Well, that was quick! After a mysterious upside-down billboard popped up, Netflix have now confirmed the (two-part!) Stranger Things 4 release date(s), and revealed that it'll be the penultimate season.
"Every ending has a beginning," they announce in a new poster promoting the long-awaited season. "Vol. 1 is coming May 27. Vol. 2 is coming July 1."
In an accompanying written letter, Duffer brothers Matt and Ross share of why they decided to split things up this time around: "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. Given the unprecedented length, and to get it to you as soon as possible, Season 4 will be released in two volumes."
