"You've broken everything. Your suffering is almost at an end," says an ominous voice at the beginning of the trailer for Stranger Things season 4.

On Tuesday, Netflix released the long-awaited trailer for the penultimate season of the science fiction horror drama.

"It's been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn't made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down," reads the official synopsis.

Elsewhere in the 3-minute clip, laboratory owner Sam Owens (Paul Reiser) warns Eleven (Brown) that "a war is coming, and without you, we cannot win this war."

At the end of the clip, the new evil they will have to fight is revealed, as Entertainment Weekly describes it, a humanoid, zombified figure connected to the Upside Down through strands.

Season four is divided into Volume 1, which premieres on 27 May and Volume 2 on 1 July.
