How many episodes?

If Volume 1 is composed of 7 episodes of 80 minutes on average, Volume 2 will take the form of two short films. Two episodes, only, but the first will last 1h25 and the second will approach 2h30.

How does Volume 1 end?

The last episode offers us a big revelation about the past of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). As she works with Dr. Martin Brenner (Matthew Modine) to restore her powers, she unlocks traumatic memories she had buried. In particular that of the massacre at the Hawkins laboratory. A massacre perpetrated by the terrible One (Jamie Campbell Bower), very first subject of Brenner, a child endowed with phenomenal psychic gifts, but very unstable! Eleven had ended up fighting him and managed to imprison One in the Upside Down. After spending years in this macabre dimension, the environment has transformed it into this “Vecna”…

Who will be the villain of Volume 2?

Obviously the Mind-Flayer will not be back yet and Vecna ​​will always be the monster to defeat. Jamie Campbell Bower tell EW that his role will expand in Volume 2.”It goes deeper, visually, story-wise, and emotionally for all the characters. We really expect a fairly explosive climax. I know a lot of people have used the word explosive, big show, but really, here we are!”

What will happen to the characters?

“As great as Volume I is, Volume II is extraordinary” already teasing Shawn Levy, one of the show’s executive producers and directors, in EW. Beyond the XXL duration of the two episodes, the producer talks about the “huge heart” of this Volume 2. “That has always been the real superpower of this series. It wouldn’t have become such a phenomenon without that emotion and without that beating heart. As big and cinematic as it has become Stranger Things in season 4, she will also provide emotion.

He suggests in the process that Max will still have a central place in the sequel and that the “fourth episode of Volume 1 is a major episode for later episodes of Volume 2…”

Will is also expected to come out and Levy half-heartedly confirms that there is “an intention, a clear strategy and a real reflection on each character. So, if you leave volume 1 thinking that we have sown clues to the evolution of a character, it is probably not a coincidence…”

Will there be a season 5 in stride?

Yes, season 5 of Stranger Things has already been ordered. This will be the last season and therefore the end of the series. Not yet in filming, it should begin production shortly, actor Noah Shnapp told us. Anyway, Shawn Levy confirm in EW that Volume 2 Season 4 will set the stage for this conclusion: “There is no doubt that season 4 is designed as a prelude and a springboard for the fifth and final season. When you watch volume 2, you will know what I am talking about (…) Without giving anything away, everything happens for a reason for Stranger Things. That’s why we’re going to end things after season 5 because it’s important for the Duffer brothers and for all of us to finish strong, to successfully land our story. Not to jump into one more piece of history without a purpose.”
