And the fate of David Harbour's police chief Jim Hopper was also confirmed in the first teaser for the highly-anticipated fourth season of the sci-fi series.

It looks like it's good news for the 'American'. Well, kind of.

The Duffer Brothers sent fans a message "from Russia with love" on Friday, as they confirmed the return of the previously-presumed-to-be-dead Hopper.

"We’re excited to officially confirm that production on Stranger Things 4 is now underway -- and even more excited to announce the return of Hopper," they said.

"Although it’s not all good news for our “American”; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human...and other. Meanwhile, back in the states, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything….

"Season 4 is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet, and we cannot wait for everyone to see more. In the meantime -- pray for the American."

Alongside the message, they released the first footage from season four of Stranger Things - which also debuts a new look for Hopper...
