Stranger Things writers have continued to tease fans on social media about the show’s highly anticipated fourth season – and we’re certainly eager.

Although they haven’t given anything in particular away, the writers chose to share a cryptic post that has sent lovers of the show into a flurry.

Taking to Twitter, the official Stranger Things account shared a still from the final episode of the third season, captioning the post: ‘Are the kids alright?’

It’s certainly got a lot of people wondering, as one questioned: ‘What does this mean?’

‘Well I see something comin our way,’ another curious fan responded. While another wrote: ‘Gosh I hope so, if any of them die I’m out.’

Don’t expect spoilers for upcoming episodes anytime soon however – when one user asked if the account was willing to share any, they simply responded: ‘I can. But do I want to?’

Such a tease.

It comes after David Harbour previously confirmed that season 4 will finally explore the backstory of his character, Jim Hopper.

‘In season two, Eleven [Millie Bobby Brown] discovers five boxes, one of which has Brenner’s stuff from Hawkins Lab, one of which says “Dad”, and one of which says “Vietnam”, and one says “New York,”’ he explained during a recent appearance at Liverpool Comic Con.

‘So there are these three things that we’ve established in the season that if we don’t pay off, it means that they’re bad writers. Stranger Things 4 trailer confirms Hopper is alive Play Video Loaded: 0% 0:00Progress: 0% PlayMute Current Time0:00 / Duration Time0:50 Fullscreen

‘And the Duffer brothers are very good writers. So I know specifically that in season four we will give you a big, huge reveal about Hopper’s backstory.’

He added: ‘I’m so excited about revealing this aspect of the character.’

The first trailer for the forthcoming season of the sci-fi series also confirmed that Jim was alive and well – and he’s ‘The American’.

Unfortunately, Netflix had previously announced back in April that production on the show had been put on hold until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

David also told followers during an Instagram Q&A that season four was ‘supposed to come out early next year [2021]’, but as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, it is ‘likely to be pushed back’.

Well, we’ll be waiting with open arms whenever the series does return.
