might end up making the ultimate sacrifice to save Mike and the others.
We also get a great first look at Robert Englund, who joins the cast of Stranger Things for the first time. We don't know exactly who Victor Creel is, but it certainly sounds like him doing the voice over and he doesn't sound very friendly.
Lastly, there is a new monster and it's completely terrifying. This has to be the real "Big-Bad" of Stranger Things. This enemy is likely behind everything that's happened to the kids and the town of Hawkins. Whatever this creature is, it embodies power and terror. It has the look of the other monsters and this leader likely creates them in his own image. But it also has a human-like feel to it.
Could this creature be just a human that was experimented on? It's possible, but I think the overwhelming possibility is the monster is the ruler of the Upside-Down. Whatever lies beyond the realm that we know on Earth has only been shown briefly in Stranger Things. Season 4 will take us to a new level and see a different side of this story than we ever have before.
