However, while most fans of the show were delighted watching the new trailer, some were left complaining about a small detail shared in the caption. Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Wait season four isn't out until 2022?!! I don't understand why it has taken so long for this show to come back on. I mean no one is going to remember or be interested anymore and the kids will be grown."

Another complained: "#StrangerThings isn't returning till 2022. My day's ruined," while a third was left feeling like Netflix could've shared a few more details about the release. "2022 is so far away. Couldn't we at least get the month?" they wrote.

Meanwhile, other fans were left miffed after realising that one main character had been left out of the trailer completely. "As good as this looks, I can't help but be sad by the fact Will wasn't in one second of this. I really hope they don't ignore him again like they did in season three," one said. 

Season four won't land on Netflix until next year much to the disappointment of fans

Someone else speculated that Will's absence could play a part in the storyline: "I feel like that means something. There will be some special story."

The release of the trailer comes after the show's executive producer Shawn Levy hinted that the show could end in just a couple of season's time. Asked by Collider if season five could be the last, he said: "I have the end in sight. The brothers have the end in sight.

"There is a plan and that too will be shared not quite as soon as a sense of when season four is coming out, but soon enough. I can say this. No, one's making it up as we go along and there is an endgame, if you will."

The brothers behind the show, creators Ross and Matt Duffer, have previously stated their intentions to end the show after "four or five seasons".
