Stranger Things unveils first look Photos at season 4 and confirms 2022 release date

Netflix has finally revealed its first proper look at Stranger Things’ long-awaited 4th season.

The streaming service released a voiceover-heavy promo earlier this year, teasing the return of Matthew Modine’s Martin Brenner, the villainous scientist who raised Eleven and several other test subjects and was indirectly responsible for unleashing the dreaded demogorgons upon Hawkins, Indiana.

It didn’t offer much to look at beyond clinical white walls and surgical gown-wearing children, however.

Fortunately, the sci-fi drama’s latest trailer combines old footage with new clips from the eagerly-anticipated next chapter.

In it, you can see Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) being restrained by some authoritative-looking types, a puffer jacket-sporting Jim Hopper (Black Widow’s David Harbour) wielding a flamethrower, and Steve (Joe Keery), Robin (Maya Hawke), Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and co grimacing at something off-screen in a shadowy cabin.

While the first two seasons of Stranger Things took place in autumn and winter, its third instalment – which saw Eleven and co stop a Mind Flayer-possessed Billy from taking over the town, while also thwarting a sinister Russian agency from re-opening the portal to the Upside Down – took place in the summer of 1985.

The chapter concluded with Eleven tagging along with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) and sons Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) and Will (Noah Schnapp), as they moved away to start fresh in the wake of Hopper’s supposed death. None of the Byers are seen in the teaser, which begs the question: Did Eleven get separated from them, and if so, how?

The show’s last two chapters’ aesthetics coincided with the season they aired in, so it seems logical to assume that the follow-up will do the same.

The trailer only confirms that “the global phenomenon” will return in 2022, though. Once it singles out a specific date, it will be easier to make an educated guess.

Stranger Things seasons 1-3 are now streaming on Netflix.
