The official Stranger Things Season 4 trailer has landed today, as part of Stranger Things Day on Netflix. The trailer shows that Eleven is now living in California rather than Indiana, but with spring break nearing, Eleven is excited to be with Mike again. However, things won’t go smoothly, as you would expect in Hawkins.
Speaking of Hawkins, clearly, the show is not going to be all set in California this year. The official Netflix Twitter account was full of Hawkins as part of the announcement.

A combination of pandemic slowdowns, and the show getting bigger in scale, led to a long production run after delays mostly due to COVID. The new season will arrive two years after the last season aired.
Earlier in the year the show’s producers, the Duffer Brothers, announced a few details about the plot for season 4:
“We’re excited to officially announce that production for Stranger Things 4 is now underway—and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper! Although it’s not all good news for our “American”; [Hopper] is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, Russia, where he will face dangers both human… and other. Meanwhile, back in the States, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything…”
Stranger Things has attracted record viewership on Netflix has received critical acclaim including 39 Primetime Emmy Award nominations and six wins, four Golden Globe Award nominations, a British Academy Television Award nomination, two Directors Guild of America Award nominations, three Writers Guild of America Award nominations, and three Grammy Award nominations.
Star David Harbour said in an interview in 2021 that this season, season 4, would set up the shows’ ending in season 5 and after that Stranger Things will be all done.
