Netflix is giving a warning to the new season of “Stranger Things” after the shooting at a Texas elementary school.
After the shooting at a Texas elementary school this week, Netflix has issued a warning notice at the beginning of Season 4 of Stranger Things. As “The Hollywood Reporter” reports, a disclaimer appears at the beginning of the first episode “Hellfire Club” of the season that started this Friday: “We filmed this season of ‘Stranger Things’ a year ago,” it says. “In light of the recent tragic school shooting in Texas, viewers may find the opening scene of Episode 1 disturbing. We are deeply saddened by this unspeakable violence and our hearts go out to any family who is grieving the loss of a loved one.”
Opening scene with violence
The season begins with a violent opening scene depicting violence, including dying children. The note cannot be seen in Germany, only in the US version.
On Tuesday, an 18-year-old gunman shot dead 19 students and two teachers at an elementary school in a small Texas town.
“Stranger Things” is one of the most successful series on Netflix. The first seven episodes of the fourth season were released on May 27th, and the final two episodes will be available on the streaming service on July 1st.
