Stranger Things was already a hugely popular show since premiering on Netflix in 2016, with its mix 1980s nostalgia, teen drama, science fiction, and horror. However, the launch of the first part of its fourth season in late May 2022 resulted in much bigger viewing numbers than first predicted. The streamer confirmed that in its first three days (May 27-29), Season 4’s first seven episodes had a total viewing time of 286.79 million hours, which is the highest ever for an English language series debut on Netflix. Not only that, but the series’s first three seasons all reentered the top 5 most-viewed English language Netflix series for that same time period.
However, the Duffer brothers, the creators of Stranger Things, decided to let their massive fan base wait a few weeks, before Stranger Things Season 4 Part 2 debuts on Netflix. So when is Stranger Things Season 4 Part 2 going to debut on Netflix? Read on for a breakdown of what we know about the latest season’s final episodes.

How many episodes will there be in Stranger Things Season 4 Part 2?
Labeling them “episodes” almost feels misleading. The second part of season 4 will actually be composed of two movie-length installments. Stranger Things Season 4 episodes were already much longer than previous seasons, but the last two episodes will go even further.

According to the official Stranger Things writers’ Twitter page, the final runtime for the final episode of Stranger Things Season 4 Part 2 will be 2 hours and 19 minutes. By comparison, the longest episode of the series so far has been Season 4 Episode 7, which clocked in at 1 hour 38 minutes.
What are the titles for the final episodes?
Stranger Things episode 8 will be titled “Papa.”
The ninth and final episode will have the name “The Piggyback.”
We’ll let you speculate as to what that might mean for the content of these final episodes.
