Stranger Things 4’s finale will reportedly be two and a half hours long when it releases in July.
Yep, you heard that right. The final episode of Stranger Things 4 is essentially a feature-length film, reaching two and a half hours. And that’s not all – other episodes in the series will be well over an hour long each.
If you’re a Stranger Things fan, you’ve definitely got a lot to look forward to judging by these runtimes. With a finale that long, you can fit two or three episodes of others shows into the same runtime. Netflix confirmed the runtimes in a new post, and they also announced the episode split.
Stranger Things Season 4
Stranger Things Season 4 will be split into two parts. Volume 1 will release on May 27th while Volume 2 will release on July 1st.
Volume 1 will have seven episodes in total, while Volume 2 will only have two of them. But judging by the runtimes, those two episodes will be some of the longest, especially that gargantuan finale.
Netflix announced “For the real geeks out there, Episode 407 is 1 hour, 38 minutes; Episode 408 is around 1 hour, 25 minutes; and 409 is almost two and a half hours.”
They also released the first 8 minutes of season 4 on the Stranger Things twitter account. So if you’ve been wanting a tease of what’s to come soon, check it out. Stranger Things 4 will follow the crew as they try to end the Upside Down while living their everyday lives in school.
Netflix has revealed these details in the midst of controversy surrounding the streaming service. They’ve been criticised for cancelling shows and laying off employees whilst pumping more and more money into their biggest shows, like Stranger Things itself. What do you think about Netflix’s approach?
