Stranger Things Season 4 Gets 2022 Premiere, Trippy New Trailer

at .

We have some bad news, Stranger Things fanatics.

The long-delayed fourth season will not see the light of day this year.

Netflix on Friday dropped a new teaser trailer for the global phenomenon that confirmed what many expected.

Eleven in Danger on Stranger Things

The series will return sometime in 2022.

Stranger Things Season 3 dropped over two years ago, so it's unfortunate we have to wait so long for fresh episodes.

But the series somehow always manages to exceed expectations, and the long wait should hopefully result in the show remaining in its fine form.

With the pandemic, a delay was inevitable, but it doesn't make it any less tough.

Shawn Levy, an Executive Producer on the series, recently opened up to Collider about the fourth season -- and beyond.

"I have the end in sight. The [Duffer] brothers have the end in sight," he said, fueling the speculation that the show will wrap after its fifth season.

If it was ending after Season 4, Netflix would have already announced it, so a fifth -- and final -- season seems to be in the cards.

"There is a plan and that too will be shared not quite as soon as a sense of when season four is coming out, but soon enough. I can say this."

"No one's making it up as we go along, and there is an endgame, if you will."

It's good to know a plan is in place, we guess.

The teaser shows a mix of old and new footage, and it looks as great as you would expect.

One thing we get to see is Eleven seemingly being held by what looks to be agents.

We've had shadowy figures on the show since the beginning, and with the recent trailer showing flashbacks to the past, it could hint that she will be kidnapped.

Stranger Things Quotes

Dear Billy, I don't know if you can even hear this. Two years ago, I would have said, 'That's ridiculous, impossible.' "But that was before I found out about alternate dimensions and monsters, so... I'm just going to stop assuming that I know anything. So much has happened since you left. Your dad was a total mess. He and my mom started getting into fights. Bad fights. I don't think he could stand being here without you. So he left. And he didn't leave Mom much. She's taken an extra job, and we moved to that lovely trailer park off Kerley. Basically, ever since you left, everything's been... A total disaster. And the worst part is, I can't tell anyone why you're gone. I can't tell them that you saved El's life. That you saved my life. I play that moment back in my head all the time. And sometimes I imagine myself running to you, pulling you away. I imagine that if I had, that you would still be here. And everything would be... ( sobs ) ...everything would be right again. I imagine that we... That we could've become friends. Good friends, like... like a real brother and sister. And I know that's stupid. You hated me.I hated you. But I thought that maybe... Maybe we could try again. But that's not what happened. I just... I stood there and I watched. For a while, I tried to be happy. Normal. But I... I think that maybe a part of me died that day too. And I haven't told anyone this. I... I just can't. But I had to tell you. Before it's too late. If you can even hear this. I really hope that you can. I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry, Billy. Love, your shitty little sister, Max.
