The creators of Stranger Things dropped a mind-blowing trailer teasing new villains for Season 4 on Tuesday, April 12, 2022.
The opening scene captures a pensive monologue delivered by a person or entity blessed with a throaty, positively spine-chilling voice. "You have broken everything," it declares as the camera pans across a dismal underground location.
Does Max have powers in 'Stranger Things' Season 4?
Featuring a remastered version of "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)," the electrifying tune by Journey, the new trailer for Season 4 of Stranger Things teases complex plotlines more or less simultaneously unfolding in a grimmer than grim Russian prison, sunny California, and of course, in Hawkins, Ind. The trailer shows Billy Hargrove's (Dacre Montgomery) tombstone, a harrowing interrogation, a helicopter chase, and other occurrences.
Plus, Max seems to have powers now.
"Max levitating will haunt my waking days (until the release date)," tweeted @closedbye.
"[Not] being funny, right, but if Max or Steve die in Season 4 of Stranger Things, you can catch me sleeping in the road, xoxo," tweeted @perimowaves.
"Stranger Things, you better get away from Max," tweeted @zoyalaisgf.
Unlike Max, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) definitely does not have powers in the trailer for Season 4 of 'Stranger Things.'
As loyal viewers of Stranger Things recall, Eleven lost her powers during the battle at the Starcourt Mall captured in the Season 3 finale. Eleven burns up the last of her energy to get the Mind Flayer out of her leg.
Season 4 is bound to mark an interesting turn of events. In the trailer, Eleven wears a white vest. Her head is shaved. Behind her are three soldiers. At 2:40, the soldiers are blasted upward. Sparks are flying. What looks like the inside of an airplane is on the cusp of exploding.
There's bound to be a smorgasbord of new villains in Season 4 of 'Stranger Things.'
A new villain emerges at the tail end of the newly released trailer. With its bare skull, indented skin, and spider-like legs, the new baddie is super creepy.
But don't worry. It gets worse. A gray sweater-clad man who had his eyes gauged out appears at the 2:44 mark of the trailer. This is Victor Creel (Robert Englund). A new character, Victor Creel is described as a murderer who now delights the patients of the Pennhurst Mental Hospital with his undoubtedly petrifying presence.
Season 4, Part 1 of Stranger Things arrives on Netflix on Friday, May 27, 2022.
