Netflix dropped the new teaser trailer for hit sci-fi horror series Stranger Things’ 4th season on YouTube on Thursday, May 6.
The one-minute video teaser was also shared on Twitter with the caption, “Eleven, are you listening?”
The video teases the rumored return of Matthew Modine’s Dr. Martin Brenner who runs the Hawkins National Laboratory. This is where Eleven (played by Millie Bobby Brown), along with other children with psychokinetic abilities, were raised, trained, and experimented on by him.
The teaser ends when the camera zooms in front of a door with the number 11 on it. Later on, Dr. Brenner asks “Are you listening, Eleven?,” as the imprisoned Eleven jolts awake.
Stranger Things season 4 is yet to release a premiere date. It was only a month into production when the coronavirus outbreak first hit the US in March 2020, causing a halt in movie and film productions around the country.
The new season’s first teaser trailer premiered on February 14, 2020, revealing that Chief Jim Hopper (played by David Harbour) is alive, despite fans speculating the character’s death in season 3.
“We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway – and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper,” show creators the Duffer brothers said in a statement last February 2020.
“Although it’s not all good news for our ‘American,’ he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other. Meanwhile, back in the States, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything,” they added.
The beloved Stranger Things series has garnered popularity and numerous awards since its premiere on Netflix in 2016. Its awards include the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Show, and Peabody Award for Entertainment.
The show also stars Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers), Cara Buono (Karen Wheeler), and Natalie Dyer (Nancy Wheeler). – with reports from Aloe Ynion/Rappler.com
