No worries because Netflix has cut out the best of the interviews and “black carpet” moments.

And to help you in your Philadelphia is always sunny/Pepe Silvia conspiracy board, here are some of the latest preview images deserving of their own red strings (you know who you are), followed by a jumble of previous previews:
by Netflix stranger things stars winona ryder (Joyce Byer) David Harbor (Jim Hopper) Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair) Noah Schnapp (Will Byer) Sadie sink (Max Mayfield), Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler) Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers) Joe Keery (Steve Harrington) Maya Hawk (Robin Buckley) Priah Ferguson (Erica Sinclair) Brett Gelman (Murray), Dear Buono (Karen Wheeler), and Matthew Modine (Dr. Brenner). Now, without further ado, we return to your continued repeat viewings of the official fourth season trailer:
Six months have passed since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Grappling with the consequences, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made it any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a horrifying new supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, could finally bring an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.
With the tagline “Every Ending Has a Beginning,” the official key art for the fourth season that was previously released began in Russia with a Hopper-Joyce reunion. From there, we see Eleven return to her worst nightmare in the second key art poster. With the third poster, familiar faces investigate the truth behind the murders in the Creel house. As the fourth poster takes us to the Byers’ new life in California, a life that is about to be turned upside down. Because even though they are all in different parts of the world, there is always something that connects them all. And then we got the final poster tying it all together. And now the good news: stranger things 4 comes to you in two parts: Volume 1 comes out on May 27, and Volume 2 quickly follows on July 1. The bad news? As The Duffer Bros revealed in a letter below, the series will end with the following fifth season.
Now here’s a look at the letter shared by the Duffer Bros announcing the end of the series with the fifth season, but teasing that more of the show’s universe might be on the way:
Here is now an overview of the titles of the episodes of the fourth season, as well as the announcement video: S04E01 – “The Hellfire Club”; S04E02 – “Vecna’s Curse”; S04E03 – “The Monster and the Superhero”; S04E04 – “Dear Billy”; S04E05 – “The Nina Project”; S04E06 – “The Dive”; S04E07 – “The Massacre at Hawkins Lab”; S04E08 – “Daddy”; S04E09 – “The Piggyback Ride”:
When the third season ended and with Hopper seemingly dead, the Byers and Eleven prepared to leave Hawkins. But as we’ve seen before and become abundantly clear in the clip below, Hawkins has a reach that extends far beyond Indiana. So while Eleven is looking forward to a great Spring Break with Mike, outside forces might have something to say about it (as you’ll see in the following teasers):

By checking in at last weekend’s Deadline Hollywood Contenders conference and with over a month until the premieres of Season 4 Part 1, Matt Duffer & Ross Duffer had some additional information to offer on what fans can expect from what looks like an epic season in the making – both with the storyline and the literal size of the season and its episodes:
“Stranger Things” Season 4: Game of Thrones? “We jokingly call it our ‘Game of Thrones’ season because it’s so expansive, so I think that’s what’s unique or most unique about the season. Joyce and the Byers family went to the end of season 3. They’re in California – we always wanted to have that “ET” suburban aesthetic, which we finally got to do this year in the desert, and then we have Hopper in Russia, and then of course, we have a group that stays in Hawkins, so we have these three storylines, all related and kind of intertwined, but they’re just very different tones.- Matt Duffer
“We didn’t know how big the season was going to get, and we didn’t even realize until we were halfway through, just in terms of the story we wanted to tell this season. ‘Game of Thrones’ is something that we referenced, but also for us, what it’s really about is revelations, in that we really wanted to start giving answers to the audience.” –Ross Duffer
Season 4 comes with answers“Back when we were doing Season 1, Netflix kept saying, ‘Can you explain all this mythology to us?’ So we wrote this giant 20-page document, which talked about everything in terms of what was going on and what exactly the Upside Down was, and then every season we just peel back the layers of that onion, so say But this season, we really wanted to get started and [reveal] some of these answers. But to do it right, we needed time, so it just got bigger and bigger.” – Ross Duffer
Season 4 Brings Much More To Viewers Than Just An Extra Episode“I don’t think we get an episode in under an hour – even in season 1 there were episodes that were around 35 minutes long. You kinda forget that. This season they’re really long, so I think it’s almost double the length of any season. So that’s one of the reasons it took so long. There’s this kind of epic quality. It’s a feeling different, of course. Matt Duffer
