Stranger Things is finally back, but viewers in the United States will now see a warning before diving back into the world of Hawkins, the Upside Down and beyond.
A message has been added to the fourth season of the hit Netflix show in the wake of the Texas elementary school mass shooting that killed 19 children and two teachers:
“We’ve decided to add the card given the premiere’s proximity to this tragedy — and because the opening scene is very graphic,” a spokesperson for the streaming video company told The Hollywood Reporter.
The warning will only be shown to viewers in the US.
Meanwhile, the Stranger Things description has also been updated to include “graphic violence involving children,” which may be an understatement considering what has happened to some of the young characters on the show since its release in 2016.
The fourth season of Stranger Things will be released in two parts. The first seven episodes are available now, the remaining two will be released on July 1.
