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 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 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.
The Duffer Brothers taking to Twitter today to announce the long-awaited return of Stranger Things, but also confirming that the series will reach a conclusion.
They go on to note that the 5-season-arc is the end for Eleven and the gang, but there may be more from the Stranger Things universe, but that makes sense — I long felt after Season 1 that the series should’ve been more anthology based, but the redemption of the series in Season 3 has me interested to see what 4 and 5 hold.
Could the reach exceed the grasp? We find out this May.
