This is not a drill! The first ever look at Season 4 of Stranger Things has arrived in the form of a short teaser, and it's giving the series' fans what they want: Confirmation that their favorite sheriff is still with us.

The official Stranger Things Twitter account shared the video this morning in honor of Valentine's Day, writing, "From Russia with love…" The clip begins in a wintry location, presumably Russia, with men doing physical labor outside. Just as the video is about to end (and fans are about to lose their patience), one person takes off his hat to reveal he's none other than Jim Hopper. And he's rocking quite a different look.

Fans, understandably, are freaking out. Season 3 of the beloved show concluded with Hopper sacrificing himself in order to close the Upside Down. Although we never got to actually see his body, the rest of the Hawkins gang treated the situation as if Hopper was gone. The Byers even adopted Eleven and moved out of the Indiana town following the tragedy.

We still don't have a release date for Season 4 yet, but for right now, this reveal is enough for Stranger Things fans.

Netflix Will Finally Let You Delete Embarrassing Movies and TV Shows You’ll Never Finish From Your ‘Continue Watching’ Queue

With limitless streaming content at your fingertips these days, there’s no reason to force yourself to sit through a film or series you can’t stand simply because you already started it. But if you’re watching on Netflix, all those partially finished programs that you have no intention of ever returning to will then sit in your ‘Continue Watching’ queue for eternity.

Fortunately, the latest app update includes a long-awaited fix for this issue. On your device, scroll to your ‘Continue Watching’ section and tap the three dots beneath the program you’d like to delete; choose “Remove From Row” and watch as it magically disappears from the ranks of all the gritty documentaries and beloved sitcoms you fully plan on picking back up. Not only will cleaning up your queue make it easier for you to see the shows and movies you do care about, but as Thrillist points out, it can also save you a bit of embarrassment if you’re browsing Netflix with someone who might snicker or scoff at your past viewing choices.

The feature is only available on app versions of Netflix right now, but there is a way to edit your ‘Continue Watching’ queue on your desktop, too. As TechHive explains, you have to select “Account” from the dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the Netflix homepage, head to the “Profile and Parental Controls” section, choose your profile, and then click “Viewing Activity.” There, you can hide a title from viewing history. The catch, however, is that Netflix will delete that title from all viewing history—not just your ‘Continue Watching’ queue—so no record will exist that you ever started watching it, and it won’t be factored into future recommendations. If you’re not quite willing to erase it from history, you can always edit your ‘Continue Watching’ queue on the app, and those changes will automatically be reflected on the desktop version.

Once your queue is spotless, check out these other Netflix hacks to enhance your viewing experience.
