Stranger Things” producer Shawn Levy recently said “Stranger Things” Season 4 would be coming out “soon enough.”

“Soon enough” appears to be next year.

On Friday, “Stranger Things” released a 30-second teaser that revealed the long-anticipated Season 4 will hit Netflix in 2022 — the show didn’t give a specific date.

So the wait continues — it’s been more than two years since “Stranger Things” released Season 3 — but at least fans now have some kind of frame of reference.

The teaser didn’t reveal any plots about the storyline, but rather showed a montage of scenes from Seasons 1-3 and a few shots from the upcoming season.

“Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait,” Levy shared on Twitter Friday morning.

Friday’s teaser marks the third glimpse of Season 4 for fans. The first teaser dropped on Valentine’s Day in 2020, revealing that Hawkins’ Police Chief Jim Hopper was in fact alive and at a prison camp in Russia after it appeared he had died at the end of Season 3.

The second teaser, released in May of this year, showed what appeared to be a flashback at the Hawkins Lab, where Eleven and other children were raised as test subjects by Dr. Martin Brenner, the Deseret News reported.

Both of those teasers indicated that the new season would likely delve more into the storylines of Hopper and Eleven, the Deseret News reported.

  • There’s some fun stuff that we’re doing this season, but it’s also the heaviest dramatic stuff I’ve ever had to do,” actor David Harbour, who plays Hopper, recently told “Entertainment Tonight.” “We get to see a lot of Hopper at his most vulnerable, we’re gonna reveal a lot of backstory points that we’ve only hinted at. ... We’re gonna see a lot of these different threads, and also, we get to see a rebirth of him.”
