We have been waiting a long time for the fourth season of stranger thingsand the Duffer Brothers reward our patience with much, a lot hours of content. Specifically, Matt Duffer said The envelope, “Seven and Nine in particular are movies. And nine is one long film.”
Given that the rest of the episodes would already be around an hour and fifteen minutes long, we can only imagine the longer ones approaching Marvel movie length. Ross Duffer confirmed this regarding the final, admitting: “We’re still fine-tuning but we’ll say it’s over two hours. It’s a big.
This is after they had already added an extra episode to the season order, Matt explained to The Envelope. He said, “The more we wrote, the more we realized that we needed more time for these reveals to happen, for these storylines to work. Halfway through we knew we had to ask Netflix for nine episodes instead of eight and when we started shooting we realized, Oh these are mega-long episodes.”
What could be going on in the stranger things universe who needs so much airtime? “It had a lot to do with the fact that we had characters spread over three sites and we had a lot more intrigue. It must be quadruple the plot we had in Season 3,” Matt explained.. “It was our hit fun season. This season we knew season 5 was will be our lastwe had to start revealing a lot of things.
The fourth season of stranger things will be released in two parts, with “Volume One” landing on Netflix on May 27. “Volume Two” premieres July 1 – so if you’re planning on binge-watching, you might want to block out the whole weekend, because it’s going to be a long stretch to the finish line.
