Stranger Things season 4 finale will be almost two hours long.

Stranger Things season 4 volume 1 premieres in less than a week, and fans of the sci-fi series are giddy with anticipation. New episodes of the Netflix Original haven't been released in almost three years, and we've been counting down the days since we learned about the season 4 release dates. Season 4 will premiere on May 27, and with promises that this will be the darkest season yet, we can only picture the action that will ensue.

Stranger Things season 4 will include nine episodes in total, similar to season 2, but will be broken into two halves. Though it appears that our binges will be short in duration per volume, this may not be the case. Each episode will be supersized, as we've already stated.

We don't know how long each episode of Stranger Things season 4 will be, but the Duffer Brothers have recently revealed something significant about the finale. The show's creators revealed that episode 9 will be almost two hours long in an interview with The Wrap. For the season 4 finale, we're getting an awesome move.

The length of the Stranger Things season 4 finale episode

"Seven and nine in especially are movies," Matt Duffer teased the publication. And nine is a long film," to which The Wrap had to respond with an actual length.

“We’re still refining it but we will say that it is over two hours. It’s a big one,”  Ross Duffer affirmed.

Matt Duffer shared:

“The more we were writing, the more we realized we need more time for these reveals to land, for these storylines to work. Partway through we knew we needed to ask Netflix for nine episodes instead of eight and as we started shooting we realized, Oh these are mega-long episodes.”

The Duffers have previously compared Stranger Things season 4 to the last season of Game of Thrones, which had fewer but longer episodes. Of course, season 8 of HBO's big success was widely panned, so let's hope the Netflix program doesn't face the same fate.

Season 4 is already the last season, so it'll be fascinating to watch how the Duffers handle it. Stranger Things season 5 will be the final season, according to Netflix, which means there will be a lot more to come. And even if season 5 is a short season by chance, we bet the episodes will be extra long.

Stranger Things season 4 volume 1 will be released on May 27, followed by volume 2 on July 1.
