WATCH: Netflix Gives Fans Sneak Peek at ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4
What goes bump in the night?
The stranger kids make it a mission to find out in the most recent sneak peek for Stranger Things.
The trailer, which premiered as part of Netflix’s “Tudum,” opens up with a family of four moving into a spacious, luxurious house.
The kids begin to notice strange occurrences before they wind up lying lifeless on the floor.
Flash-forward to the 1980s when the kids (now teens), along with Steve, arrive at the abandoned clues to find answers.
The clip also includes a grandfather clock in the attic exploding as it strikes midnight. Based on the debris floating around it, it might just be the portal to the Upside Down.
Season 4 is set to premiere in 2022 due to COVID-19 delays.
‘Controlling Britney Spears’ Documentary Premieres on FX and Hulu Tonight
“Controlling Britney Spears,” a surprise sequel to the Emmy-nominated documentary Framing Britney Spears, premieres tonight on Hulu and FX at 10/9c.
The sequel will feature the accounts as told by insiders with intimate knowledge of Spears’ daily life under the conservatorship. Additionally, it will include a detailed confidential report previously published by The New York Times, that disclosed Spears talking to a court investigator in which she described the conservatorship as “an oppressive and controlling tool against her.”
According to TVLine, in the exclusive New York Times investigation, “a portrait emerges of an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored every move she made.”
Producer Liz Day said, “Britney’s situation raises a lot of important questions about the conservatorship system at large and whether it is working properly. We felt that it was in the public interest to examine that.”
Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, became the solitary conservator over her estate in 2008. Through this, he gained control over the most important aspects of her life including financial and medical decisions.
13 years later, now 39 years old, Spears is in a legal battle trying to end the conservatorship altogether to regain control over her life. The next court hearing is set for Wednesday, September 29.
Fans can watch the documentary on FX or Hulu starting at 10 p.m.
The sequel comes just days before Netflix’s documentary titled Britney vs. Spears premieres on September 28.
