Netflix just dropped the new teaser for Stranger Things season 4! The internet is in full sleuth mode trying to find any hints or clues about the new season, including the Stranger Things season 4 release date.
The teaser confirmed the return of Dr. Brenner, played by Matthew Modine, and the exploration of Eleven’s past at the Hawkins National Lab. It also looks like we’re going to meet more people like Eleven and Kali from the lab.
The trailer was only a little bit longer than a minute, but there’s a lot to unpack here. There’s always more than meets the eye when it comes to Stranger Things!
Fans also noticed the caption for the video was “002/004.” Obviously, fans thought that this was the Stranger Things season 4 release date, meaning the new season would drop on Feb. 4, 2022.
When does Stranger Things season 4 come out?
While Stranger Things season 4 looks like it will be coming in 2022, we don’t think those numbers in the caption have anything to do with the release date. As noted by Netflix Life’s Sabrina Reed, the first teaser for Stranger Things season 4 that confirmed Hopper was alive was captioned “001/004.”
This is the second teaser that we’ve seen for Stranger Things season 4, and it’s captioned “002/004.” It seems as though there will be four of these teasers released before the trailer or before the season comes out on Netflix.
Interestingly, the date in question – Feb. 4, 2022 – is also a Friday, which is the day of the week that Netflix adds most of its new shows and movies. So, I mean, there’s a chance that the season could be released on that day, but it’s quite the shot in the dark to make that prediction right now.
We have to assume that Stranger Things season 4 is coming to Netflix at some point in 2022, though. Finn Wolfhard said as much on a Fanmio recently, and production is still happening on the fourth season. We need production to wrap soon if the full season is coming this year. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like production will wrap anytime soon.
So, we’re expecting the new season will arrive on Netflix in spring 2022. That’s the best prediction we could possibly make!
