Netflix has released the first 8 minutes of Stranger Things Season 4

With only a week left until the first part of Season 4 premieres, Netflix has turned the anticipation dial up to 11 by releasing the first 8 minutes of the new season of Stranger Things. Season 4 of Netflix’s hit sci-fi horror series will be broken into two volumes, making this a summer full of Stranger Things. Volume 1 will release next Friday, May 27, 2022, and Volume 2 will release on July 1, 2021. The 8-minute clip below will make the one-week wait seem like an eternity by making viewers want to binge the new episodes even more.

First 8 Minutes of Stranger Things 4

The short but telling clip tells a lot of story in just 8 minutes. What stands out immediately is the quiet. The bright imagery is creepily contrasted by the eerie absence of noise. The scene being shown also takes place in the past, 1979, with Ten. Ten is undergoing some tests, continuing the quiet that has filled the clip so far, that is until loud noises are heard outside of the room. Then the lights strikeout, and the guy who administered the test awakens to the room disheveled, and Ten lying there dead. The test administer continues through the complex, finding more and more dead children. Until finally he comes to one alive.

That lone living child turns out to be Eleven, and her powers seem to have taken over her. It looks like Season 4 will dive deeper into Eleven’s origin. It also seems like there might be a darkness we haven’t yet fully experienced in her character. We’ll just have to wait and find out when Stranger Things 4 Volume 1 releases on Netflix on May 27, 2022.
