The teaser comes soon after the Netflix original series' various social media accounts updated their profile pictures to be an ominous clock set five minutes till midnight, as seen within the extra-dimensional Upside Down in the teaser. A potential reference to the Cold War, which heavily informed Season 3, the tagline hints that the upcoming season will extend its scope beyond its usual setting of Hawkins, Indiana.
Season 3 began and concluded within the Soviet Union, bringing the paranormal action to the global stage as the Soviets attempted to breach into the Upside Down themselves. With the latest teaser, the two conflicting nations may be staging their own returns to the monster-filled dimension.
Created by the Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Priah Ferguson, Cary Elwes, Jake Busey and Maya Thurman-Hawke. All three seasons are currently available for streaming on Netflix.
