The fourth season of Stranger Things will premiere later this year, and we've finally got the release date.
By the time Netflix's flagship show returns, it'll have been more than three years since the third season's finale. Of course, there's the small matter of... well, let's just call it 'the unspoken event'. Thankfully, the next chapter for Hawkins' ragtag band of teens is on the horizon.
Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Will (Noah Schnapp), Max (Sadie Sink), Steve (Joe Keery), Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), Robin (Maya Hawke) and Joyce (Winona Ryder) will all return, alongside Hopper (David Harbour), who somehow survived the events of season three.
🚨 STRANGER THINGS S4 NEWS 🚨— Netflix UK & Ireland (@NetflixUK) February 17, 2022
– Stranger Things S4 arrives 27 May *and* 1 July.
– Yes! It's coming in 2 volumes, as part of a supersized S4 (nearly 2x the length of S3!)
– S4 will be the penultimate season, Stranger Things will end with S5!!
Stranger Things' fourth season is coming in two parts: Volume 1 premieres on May 27 and Volume 2 follows on July 1. 'It's not all good news for our 'American'; he is imprisoned far from home in the snowy wasteland of Kamchatka, where he will face dangers both human... and other,' Netflix's official synopsis reads.
'Meanwhile, back in the States, a new horror is beginning to surface, something long-buried, something that connects everything.'
In an earlier interview with Entertainment Weekly, Matt and Ross Duffer teased that season four is 'going to open up a little bit... not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins.'

We do know all of the episode titles: The Hellfire Club, Vecna's Curse, The Monster and the Superhero, Dear Billy, The Tina Project, The Dive, The Massacre at Hawkins Lab, Papa, and The Piggyback.
'We like to look at each season as kind of its own complete story. We do have a pretty large mythology... and season by season, we're turning the page and revealing a little bit more and more. So we do have a general sense of where we're going. We've known the ending of the show for quite a while,' Matt also told Deadline.

Producer Shawn Levy said the end is 'in sight', but there's no confirmation of when that'll be. 'I can say this. No-one's making it up as we go along and there is an endgame, if you will,' he said.
'We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story,' Ross also said.
