Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer confirmed that Season 4 is coming soon.
In a joint open letter penned by the Duffer brothers which was posted by Netflix on social media, the creators announced that season 4 will be "bigger than ever" and will be split into two volumes.
"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. Everyone involved is incredibly proud of the results, and we can't wait to share it with you," the open letter said.
The Stranger Things creators announced that due to its "unprecedented length, and to get it to you as soon as possible, Season 4 will be released in two volumes. Volume One will release on May 27th; Volume Two will release five weeks later on July 1st."
They added, "Seven years ago, we planned out the complete story arc for Stranger Things. At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It proved too large to tell in four, but—as you'll soon see for yourselves—we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last."
The Duffer Brothers also shared what's in store for Stranger Things in the future.
"There are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes. But first we hope that you stay with us as we finish this tale of a powerful girl named Eleven and her brave friends, of a broken police chief and a ferocious mom, of all small town called Hawkins and an alternate dimension known only as the Upside Down. As always, we are grateful for your patience and support," the Duffer brothers said.
