We take a look at the brand new Stranger Things Season 4 Vol. 1 trailer. Premiering on May 27th
Since its premiere in 2016 Stranger Things has been one of Netflix’s greatest hit shows. Season 3 alone had logged in over 600 million user viewer hours of the hit series and in the nearly decade-long history of the network’s original programming, the show’s topped almost every media outlets MUST WATCH lists in the modern era.
Stranger Things has surprisingly lasted for over six years on Netflix. With three seasons–along with a fourth upcoming season that’s being split in two–and a sea of Stranger Fans and even Stranger Conventions having propped up the series, the show has become one of the most talked-about and beloved shows of recent history, and arguably, of all-time.
This 1980s homage to murder mysteries and early science-fiction blockbusters has seen its cast grow up from Dungeons and Dragons-obsessed kids to young adults trying to stop the mind flayer from destroying the universe. We’ve seen the cast grow up in front of our very eyes. It’s launched the careers of almost all of its actors including Millie Bobby Brown, David Harbour, Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Sadie Sink, and Maya Hawke.
This is why it’s sad but exciting to see it end. Taking place six months after the Battle of Starcourt mall in the season 3 finale, the story will take place in the aftermath of what’s happened to the new separated group while they navigate the awkward moments of high school. It’s here, where a new Mindflayer–featured in the trailer below–presents an upcoming threat. One that potentially might end it all, unless the group can reunite to put a stop to it…
But it all comes down to a now de-powered Eleven.
The first volume of episodes will launch on May 27th. The second volume launches on July 1st.
