Stranger Things has been off the air since the summer of 2019, and the wait for new episodes stops on Friday, May 27.
As previously reported, the season will be split in two, with the second part set for July 1.
Netflix on Friday dropped some shocking news, revealing that the first volume of Stranger Things Season 4 will consist of seven episodes, meaning two remain for the second volume.
Fans can expect much longer episodes this time, with Stranger Things Season 4 Episode 7 set to clock in at 98 minutes.
As for Stranger Things Season 4 Episode 9, that will be the longest episode of the series, coming in at around two and a half hours long.
Matt Duffer recently explained to The Wrap that episodes “seven and nine, in particular, are movies. And nine is a long movie.”
Regarding the aforementioned season finale, Ross Duffer said, “We’re still refining it but we will say that it is over two hours. It’s a big one.”
The rest of the episodes will come in at around 75 minutes, which means we’re getting a lot of Stranger Things content.
After such a grueling hiatus, we deserve it!
