In an era of change and uncertainty, it's hard to know what to rely on.

But while we suffer through the madness of the 2020 election this coming year, we can be comforted by knowing that a new season of Stranger Things will be coming our way, supplying us with all the cozy '80s nostalgia and flickering Christmas lights that our hearts desire.

The teaser trailer for the show's fourth season just dropped, and it seems like Hawkins won't be the setting—though it provides few clues as to where our erstwhile heroes and heroines will end up. At the end of Season 3, Will's family (with Eleven in tow) left Hawkins, but one would imagine that given the Byers family's track record, they won't be able to evade the Upside Down for long.

The Season 4 trailer hints at a dramatic, action-packed future for Mike and his comrades. In it, the show's iconic logo takes the form of a decaying neon sign that eventually flares out and fades into footage of infected-looking woods.

Season 3 certainly left us with plenty of questions. Is Hopper alive? Will Joyce and Hopper ever get together? What role will Russia play? Will Season 4 take place in Russia? If Russian interference wasn't enough to get Trump impeached, will the Ukraine incident do the trick?

Regardless of what happens, it's only a matter of time before we can all escape into the blissful, spooky, comforting sci-fi world of Stranger Things once again.

Is “Hamilton” Sexist?

The hit musical will drop on Disney+ July 3rd.

Lin Manuel-Miranda's Hamilton has taken the theater world by storm since its 2015 Broadway premiere.

A hip-hop musical about America's founding fathers doesn't sound immediately appealing, but Manuel-Miranda's brilliant song writing and diverse casting not only captured the attention of audiences, but proved that major change is possible within an art form as encumbered by traditions as musical theater.

Stranger Things Season 3 Trailer: Eleven Fights Back

Instead of locking the monster out, it seems that Eleven trapped it in Hawkins.

In the latest trailer for the third season of Stranger Things, things seem to be more chaotic than ever in Hawkins.

The series seems to be continuing to do what it does best—taking nostalgic, neon-lit images of 1980s suburbia and throwing them under the threat of destruction from a mysterious, otherworldly force. The trailer, however, is almost excessively dramatic. A string-heavy score plays while warehouses and fairgrounds meet impending doom and our favorite gang of bicycle-riding misfits continue to fight the dark forces at work. Other highlights: Max's older brother seemingly gets possessed, Eleven is her typically badass self, Winona Ryder brandishes a knife, and swarms of helicopters hint at a potentially violent and certainly action-packed end.

Stranger Things returns July 4th.
