Stranger Things Season 4

Today, Netflix subscribers will be treated to a new season of one of the most anticipated series of the year: Stranger Things. Netflix’s hit series comes shortly after the tragic events in Uvalde, Texas, this week. Following the Robb Elementary School shooting, which killed 19 students and two teachers, Netflix chose to air a warning card before the new episodes.

Indeed, the episode will be the subject of a content warning for “graphic violence involving children” and “disturbing images“. “We filmed this season of Stranger Things a year ago,” the warning message reads, according to Variety. “But given the recent tragic shooting at a Texas school, viewers may find the opening scene of Episode 1 upsetting. We are deeply saddened by this unspeakable violence, and our hearts go out to all the families who mourn a loved one.”


According to information from Variety, the warning message regarding graphic violence involving children should be visible at the beginning of episode 1, The Hellfire Club. Un warning has also been added to the official description of the first episode. As explained above, these two changes are essentially aimed at warning viewers still traumatized by this week’s events that the episode contains an opening scene that they might find “distressing.”

Indeed, if you have watched the preview of about 8 minutes of the beginning of the new season that Netflix has shared on social networks (which seems to have been removed from YouTube), you already know what it is. In this sequence, we see a young Eleven at Hawkins National Laboratories. Specifically, she is shown in a way that suggests to viewers that she has just killed the group of children.

As a reminder, the new season 4 of Stranger Things should be available in a few minutes at 09:01 French time. The press has already expressed its impressions of the first episodes, and the critics have been unanimous.
