Most Anticipated New Titles on Netflix This Week

Stranger Things (Season 4 – Volume 1)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

Yep, it’s what we’ve all been waiting for. The first set of episodes that will release over the summer drop this Friday which will consist of 7 supersized episodes (each has a runtime of over an hour) and the final two episodes drop on July 1st, 2022.

Here’s what you can expect from the highly anticipated fourth season:

“It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.”

If you can’t wait to get started, the first 8 minutes of the new season dropped onto YouTube last week which we’ve embedded below for your enjoyment.
