Stranger Things 4 has gotten yet one more mysterious teaser trailer, the newest in a collection of clips selling the upcoming fourth collection of Netflix’s flagship supernatural drama.
We open with a voiceover of Eleven writing a letter to Mike, trying ahead to spring break when she will get to see him once more. She describes how a lot she likes college and has made a number of pals (though we truly see different youngsters being imply to her). We then get just a few fast cuts of a curler rink, Eleven watching skaters and searching upset with some creepy music taking part in, somebody capturing via home windows, Joyce taking a look at a creepy doll, authorities thugs restraining Eleven, helicopters, explosions, and a dial being turned up (however we minimize away earlier than we are able to see if it goes to eleven).
The new trailer, titled “Welcome to California,” is the fourth of Netflix’s teasers, which the corporate has been steadily counting off in its YouTube descriptions since February 2020. To date, we’ve had teaser 001 (“From Russia With Love…” promising the return of a fan-favorite character), teaser 002 (“Eleven, Are You Listening?” diving into Eleven’s darkish previous), and teaser 003 (“The Creel House,” revealing a creepy new location). Mixed with the opposite three teasers, it appears clear that the new season is seeking to increase its setting far past the city of Hawkins, Indiana within the coming season.
At present’s new trailer is listed as 004/004, which might hopefully point out that it’ll be the ultimate of the smaller teasers for the collection that Netflix is doing forward of a correct, full-length trailer someday sooner or later. Additionally absent from the information at the moment is a agency launch date: to date, Netflix has simply mentioned that it’ll be releasing the collection someday in 2022.
The new bulletins come as a part of Netflix’s celebration of “Stranger Things Day,” which is supposed to “commemorate” the in-universe date of November sixth, 1983 — the day that Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) first disappeared into the darkish Upside-Down dimension within the first season of Stranger Things. (If one was feeling much less charitable, one may additionally attribute it to a cynical and barely determined try and attempt to create a cash-in fan vacation for one in every of its hottest style exhibits like Might 4th’s “Star Wars Day.”)
It’s been an extended than regular look forward to the fourth season after Stranger Things 3 — which was launched in July 2019 — because of a months-long delay in manufacturing attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic, which shut down filming on Stranger Things 4 after simply two weeks in early 2020.
