The hype for the upcoming fourth season of the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” is real. The first volume of new episodes is set to drop on May 27, 2022. Today, the streaming giant gave fans a titillating preview of what is to come.

It has been six months since the horrifying incident at Starcourt Mall. The citizens of Hawkins have been struggling to make sense of it all and get back on their feet. Just when they thought it was over, a new supernatural force emerged to threaten any possible return to normalcy.

The first three seasons of Stranger Things were a mega-hit for Netflix. Now, the company is struggling to retain subscribers as the streaming landscape becomes more diverse. The company is hoping the launch of this new season will help kickstart a comeback.

The new video released on YouTube shows the full first eight minutes of episode one. The new clip takes a look at Hawkins’ dark past. A familiar face appears and we get a look at the terrible experiments that were being done on children.


Several kids, all with closely-cropped haircuts like Eleven in the first season, can be seen walking the halls of the infamous Hawkins laboratory. In the end, it appears one of them has done something wrong. While nothing is resolved, it is a cliffhanger that will leave viewers wanting more.

Stranger Things 4 Volume 1 drops on May 27. The second set of episodes will be released on July 1. It may not be a full episode, but Stranger Things fans are licking their chops at this new sneak preview. You can check it out below!
