Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer Breakdown
The Stranger Things Season 4 trailer shows the kids are all grown up. Life seems normal asides from the usual high school life, but they’re being called upon to go to war against the monsters of the Upside Down and perhaps against the boss of the final level.
The trailer continues with a looping version of Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart).” Scenes reveal Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), and Max (Sadie Sink) entering high school. Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Will (Noah Schnapp) are in California and seem to be having their own challenges as the new kids on the block. Max is seen visiting her brother’s grave and writing him a letter.
As the friends navigate through their next chapter in their lives, a new supernatural threat surfaces from the Upside Down, forcing the crew to reunite and confront the new horrors coming to Hawkins.
“A war is coming. Your friends in Hawkins are very much in the eye of a storm,” Dr. Owen (Paul Reiser) says to Eleven warning her about what’s coming. “I don’t know how to say this other than just to say it — without you, we can’t win this war.” Then the title cards say: “Every ending has a beginning.”
The Stranger Things Season 4 trailer reveals Hopper (David Harbour) is alive but not well as he’s imprisoned and forced to fight a Demogorgon with a group of fellow inmates. There are explosions, running, yelling, flying demogorgons, Eleven’s bloody nose, and somebody having a guitar solo on top of an old RV in the Upside Down. At one point, Max appears to be levitating above Billy’s grave
The final seconds of the new Stranger Things Season 4 trailer ends with a close look at what appears to be the big bad of the upcoming season — a human-Demogorgon hybrid that can speak. But let’s not forget about the guitar riffs and somebody having a guitar solo on top of an old RV in the Upside Down.
Stranger Things Season 4 will be split into two parts. Volume 1 premieres this May 27th and Volume 2 later this summer. Netflix also has confirmed a fifth and final season of the hit show.
