Stranger Things Will End With Season 5, Season 4 To Be Split Into Two Parts 

The end of the smash Netflix hit Stranger Things is officially in sight. The series creators Matt and Ross Duffer have announced that it will come to an end after its fifth season.

It has been 3 years since Stranger Things has had a new episode. Stranger Things first premiered on Netflix in 2016 and quickly rose to success. Its first season included eight episodes that introduced the young group of characters and the confusing world of the Upside Down. Season 2 premiered in 2017, while season 3 was released in 2019.

The Duffer Brothers posted a typed note on Netflix’s social media that laid out the future of Stranger Things. They announced that Stranger Things‘ fourth season will premiere in two volumes. The first will release on May 27, 2022, while the second volume will release on July 1, 2022. “So that’s the good news,” the Duffers wrote. “It’s coming soon. And it’s bigger than ever.” This news was also accompanied by four new posters that preview focal settings for the characters of Stranger Things, all of which feature the phrase, “Every ending has a beginning.” The Duffers also announced in their letter that Stranger Things would come to an end after its fifth season.

“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 4was the most challenging season yet, but also the most rewarding one,” the Duffers wrote. The episode titles for the upcoming season of Stranger Things were announced several months ago, which have given fans little insight into what each one may have in store. Given the division of the Strangers Things gang, its fourth season already has the makings to be unlike anything the series has had yet.

The Duffers went on to reveal that they planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things seven years ago. They found that their plan lent itself well to a 4 or 5 season run. In working on the show, they found that the story extended beyond season 4 and that to offer the ending they feel the show deserves, they will conclude the sci-fi journey with another season.

With Hopper stranded in Russia, the Byers family and Eleven in California, and the rest of the gang stuck in Hawkins, how the gang ends up back together remains to be seen. The Duffers promise that “There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes.” To find out exactly what they mean, the world will find out with the release of season 4’s first volume.

Stranger Things season 4, volume 1 releases on May 27, 2022. Season 4, volume 2 will release on July 1, 2022.
