Netflix has revealed the premiere date for ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4, which will release in two volumes. ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 Vol. 1 will release on May 27 and Vol. 2 on July 1. The streamer has also confirmed Stranger Things has been renewed for Season 5, which will be also its final season.
The announcement came in a letter by the Duffer Brothers, where they revealed that nine-episode Season 4 will be supersized and will almost be double of any previous seasons. They also confirmed that Season 4 has been created from nine scripts of a total of eight hundred pages with almost two years of filming. Below is the full statement.
"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," said the Duffer Brothers (Matt and Ross). "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 release on May 27th; Volume Two will release five weeks later on July 1st. So that's the good news. It's coming soon. And it's bigger than ever. It's also the beginning of the end. 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 soon see for yourselves -- we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last. There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes. But first, we hope that you stay with us as we finish this tale of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, of a broken police chief and a ferocious mom, of a small town called Hawkins and an alternate dimension known only as of the Upside Down. As always, we are grateful for your patience and support."
Stranger Things Season 4 picks up six months after the Battle of Starcourt, which terrorized and wrecked Hawkins. Our group of friends is struggling and separated from the aftermath for the first time - and navigating the difficulties of high school hasn't made things any easier. A new and horrific supernatural threat emerges at this most vulnerable period, providing a gruesome puzzle that, if answered, could ultimately put a stop to the horrors of the Upside Down.
