Hopper is Alive And Bald In The 'Stranger Things' Season 4 Teaser

Hopper is Alive And Bald In The 'Stranger Things' Season 4 Teaser

A new "Stranger Things" teaser from Russia, with love.


Released just under an hour ago, on this beautiful Valentine's Day morning, the "Stranger Things" official YouTube channel released this 50-second teaser that not only confirms the post-ST3 survival of one Chief Jim Hopper, but also reveals what he's up to after that disastrous fourth of July mission: slaving away in a Russian gulag.

In this new clip, ironically titled "From Russia with love...", we find Hopper forced at gunpoint to complete some kind of railway system, sporting common laborer's garb and with his head shaved as he dramatically turns camera-side to face the nearly 250,000 viewers who have clicked on the video thus far.

Unfortunately, the clip reveals precious little apart from confirming the already widely accepted theory that Hopper has been alive all along and imprisoned in Russia. Ever since that infamous post-credit scene in season 3, where a Russian guard calls out for his comrade not to open "the American's" cell, fans far and wide and have speculated that Hopper had survived his little ST3 trans-dimensional joyride through the Russian portal gun. Not that the Duffers haven't taken every opportunity to indulge and practically already confirm this theory for themselves, but still--this little Valentine's Day gesture is a welcome one.

Currently having moved into its active production phase, with the filming of the show occurring all across the state of Georgia and casting calls being released left and right, the series is set to return somewhere around late 2020.

Of course, if the Duffers continue their long-standing tradition of releasing the new season on a holiday then we will more likely be celebrating a much Stranger Christmas this year than we've prepared for.

Regardless, the release of this teaser indicates that the showrunners will soon be releasing teasers, reveals, set shoots, and even trailers of the upcoming season in earnest, which means that we'll hopefully be getting a few hints about the fates of some other characters that fans of the series certainly haven't forgotten about.

Who knows what other twists and secrets the Duffers have in store for the show's overwhelming fanbase? Have Jane's powers returned? Is the Russian Terminator alive and kicking as well? How are the kids holding up in high school? Are we finally going to see the return of [redacted] character? Will our collective, nerdy prayers be answered?

Luckily, the answers to all these questions and more are finally on the horizon. Stay tuned, and have a happy Valentine's Day.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
