After months of waiting, we finally have a new look at Stranger Things highly-anticipated fourth season. Prior to the new clip, we had scraps to go on in terms of details and a release date for season four.

All we knew, was that it was happening and that the first episode was titled “Chapter One: The Hellfire Club”.

Stranger Things took the world by storm when its first season dropped in 2016. Since then, it has been a rollercoaster, captivating viewers of all shapes and sizes.

Season three ended on one hell of a cliffhanger and audiences have been clamoring for any sort of detail they can get their hands on.

Most speculation assumed we wouldn’t be getting the next season of Stranger Things until 2021. That is because there was a 20-month gap between the second and third seasons. But thanks to Twitter, we have hope for a 2020 release.

Back in January, the Stranger Things writers took to Twitter. They posted a cryptic tweet that was the year 2020 with the text “we’re not in Hawkins anymore”. Check it out below.

The text matched exactly what was teased back in September. It is most likely a reference to the cliffhanger that season three ended with.

The only other bit of information we had regarding Stranger Things’ fourth season was the name of the first episode. Once again, the writers tweeted a picture giving us a look at the script. It’s titled “Chapter One: The Hellfire Club”.

Many Redditors have posted theories regarding the release date, with a rather savvy fan speculating we’ll have the fourth season on Apr. 03, 2020. They came to this conclusion by analyzing quite a few clues. In the behind-the-scenes set tour of season three there is a drawing of a prisoner with the number 403-X on his uniform. 403 is also the number of the hospital room where Nancy visited Mrs. Driscoll. Watch the video below.

An April release date also makes sense as the fourth season is alleged to be set in 1986—the year of the Chernobyl disaster which happened in April. Other fan theories speculate that the events of Stranger Things will play a role in how that bit of history turns out.

Well, we finally have confirmation that one character is definitely not in Hawkins anymore. A new teaser posted to Twitter shows Jim Hopper in  Russia. The tweet reads ” From Russia with love…” We see what appears to be a Russian prison camp with guards watching prisoners build a railroad in the depths of winter. The very end of the clip, one of the prisoners takes off his hat and we see Hopper. Check out the video below.

One interesting detail appears very briefly. Games Of Thrones actor Tom Wlaschiha or Jaqen H’ghar appears around the 0:27 mark.

Fans are already freaking out over the new video. Especially because most believed Hopper was dead after the season three finale. One, in particular, is quite amusing, the Official Netflix You account replied.

Officially speaking with TVLine, the Duffer Brothers spoke about what is in store for our beloved characters.

“We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway — and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper!” the Duffer Brothers said. “Although it’s not all good news for our ‘American’; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, 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. Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime, pray for the American.”

Currently, season four of Stranger Things still has no official release date. Hopefully, we’ll get one soon. Tell us how excited you are in the comments below!
