NETFLIX: If you love Stranger Things, then season 4 will give you a lot more to love, as episodes 7 and 9 are feature-length, with the season finale stretching over two hours long.
Stranger Things 4 has a lot going on, explained co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer….
“A lot of it had to do with the fact that we had characters spread out in three locations and we had a lot more plot,” said Matt. “It must be quadruple the plot we had in Season 3. That was our fun blockbuster season. This season we knew that Season 5 was going to be our last, we had to start revealing a lot.”
“The more we were writing, the more we realized we need more time in order for these reveals to land, in order for these storylines to work,” continued Matt. “Partway through we knew we needed to ask Netflix for nine episodes instead of eight and as we started shooting we realized, Oh these are mega-long episodes.”
Stranger Things 4 will premiere its first volume of episodes on Netflix Friday, May 27th, while volume 2 will arrive on July 1st.
