Stranger Things Season 4: New Characters & Possible Release Date

Can you believe season 3 of Stranger Things was released 3 years ago and till this day we’re still waiting for season 4. I have decided to scour the internet and see the latest news on the series.

If you’ve been living under a rock, Stranger Things is an American science fiction horror drama television series created by The Duffer Brother and it’s one of the biggest Netflix series in the world (Source: Me).

Now that’s out of the way let’s begin.

Release Date

Season 3 of the series was released on the 4th of July 2019, a few months before the beginning of that one virus we don’t talk about. In 2020, season 4 began filming and then was forced to to shut down due to the pandemic then resumed in late 2020, filming then resumed on September 28 0f the same year finally finishing in September 2021.

Netflix has confirmed that the series will be returning in summer of 2022 which is around June July so you can expect to get more trailers and teases in March or April. The possible release date?? 15 July 2022, the same day the first episode of the series premiered and since this season seems to be going back to the past it’ll be fitting, the 15th of July is also a Friday mix that all together and you get the a perfect release date soup.

Stranger Things

The 4th season will have 9 episodes just like season 2. The episode title were released:

  • Chapter One: The Hellfire Club
  • Chapter Two: Vecna’s Curse
  • Chapter Three: The Monster and the Superhero
  • Chapter Four: Dear Billy
  • Chapter Five: The Nina Project
  • Chapter Six: The Dive
  • Chapter Seven: The Massacre at Hawkins Lab
  • Chapter Eight: Papa
  • Chapter Nine: The Piggyback

I just hope Netflix doesn’t do the splitting the season into 2 thing they did with Money Heist and Ozark but it seems like we’re safe from that.
