Hype surrounding Stranger Things – Season 4 grows with each new leak, actor comments, and teaser trailers. The popular Netflix TV show is currently in the middle of filming, so it will be some time before the next chapter lands on the TV screens.
As we await the official release date and trailer, it looks like the Stranger Things marketing team wants to hit fans into an even bigger frenzy. How so? Well, the new Stranger Things 4 player fell overnight – and that points to a big announcement that will happen later today (i.e. May 6th).
The nearly two-minute video was broadcast on the official Stranger Things channel on Wednesday, May 5, and concerns the control room at Hawkins National Laboratory. Seven static TVs are shown at the start of the video, while some opera music plays in the background.
As the Tiger repeats, the televisions flicker alive and show a few seconds of material. The center display comes first, but it looks nothing more than a seemingly locked door handle. Other excerpts seem to have a play area, various toys, and other rooms.
With each new TV flicker, the pictures start to get more creepy. The blood appears in the chess set, the magic in the 8-ball, and and the death set. When the last toy is shown, the video ends abruptly.
Check out the teaser below and read an analysis of what it all means:
Will we receive a Stranger Things season 4 trailer or release date announcement?
There are two major takeaways about Tis, and based on other comments and speculation that makes online tours, we’re pretty sure how we’ve interpreted it.
Let’s look at the material first. Most flickering TV images include rainbow patterns on the walls. For Stranger Things fans, it’s pretty clear what this location is – it’s the Rainbow Room, which served as a play area for eleven, for Kali and other children’s test sites at Hawkins National Laboratory.
TV screens are screens for plant surveillance cameras that have been used by Martin Brenner, director of Hawkins National Laboratory, and other researchers to keep tabs on children. Meanwhile, Blood is likely to recall the events of Season 1 when Demogorgon attacked the facility and ostensibly killed Brenner and other investigators.
Alternatively, it could refer to Terry’s intrusion into the lab. For those in need of a reminder, Terry Ives is the mother of Jane — aka Eleven — who broke into the facility in an attempt to save her daughter in 1974. She traveled to the rainbow room before she was caught by lab guards. blood There may have been Terry in the Rainbow Room since the encounter occurred.
What does this mean for season 4? We could get more feedback for the 1970s, replacing any gaps in the lab timeline that we don’t have yet. That could contains more information on eleven, Kali, and other children-related topics that may be related to the 4 plot of the season.
If we don’t get the revelations, eleven and some other Hawkins kids can break into the lab to try to put together the main events that might be part of through 4.
As for our second big announcement, it’s in the description of the YouTube video. The caption reads: “Due to technical difficulties, Hawkins National Laboratory has been closed for the time being. Will be back tomorrow at 9:00 AM ET.”
This can only mean one thing – we get a release date notice or an official trailer (with a release date notice). You might think it’s wild speculation for us, but the Stranger Things writing team has also hinted strongly on Twitter.
See the tweet below that strongly suggests that we get some great news later today:
Given that almost two years have passed since the release of Stranger Things Season 3, fans desperately miss all the official news from Season 4. It would be the wrong step for the creative team if today’s announcement isn’t one of our two suggestions above.
Fans have been expressing their frustration at the lack of news for some time, and anything other than a new trailer or release date would announce certainly makes the crowd feel hurt or even angry.
We don’t have much to wait any longer for any supposed announcement to come anyway. We will be watching all Stranger Things channels at 9.00 ET (6AM PT and 14PM BST) for drops and will deal with it here as soon as it arrives.
