Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer Takes Us Into Creel House

Stranger Things Season 4 is coming and things are somehow getting weirder.


It's been so long since Stranger Things Season 3 arrived in the summer of 2019. Now, after over two years, we finally have the first trailer for Season 4 of the Netflix original series thanks to the streaming service's Tudum event. You might remember that at the end of Stranger Things Season 3, Hopper (David Harbour) looked to be stuck in a Russian prison where the Demogorgon was also being held captive. Meanwhile, Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown) was rendered powerless and moved away from Hawkins with the Byers family.

Now, Stranger Things is picking up those story threads and introducing a sinister new character in Victor Creel (Robert Englund). It was revealed on the official Stranger Things Twitter account that the new character has been locked in a psychiatric hospital since committing a gruesome crime in the 1950s. Based on the quick look, it seems he killed his family, though the Upside Down may be involved if the flickering lights are any hint. You can see the first look at Creel in action, along with a very important tease about Season 4, below.

We dare you to be upset about Dustin and Steve's friendship still being a focal point of the series in Season 4.

For as highly-anticipated and beloved as Stranger Things is, we still know so little about Season 4. We don't even know if it'll be the final installment of the fan-favorite show. Whatever the case, here's hoping Hopper and the Hawkins gang reunite--or even that the show finds a way to quickly get Eleven and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) back in the same room together. The two professed their love for each other before Eleven left town with the Byers clan at the end of Season 3, leaving their relationship status a bit murky.

Stranger Things Season 4 will hit Netflix. A release date hasn't been announced.
