When does Stranger Things Season 4: Part 2 come out? Today. And we're not ready.

*SPOILER ALERT: This contains spoilers for Stranger Things Season 4: Part 1. So, open another tab, watch it, then come back.*

If Stranger Things will do one thing, it’s resurrect an 80s song and introduce a whole new generation to its wonders.

When the first installment of the Netflix hit show’s fourth season dropped, the stakes were high. Each season has to live up to the last and — with years having passed between the seasons — would anyone even tune in?

But tune in they did. In droves. Suddenly the internet was bombarded with memes about Will’s bob, the rapidly aging teen characters, and … the soundtrack?

"Stranger Things" Releases Season 4 Trailer: Hopper Is Alive?

"Stranger Things" season 4 will take viewers to a frigid Russian wasteland.

The third season of Stranger Things ended on a cliffhanger, and fans have spent the past year wondering whether beloved, occasionally brutish, local sheriff Jim Hopper was dead or alive.

Today, the trailer for Season 4 was released, and it seems that the show decided to reveal that Hopper is alive, though not exactly well—he seems to be stuck in some kind of wintry Russian hellscape, slaving away on a chain gang.

"We're excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway—and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper!" announced the Duffer Brothers. "Although it's not all good news for our 'American'; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human…and other. Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything….

"Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime — pray for the American."

It's unclear as to why the show decided to reveal that Hopper is alive after making everybody wait for so long, but on the other hand, at least Eleven didn't actually lose her primary father figure.

There are moments in life when all the balance and normalcy we take for granted are turned on their head by the introduction of one uncanny detail.

Perhaps you're putting together a package to ship to your mother for the holidays, but when you reach for a marker, to write her address on the box, what you find in your hand isn't a Sharpie at all, it's a Skerple.

And now it's like the wind has been knocked out of you. Nothing seems to be quite what you thought. Is this a dream? A nightmare? An alternate reality. You reach for your phone so you can apologize to your mother—she won't be receiving that package on time—but you freeze in the moment before you click call, overwhelmed with a dread that whoever answers that call won't be the woman who raised you.
