Sure, a part of me thought that maybe they meant Alexei, because, though Russian, he was on in love with American culture, but then I thought about it and said, "No, sorry, your sweet new favorite boy is dead", because it's most definitely Hopper they're referring to.
Netflix has just dropped a teaser trailer for season 4 of the smash hit series, and the extremely brief and dialogue-free spot contains a major reveal that should have loyal viewers absolutely flipping their wigs.More news: Succulent contract renewal offer to tie down Van Dijk
As dogs bark and officials with guns guard from watch towers, we see workers mining in the blistering cold, before Hopper - newly balded - is eventually revealed.
Things don't look great for him.
Although fans will no doubt be thrilled to see Hopper is alive, it's not all good news as he is being held as a prisoner in Kamchatka "where he will face dancers both human... and other". Since then, we've been gathering plenty of evidence that supports the idea that Hopper was somehow transported to Russian Federation during that deadly blast, and that's how he survived unbeknownst to everyone at home. "Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything", said showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer.More news: Washington Redskins to cut cornerback Josh Norman
The streaming site have also promised the next instalment will be "the biggest and most frightening season yet". "In the meantime - pray for the American".
There's nothing else to the trailer, really, like a release date or more information on when we'll learn additional details about the show's return, but fans will no doubt get a kick out of it.More news: A four-cylinder Toyota Supra is coming to Canada with 255 horsepower
