Netflix is sharing a glimpse of Stranger Things Season 4, Volume 2, revealing first-look photos for the new episodes. The Volume 2 photos include looks at Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Jim Hopper (David Harbour), Robin Buckley (Maya Hawke) and the rest of the cast.
One of the photos shows Eleven with Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine), aka Papa. Another photo shows Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), Will (Noah Schnapp), Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Argyle (Eduardo Franco) making their escape in Argyle’s van. In addition, Eddie (Joseph Quinn), Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and other characters are seen gathered around a book.
Volume 1 ended with a twist reveal, and the final two episodes will lead to a giant showdown set to “punch you right in the heart,” according to executive producer and director Shawn Levy. The official description for season four reads: “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.”
The two episodes in Volume 2 will drop July 1 and span nearly four hours — 408 runs 1 hour, 25 minutes and the finale, 409, will be a whopping 2 hours and 20 minutes.
