The fourth season of Stranger Things will premiere on May 27, and Netflix has released the first eight minutes as a teaser for dedicated fans of the dark and exciting series.
Netflix also announced the episode count for each of the season’s two volumes: the first volume, which will launch next week, will contain seven episodes, while the second volume, which will air on July 1, will contain two episodes.
The season will pick up six months after the Battle of Starcourt, which brought disaster and fear to Hawkins. The group of friends is separated for the first time as a result of the aftermath, and negotiating the complexity of high school has not made matters any simpler.
At this time of greatest vulnerability, a new and horrific supernatural menace emerges, posing a gruesome puzzle that, if answered, could put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.
