Netflix Puts Warning on 'Stranger Things' Season 4 After Texas Shooting

Netflix is adding a last-minute content warning to the fourth season of Stranger Things in the wake of the devastating elementary school shooting in Texas this week.

“We filmed this season of Stranger Things a year ago,” reads the warning that runs before the prior season recap. “But given the recent tragic shooting at a school in Texas, viewers may find the opening scene of episode 1 distressing. We are deeply saddened by this unspeakable violence, and our hearts go out to every family mourning a loved one.”

Explained a Netflix spokesperson: “We decided to add the card given the proximity of the premiere to this tragedy — and because the opening scene is very graphic.”
