Stranger Things Season 4 Releasing In 2022, New Teaser Trailer Out Now

The next season premieres in 2022, but you can watch a teaser now.


Stranger Things Season 4 will debut on Netflix in 2022, the streaming network has announced, though it did not share a specific date. While we have to wait until sometime next year to watch the fourth season, Netflix put out a new teaser trailer that heralds the events to come.

The video starts with footage from Seasons 1-3 before displaying what appears to be footage from Season 4. This comes after Netflix released a trailer that focused specifically on David Harbour's Hopper character and what he's been up to since we saw him last.

Stranger Things director Shawn Levy recently spoke about why Season 4 is taking so long to come out, and it comes down to the pandemic and the team's bigger creative ambitions.

"It is a kind of perfect storm combination of COVID shutdown, slower pace of filming in COVID protocols and health protocols, which are necessary, and coincidentally we chose Season 4 to be by far--and I mean, by far, far, far--the most ambitious of the seasons," he said.

Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, and Joe Keery are all returning for Season 4, while there are plenty of newcomers, too.
