Stranger Things Fans Stunned After Netflix Confirms 'Upside Down Twist'

Stranger Things fans have had their minds blown by a new tweet shared by Netflix.

On Tuesday (28 June), the streaming giant posted a side-by-side shot of Eleven and Vecna’s psychic showdown at the Hawkins National Laboratory during episode seven of season four.

The bust-up took place in the Rainbow Room, a recreational space for young test subjects. Rainbows painted on the room’s walls can be seen behind Eleven and Vecna during their brawl, but the multi-coloured stripes on Vecna’s side are upside down, a detail that blew minds left, right and centre.

Sharing the two photos, Netflix tweeted: “When you spot that the rainbow behind him was UpSiDe DoWn…”

It didn’t take long for Stranger Things fans to share their disbelief, with one simply writing: “Mind blown.”

Another added: “Oh my god!” while a third echoed: “Not me running back to this episode and my mind exploding.”

Other comments included: “OMG we would never have noticed that”, “Damnnnnnnnnn”, and “Oh holery sheetballs never noticed that.”

In the show, The Upside Down is a monster-riddled dimension that exists parallel to the human world, and thanks to Netflix’s tweet, the mysterious alternate reality just got a whole lot more… mysterious.

Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait too long to find out just what the hell is going on, because the final two episodes of season four hit Netflix on Friday (1 July).

Ahead of the episodes’ release, Stranger Things co-creator Ross Duffer issued a warning to fans of the sci-fi series, admitting that viewers should be 'concerned' for their favourite characters.

Duffer told Variety that it is a 'darker season' and fans should be ‘concerned’.

He said: "I don't really want to say, but I would be concerned about the characters going into Volume 2, for sure.

"I hope that that is sort of the sense, because it is a darker season, and the kids are no longer kids. And there's sort of an ominous feeling that things might not go well. Now, whether they do [die] or not, you'll have to watch."

Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers in the series, has also teased multiple deaths.

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, Schnapp told host Jimmy Fallon: “You can expect from Volume Two, we've got some deaths coming, some gore, and a big..."

The actor was quickly interrupted by Fallon who jumped in to say: "Wow, that's a big spoiler. Dude, you just said something that you can't say!"

Schnapp quickly fired back: "No, but I didn't say who!"
