Last we left the world of Stranger Things, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) was on a journey through her own memories to remember her time with Papa (Matthew Modine) in Hawkins National Laboratory, time when she met One (Jamie Campbell Bower) and sent him to the Upside Down, where he became Vecna (also Campbell Bower).

Although the season got off to a slower start, with its heroes spread out across the world, the first seven episodes of what is ultimately the penultimate season of Netflix's 1980s-set sci-fi drama kicked things into higher gear by the end, both with the Vecna reveal and all that comes with it (Joe Keery's Steve getting attacked in the Upside Down can't bode well for his future, as the actor told Metacritic that experience will "leave a mark"), and with Joyce (Winona Ryder) traveling to Russia to retrieve Hopper (David Harbour). 

A lot of questions still linger, though, including whether Joyce and Hopper will get back to Hawkins in time to help with the Vecna threat at all. Now, Netflix has released a "look ahead" teaser to those final two (feature film-sized) episodes left in the season, which drop on July 1.

It's short, and it's not quite sweet considering the amount of danger that still lingers, but look closely and pause accordingly and you'll get some important information about the final two episodes of the season.

Stranger Things Season 4 also features Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Sadie Sink, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, Brett Gelman, and Cara Buono, with Joseph Quinn, Eduardo Franco, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Nikola Djuricko, Tom Wlaschiha, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen, Grace Van Dien, Logan Riley Bruner, Logan Allen, Elodie Grace Orkin), John Reynolds, Rob Morgan, Amybeth McNulty, Paul Reiser, and Robert Englund.

The show comes from creators Matt and Ross Duffer, who executive produce alongside Iain Paterson, Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen, and Curtis Gwinn. Stranger Things currently has a Metascore of 74.
