Netflix’s highly anticipated sci-fi horror drama ‘Stranger Things’ is all set to return with new episodes. Season 4 of the popular drama will release on Netflix on May 27, 2022. Season 4 of the drama is scheduled to release in two parts with the first part releasing on May 27 followed by the second volume releasing on July 1, 2022. The first episode of the series was aired on 15 July 2016. The creator of the show, The Duffer Brothers has already previously disclosed that the season starts six months after the Battle of Starcourt Mall in season 3.
In an interview with Deadline, the creator discussed the anticipated season 4 and it is going to be filled with surprising elements for the critics. They compared to season 4 of the show with the most popular American fantasy drama series Game of Thrones and mentioned that it might be the most exciting thing on the show. Matt Duffer said in an interview with Deadline, “We kind of jokingly call it our Game of Thrones season because it is so spread out. I think that’s what makes it unique or most unique about the season.”
Duffer has also talked about the last season’s cliffhanger and added, “Joyce and Byers’s family too have left at the end of Season 3. They are in California – we’ve always wanted to have that like ‘E.T’.-esque suburb aesthetic, which we finally got to do this year in the desert; and then we have Hopper in Russia, and then of course we have a group remaining in Hawkins.” Ross Patridge on an episode of the Present Company said: “When we pitched it to Netflix all those years ago, we pitched it as the kids are… The Goonies in E.T, That’s their storyline. And the adults are in Jaws and Close Encounters and then the teens are in Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween. But, this year, we don’t have the kids. We can’t do The Goonies anymore. And so, suddenly, we’re leaning much harder into that horror movie territory that we love. It was fun to make that change.”
