Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer Includes A Hidden Message That We All Missed

Stranger Things season four’s first official trailer was released recently, and eagle-eyed fans believe they’ve spotted a series of cryptic clues within it.

If you look closely at one point in the new teaser video, you’ll notice a series of timestamps overlaid on a cosmic background, all of which correspond to different scenes from the trailer.

Four different timestamps of 1:46, 0:33, 2:30, and 0:52 can be seen in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the trailer, which you can see above, at the 1:59 mark (click the image below to see a bigger version).

These timestamps each correspond to a different scene in the trailer, such as Mike (Finn Wolfhard) watching Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) being escorted away by authorities, Max (Sadie Sink) reading a letter at Billy’s grave, new character Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn) leading a dungeons and dragons game, and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) watching Lucas’ (Caleb McLaughlin)

As for what these timestamps are hiding, one Reddit user speculated that the white holes and their placement on the screen during the trailer line up with specific words and letters at each of the timestamps’ indicated moments.

Fans believe that when put together, this spells out the message “I am Hell’s Master.”

Meanwhile, the hit Netflix show has been announced to end after 5 seasons, with the fourth series split into two parts.

Shawn Levy, executive producer, explained how they never wanted the show to “run on fumes,” saying, “It’s been clear for a while that [writers the Duffer brothers] know exactly where we’re going and this is the arc.”

“We wouldn’t want to be here for a second longer than that vision and the clarity of that voice,” Levy continued.

“So, rather than focusing on that sad day that will happen who knows when, the end of season five, I’ll just reaffirm what I’ve told everyone, which is that season 4 has been a long-ass wait.”

“But I swear to God, the rest of the world will see it’s worth it.”

Stranger Things season 4 will premiere in two parts on Netflix on May 27 and July 1.
