Every ending has a beginning.
Netflix has finally announced the premiere date for the fourth season of Stranger Things. Additionally, the streamer has renewed the popular series for a fifth and final season.
In an open letter to the fans, creators Matt and Ross Duffer wrote:
“Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four but — as you’ll see for yourselves — we are now hurtling toward our finale.”
They also revealed that the fourth season will drop in two batches:
“It’s been a little while. With nine scripts, over eight-hundred pages, almost two years of filming, thousands of visual effects shots and a runtime nearly twice the length of any previous season, Stranger Things 4 was the most challenging season yet, but also the most rewarding one. Everyone involved is incredibly proud of the results, and we can’t wait to share it with you. Given the unprecedented length, and to get it to you as soon as possible, Season 4 will be released in two volumes.”
Volume One will begin streaming on May 27, 2022. Volume II will drop a few weeks later on July 1, 2022. Here’s the official synopsis for Stranger Things 4:
