Netflix has been heavily promoting the upcoming season with merchandise, events, and more. Season 3 of Stranger Things aired on Netflix almost three years ago, so fans have been waiting for the new season for quite a while.
Last season saw the Hawkins friends battling the Mind Flayer and destroying the new mall in the process. Now, high school students, the group will continue to experience all the weird stuff happening in town in season 4.
Stranger Things season 4 will be split into two parts with ‘Volume 1’ airing on May 27 and ‘Volume 2’ set to premiere on July 1.
