So as you probably noticed due to staying up all night in anticipation, Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 dropped last night, and Netflix simply couldn’t handle it and decided to briefly cease to exist. Like, the brilliance of this show was clearly TOO MUCH and there was simply no other choice but to crash.

By which I mean, yes, Netflix stopped functioning last night due to so many people showing up to watch the final two episodes of season 4. And naturally, Twitter was immediately in a state of panic…but also jokes? It’s a delicate balance.

Variety reports that issues started happening at 3:01 a.m. ET and that DownDetector.com had more than 15,000 complaints at the “top of the hour.” It looks like the site was down for about a half hour or so, or in terms we can understand, about six consecutive listens of “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush.

Anyway, the good news is that Netflix is back, so you can stream the final two episodes of season 4 literally right now. Just make sure you set aside a good chunk of time because each episode is pretty much the length of a movie (not complaining!).

And because you’re definitely wondering, Stranger Things season 5 is happening, but sadly, it’ll be the last installment of the show. No word yet on when it will be released, but the cast hasn’t even started filming yet, so presumably not until 2023 or 2024.
