Stranger Things Season 4 is back on Netflix on July 1, with its terrifying villain Vecna. Netflix dropped the official trailer for Volume 2 of the horror sci-fi series, hinting at what’s to come in the final two supersized episodes of the show’s fourth season (just one more season to go before the entire story is complete.)
Although only two new episodes await us for Volume 2, it’ll be like watching a double feature, as their combined run time will be nearly four hours.
In the trailer for Stranger Things 4 Volume 2, Eleven is seen trying desperately to make it back to her friends in Hawkins, while Brenner insists she’s “not ready” at this point in her training to return to her former level of power. He says to her, “your friends are not prepared for this fight,” and adds ominously, “Hawkins will fall.”
Will (Noah Schnapp) tells Mike that Vecna won’t stop “until he’s taken everyone,” Robin (Maya Hawke) says to Steve (Joe Keery) she has a “terrible feeling” that “it might not work out for us this time,” and Vecna warns Eleven “your friends have lost.”
The final shots in the Volume 2 trailer show Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown) in front of a giant explosion in the desert and then inside the Creel house, bathed in red light, unleashing her powers in all their destructive glory. These explosive interactions are clearly running up that hill towards Season 5’s mysterious conclusion plot.
Stranger Things Season 4’s first seven episodes broke the record for Netflix’s biggest ever premiere weekend, and Season 4 is already the No. 1 English-language Netflix season, amassing over 781 million hours viewed as of June 14. Overall, the show has been nominated for 31 Emmy awards, winning six in the creative arts categories.
“Stranger Things” also stars Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas, Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin, Sadie Sink as Max, Joe Keery as Steve, Natalie Dyer as Nancy, Charlie Heaton as Jonathan and Maya Hawke as Robin. Season 4 also features Priah Ferguson, Eduardo Franco, Joseph Quinn, Mason Dye, Robert Englund, Tom Wlaschiha, Sherman Augustus, Nikola Djuricko, Joel Stoffer, Amybeth McNulty, Myles Truitt, Regina Ting Chen and Grace Van Dien.
