This is not a drill! The first ever look at Season 4 of Stranger Things has arrived in the form of a short teaser, and it's giving the fans what they want—confirmation their favorite sheriff is still with us.
The Netflix series' official Twitter account shared the video this morning in honor of Valentine's Day, writing, "From Russia with love…" The clip begins in a wintry location, presumably in Russia, with men doing physical labor outside. Just as the video is about to end (and fans are about to lose their patience), one person takes off his hat to reveal it's none other than Jim Hopper! And he's rocking quite a different look.
Fans, understandably, are freaking out. Season 3 of the fan-favorite show concluded with Hopper sacrificing himself in order to close the Upside Down, and although we never got to actually see his body, the rest of the Hawkins gang treated the situation as if he really did die. The Byers even adopted Eleven and moved out of the Indiana town following the tragedy.
The teaser tweet blew up immediately, with users replying with things such as, "DID YOU GUYS REALLY JUST DROP THIS ON US LIKE THAT," "HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY INDEED!," and "HOW DARE YOU I WAS NOT MENTALLY PREPARED." Same, seriously. We all knew he'd be back, but this just makes it real.
We still don't have a release date for Season 4 yet, but right now, this reveal is enough for us.
