Fans have been eagerly awaiting the new season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” but the wait is nearly over with the first half of the season premiering on May 27th. To whet your appetite, Netflix has shared the first eight minutes of the season four premiere. The clip gives us a dark glimpse into Eleven’s (Milly Bobby Brown) past growing up in the lab run by Dr. Brenner (Matthew Bodine).
In the new season, “It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.”
The ensemble cast of the hit series includes Millie Bobby Brown, Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Sadie Sink, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, Cara Buono, Priah Ferguson, and Brett Gelman.
Set to premiere in two parts, the first half of the season will arrive on May 27th with the second half premiering on July 1st. It’s been reported that the episodes will have a much longer run time than the previous seasons.
