The official trailer for Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 has been released… and it’s all hands on deck for what looks like the biggest battle in the Netflix series so far.
At the end of volume 1, the origins of the new villain Vecna were revealed, as it was discovered that he was in actual fact Number One (Jamie Campbell Bower), aka the predecessor to Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, who also boasted powerful abilities.
After One (who’s real name is Henry Creel) caused a massacre of the other children at Hawkins Lab, Eleven fought against him, causing him to disintegrate and descend into the Upside Down.
In the latest look at the upcoming two feature-length episodes, Max (Sadie Sink) is still being bolstered by Kate Bush’s powerful ballad Running Up That Hill, as she and her friends decide what their next step against Vecna should be.
As hinted at in a previous teaser, Eddie (Joseph Quinn) finds an electric guitar in the Upside Down, presumably to use the power of music against the villain, while Nancy (Natalia Dyer) shows off her skills with a gun, Robin (Maya Hawke) admits to Steve (Joe Keery) that she’s starting to lose hope and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) gets in a fist fight.
Meanwhile, Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce (Winona Ryder) have been reunited in Russia, but their reunion may be bittersweet as more dangers lie in their path.

In the trailer, Eleven’s so-called Papa, Dr Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine), can be heard saying: ‘I know you’re frightened. You’re terribly frightened by what you’ve seen. But I’m not going to lie to you. Your friends are not prepared for this fight.’
Despite his pessimistic words, the sound of Running Up That Hill can be heard in the background, hinting that there is still hope, as Erica (Priah Ferguson), Lucas, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Eddie, Robin, Steve and Nancy travel in a van together, pondering their next move.

‘Hawkins will fall,’ Brenner warns – but Eleven is not want to go down without a fight, responding: ‘My friends need me.’
Always one to make Eleven feel like she’s not worthy, her old Papa talks her down yet again, telling her: ‘You’re not ready.’

At this point in the trailer, the drum beats of Kate Bush’s classic tune intensifies, as Will (Noah Schnapp) stresses to Mike (Finn Wolfhard) that Vecna will stop at nothing to get everyone and conquer all.
Shortly after, Eddie finds the guitar in the Upside Down that he’ll later play – and we can’t wait to hear him rip the instrument to shreds in the apocalyptic wasteland.

‘I have a terrible feeling it might not work out for us this time,’ Robin tells Steve, despite having demonstrated her problem-solving skills in the past.
Meanwhile, Max, Erica and Lucas take a trip to the old Creel house, where Henry grew up and was first seen using his powers, causing the deaths of his mother and sister.
Then – the voice everyone dreads is heard in a voiceover, as Vecna declares: ‘It is over. Now I just want you to watch.’
