Stranger Things fans, prepare for more mysteries and monsters: after a longer than expected wait, Season 4 is almost here.
The next chapter will be divided into two parts, the first will be released in May 2022 and the second later in the year in July.
Stranger Things seasons have always varied in terms of the number of episodes.
The first season only had eight, while season 2 had nine, before the series went back to eight for season 3. Season 4, on the other hand, will feature nine action-packed episodes.
But episode count won’t be the only element that will make this one of the greatest seasons the show has ever had, with the upcoming chapter’s supersized episodes (equivalent to over 13 hours of chilling events) that also make her stand out from the crowd.
