Ahead of the arrival of Netflix’s final two super-sized episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 next week, the streamer has debuted an action-packed trailer.
Due to arrive on Friday, July 1, Volume 2 of Stranger Things 4 consists of two extra-lengthy installments that pick up immediately where Volume 1 left off.
“I know you’re frightened,” says Matthew Modine’s Dr. Brenner in the new trailer. “You’re terribly frightened by what you’ve seen. But I’m not gonna lie to you. Your friends are not prepared for this fight. Hawkins will fall.”
Set to pulsing music that blends the soundtrack of the show with Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill,” the preview offers glimpses of destruction, monsters, the Upside Down, and the looming threat of Vecna himself. The penultimate episode will run one hour and 25 minutes, and the finale is a whopping two hours and 30 minutes. That’s essentially two Stranger Things movies, so there’s plenty more of Eleven and the gang to look forward to.
Earlier this year, Netflix announced the series will conclude with a fifth and final season.
“Seven years ago we planned out the complete story arc of Stranger Things,” said show creators the Duffer Brothers. “At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. 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."
