Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 is out this week on Netflix. Fans are very excited about it because it comes almost five weeks after the shocking big reveal at the end of Volume 1, which had seven parts. The two-part ending to season 4 of Stranger Things is said to be full of action and have a “cinematic” look and feel. Here are some spoilers for Volume 1. Also, Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays the evil villain Vecna, says that this time around, the story will have “tremendous emotional depth.”
Also, since revenge is the main theme of Stranger Things 4, there is a good chance that some of our favorite characters will die in a sad way in Volume 2. Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the fan-favorite character Eleven, had already hinted at this when she said, “You need to start killing people off.”
Then, of course, Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 will set the stage for the fifth and final season, which will be the end of the Netflix story that began in 2016.
So, here’s everything you need to know about Stranger Things 4 Volume 2.
Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 release time
Friday, July 1, at 12:30 IST/12am PT, both episodes of Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 will be available on Netflix.
Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 episodes and runtime
Stranger Things season 4, volume 2, has two extra-long episodes called “Papa” and “The Piggyback,” which run for 1 hour and 25 minutes and 2 hours and 19 minutes, respectively.
This means that they are longer than Shawn Levy’s movies Free Guy and The Adam Project, which starred Ryan Reynolds and ran for 115 and 106 minutes, respectively.
Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 cast
Bower, who shocked everyone with his shocking and unsettling change at the end of Stranger Things season 4 volume 1, is back as the monster Vecna who wants to cause trouble. He recently told The Hollywood Reporter that the human side of the character will be explored in Volume 2: “I think that what you’ll see is more of Vecna’s human side. Let me just say that. And there’s a huge, great, cool thing you see, too. I can’t say what it is, but I need to keep my mouth shut.
In the same way, Brown’s Eleven will be at her most fierce in the last two episodes of Stranger Things season 4, which are mostly about her trying to get back at Vecna. In the Stranger Things 4: Volume 2 trailer, she seemed to go against Dr. Martin Brenner’s orders and leave the Nevada facility.
In addition to Brown and Bower, the cast of Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 also includes Winona Ryder as Eleven’s adoptive mother Joyce Byers, Finn Wolfhard as her boyfriend Mike Wheeler, and Noah Schnapp as his best friend Will Byers.
David Harbour is back as the former police chief of Hawkins, Jim Hopper. Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin are back as Mike and Will’s friends Dustin Henderson and Lucas Sinclair.
Harbour recently said that what has happened so far “will look like chump change” compared to what will happen on Stranger Things 4 Volume 2.
Sadie Sink plays Sinclair’s ex-girlfriend Max Mayfield, Natalia Dyer plays Wheeler’s sister Nancy Wheeler, Charlie Heaton plays Joyce’s oldest son and Will’s brother Jonathan Byers, Joe Keery plays Nancy’s ex-boyfriend Steve Harrington, Maya Hawke plays Steve’s best friend Robin Buckley, Priah Ferguson plays Lucas’ sister Erica Sinclair, Cara Buono plays the Wheeler matriarch Karen Wheeler, and Brett Gelman plays
Eduardo Franco and Joseph Quinn are also back as Jonathan’s friend Argyle and Eddie Munson, who started the Hellfire Club. In the trailer for Volume 2, the fan favorite can be seen playing guitar in the Upside Down.
Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 trailer
Stranger Things 4: Volume 2 got a sneak peek in the last episode of Volume 1. The 30-second preview had a voiceover from Vecna that sounded ominous. The monster told Eleven that it was “all over” because she had “freed” him.
After that, Netflix put out a full-length trailer (below) for Stranger Things season 4 volume 2, which focused on the intense relationship between Vecna and Wheeler before turning into an action-packed scene.
Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 Review
At the time this article was written, there was not a single review of Stranger Things 4: Volume 2. This suggests that the first reviews may not be out yet, which is often the case with Netflix originals.
When will Stranger Things 5 come?
Those who make and run TV shows The Duffer Brothers have already said that the fifth and final season of Stranger Things will be the last. It’s already being planned.
After seeing the last two episodes of season 4, we should have a better idea of what the future holds for Stranger Things.
This won’t be the end of the franchise, though, because spin-offs will continue to tell “many more exciting stories.”
Matt Duffer recently said that the spin-off series will be “different than what anyone is expecting.”
