The hype that has been building over the past few months as fans wonder what kind of new trauma is in store for this new season.

Everyone is kind of scattered and there are a few glimpses of Hawkins, California, and possibly other dimensions. Fans will be breaking down all of the images and footage that were released until the premiere of the series. Check out the images below.
The excessive producer of Stranger Things, Shawn Levy, was interviewed by ScreenRant about why the series is coming to an end soon. In the interview, Levy hinted that the creative team behind the show has had the finale figured out for some time now.
"Well, we never wanted to run on fumes and we wanted to only tell as much story as the brothers saw and feel with clarity," Levy said in the interview. "So it's been clear for a while that they know exactly where we're headed and this is the arc. We wouldn't want to stick around for one moment beyond that vision and the clarity of that voice. So rather than focusing on that sad day that happens who knows when, the end of season five, I'll just once again reaffirm what I've told everyone, which is it has been a long-ass wait for season four. But I swear to God, the world will realize it's worth it."
Before the release of Stranger Things Season 4, the creator of the show, the Duffer brothers, shared the fact that the end of the show was coming in a special letter addressed to the fans. The cast and crew of the hit show were already aware that the end is near.
"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," the Duffer brothers said in their statement. "It proved too large to tell in four, but -- as you'll soon 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 broke 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. Over and out, Matt and Ross."
Stranger Things Season 4 will be released in two parts. The first volume will be released on May 27, 2022 and the second volume will be released on July 1, 2022.
