Stranger Things Season 4 Release Date
The Stranger Things Season 4 release date has been affected by the pandemic and will now be released in two parts. The first part of the season will be released on May 27, 2022. Then, approximately 6 weeks later, part 2 will be released on July 1, 2022.
Production began for the very first time for the new season back in January 2020 but had to be brought to a halt within a couple of months. This is because production for season 4 had to be shut down thanks to covid 19. Then, filming for the fourth season began in October 2020.
Moreover regarding how amazing season 4 is going to be The Duffer brothers wrote in a statement:
“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 4 was the most challenging season yet, but also the most rewarding one.”
This definitely makes it seem that the long gap between season 3 and season 4 is worth it. In addition to this, Stranger Things season 5 has also been renewed. And a statement has also been released announcing that season 5 will be the last season for the series. While speaking about why season 5 has to be the final season for the series, Shawn Levy said:
“Well, we never wanted to run on fumes and we wanted to only tell as much story as the [Duffer] brothers saw and fell with clarity. So it’s been clear for a while that they know exactly where we’re headed and this is the arc.”

“It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time—and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.”
