Stranger Things 4 was just released and it’s been a worldwide excitement going on about the premiere. Sadly, the opening scenes of the new season synchronised with the recent mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School.
Therefore, Netflix has issued a content warning, clarifying that although the production on the new season was done in 2021, viewers may be distressed by the similarities between the scenes and the real-world Texas school shooting.
The US viewers will see this before a prior season recap leading into the new season.
“We filmed this season of ‘Stranger Things’ a year ago. But given the recent tragic shooting at a school in Texas, viewers may find the opening scene of episode 1 distressing. We are deeply saddened by this unspeakable violence, and our hearts go out to every family mourning a loved one.”
Season 4 consists of two volumes, one which arrived on the 27th of May, while the other will be live on July 1, 2022.
According to The New York Times, this season is the longest, specifically “five hours longer than any previous one,” while three of the first four episodes are 75 minutes long.
