The most recent Season 4 of Stranger Things was released in two parts with Volume 1 on 27 May and Volume 2 on 1 July 2022.

A teaser for the latest instalment shares: “It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins.

“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.”

As for Season 5, Netflix has confirmed that it won’t be released until 2024 with an exact release date to be announced.

Stranger Things season 5 will be the last

Ahead of the release of the show’s fourth season, it was announced that Stranger Things will end with its fifth season.

Creators the Duffer brothers said: “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 see for yourselves — we are now hurtling toward our finale. Season 4 will be the penultimate season; season 5 will be the last.”

They added; “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 a small town called Hawkins and an alternate dimension known only as the Upside Down. As always, we are grateful for your patience and support.”
