Will this be the final season of Stranger Things? What are the cast and crew dropping as hints? Here’s what we know so far about the forthcoming season.
Stranger Things season 4 has an official release date, which has been a long time coming.
The Duffer Brothers, who created the series, have confirmed that season 4 would be released in two parts due to its huge volume, in order to get it onto Netflix sooner.
That’s the good news, at least. The bad news is that Stranger Things is coming to an end, with the Duffer brothers confirming that season 5 will be “the last” and will bring the series to a close.
“It’ll be here soon.” It’s also bigger than it’s ever been. On Thursday, February 17th, the Duffer brothers stated in an open letter to fans that “it’s also the beginning of the end.”
“We plotted out the entire Stranger Things story arc seven years ago.” We expected the story would endure four to five seasons at the time. It was too big to tell in four parts, but – as you’ll soon see – we’re on our way to the finish line. Season 4 will be the penultimate season, followed by Season 5.”
“Stranger Things 4 was the most hard season ever, but it was also the most fulfilling,” they concluded. Everyone involved is ecstatic with the outcome, and we can’t wait to share it with you.”
Furthermore, a foreboding poster (below) proclaiming that “every ending has a beginning” has been placed.
Season 4 was previously previewed in a video, which revealed that it will start up 185 days after the previous season and show Eleven adjusting to her new home in California, as well as shadowy government figures and a major explosion…
Earlier teasers showed Eleven being restrained by an unknown character and the rest of the gang visiting the Creel mansion, which used to be owned by a character played by Freddy Krueger legend Robert Englund – so there’s a lot to look forward to.

The release date for Stranger Things season 4 is set for 2022.
The release date for Stranger Things season 4 has been revealed by Netflix. The first half of the new season will premiere on May 27, followed by the second half on July 1. There’s no word on how many episodes each batch will contain.
What’s the significance of the two release dates? The showrunners, the Duffer brothers, stated in a statement that the next season is the most ambitious ever, which means it will take longer to complete than expected. As a result, they’ve chosen to split up the episodes and release them in two parts. “It’ll be here shortly,” the two remarked. “It’s bigger than it’s ever been.”
The series was “scheduled to come out early ,” according to David Harbour, who plays Hopper, but was delayed owing to the coronavirus outbreak, which prevented numerous movies and TV shows from filming. The series had started filming prior to the epidemic but had to stop due to the outbreak.
It’s also worth noting that Season 5 of Stranger Things will be the final season of the show. The present storyline will be wrapped up by the end of the season. The showrunners have also hinted at “many more interesting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things,” which, if we’re being honest, sounds like an open invitation for someone to come along and create a spin-off.
Who is among the cast of the film?
The cast of Stranger Things is back for Season 4! Stranger Things Series 4 will feature Finn Wolfhard (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Millie Bobby Brown (Enola Holmes), Gaten Matarazzo (Prank Encounters), Caleb McLaughlin (Concrete Cowboy), and Noah Schnapp (Bridge of Spies).
Maya Hawke (The Good Lord Bird) and Joe Keery (Death to 2021) will also reprise their Stranger Things roles.
Winona Ryder and David Harbour are also set to return. Ryder has been in films such as Beetlejuice, Heathers, and Girl, Interrupted, while Harbour has appeared in Black Widow and Hellboy.
Is there a trailer available?
There is, indeed. You can see it, as well as the eerie supernatural oddity, right here.
how or where I’ll be able to see it.
Stranger Things Season 4 will be accessible on Netflix, just like the previous seasons of the hit programme. Series 1-3 are currently available on Netflix.
Series 4 will be split into two parts. The first five episodes will be available on Netflix on May 27, followed by the remaining four episodes on July 1. Series 4 will have a total of nine episodes.
According to the Duffer brothers, the rationale for the split season is that the show is extra-long – not in terms of episode count, but in terms of overall runtime. Series 4’s nine episodes are supposedly twice as long as Series 3’s eight episodes. Will this be the final season of the show?
We’re not there yet, but we’re getting there. Series 4 has been billed by Netflix as “the beginning of the end” – a fifth series (a proper one, not including Season 4 Volume 2 as Series 5 or anything) will premiere in 2023, and that will be the end of the Stranger Things saga.
However, it has been suggested that when the main series concludes, we may see some Stranger Things spinoffs.
Why should I bother to watch it?
Stranger Things has always strived to be a near replica of how it feels to watch those movies if you’re a fan of 80s horror with a supernatural bent.
