It’s been a little quiet in the Stranger Things camp of late, with no new episodes for the best part of three (!) years. But, dear residents of Hawkins, that is about to change. This year, we’re in for a double dose of the upside down, as the long-awaited fourth season of the hit show will come in two parts. Circle the dates May 27 and July 1 in your sci-fi diaries, as parts one and two of Stranger Things season four will drop on these days.
Here, we see some thrilling new monsters, intriguing new locations and all hell breaking loose. There’s also new characters to get excited about, including Robert Englund, who played the famous Freddy Kruger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. You know just in case the show needed any more eighties nostalgia added in.
Back in February, the Stranger Things crew began to count down to the big reveal, posting teasers to the first four episodes on the show. They then hit us with the release dates and a note to their fans.
Your first dose of fresh content comes with the hint : “001: Russia. Getting the band back together.” It sure should feel that way!
Our next clue read: “002. The Lab. Every story starts somewhere,” followed by “003. Creel House. Tick Tock,” and, finally, “004. California. Hold onto your butts, brochachos.” That we will, guys. That we will.
Season Four of Stranger Things will hit Netflix in two parts, the first on May 27 and the second on July 1.
