Stranger Things season 4: Release date and spoilers for hotly anticipated series

The hotly anticipated Stranger Things season 4 has been teased with a brand new trailer and the release date confirmed.

After the last series left with a nail-biting cliffhanger, fans will be pleased to know they don't have long to wait until the next instalment of the story is unveiled.

Fans were led to believe that beloved character Hopper (David Harbour) was killed in the final episode of the last series.

The trailer that was released today, shows a snowy wasteland of the Soviet Union.

Workers are shivering as snowflakes descend, with what appears to be a binding or railway being constructed.

Then, right at the end of the clip, one man removes his hat and he's revealed as beloved character Hopper (David Harbour).

In the huge twist, it turns out he's alive.
