Although it seems like Stranger Things season 4 part 1 dropped eons ago, it’s only been, like, 30+ days...not that we’re counting. But somehow July 1 is finally (!!) upon us, so the time has come to get the answers to the questions we’ve been asking after episode 7’s epic cliff-hanger. This season’s part 2 is a biiiiit different this time around in that it’s only two episodes as opposed to the seven that made up part 1. While the thought of fewer episodes might make you wanna cry, don’t be discouraged! Shawn Levy, the show’s director, teased there’s still lots more to come. “I’ll just tell you, as great as volume 1 is, volume 2 is extraordinary,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I can’t wait for the world to react to volume 1, knowing that they have such rich episodes to come in just over a month.” Okay, noted. *wipes tears*

Since July 1 can’t come soon enough, we bet you’re curious about all the deets on how to watch the season 4 finale, like what time Stranger Things actually comes back and what the release schedule looks like—so let’s get into it, shall we?

What are the Stranger Things season 4 part 2 episode dates and times? When does it come out??

The final two episodes of season 4 will hit Netflix at exactly 12 a.m. PT/3 a.m ET on July 1...aka very soon. *screams internally* The release comes roughly five weeks after part 1’s premiere on May 27, and honestly, it couldn’t come fast enough due to how fast I binged watched the season’s first seven episodes.

How long will the last two episodes be?

Fear not! Just because there are fewer episodes in Stranger Things part 2 doesn’t mean they’re not filled to the brim with action. Episode 8—titled “Chapter Eight: Papa”—has a run time of about 1 hour and 25 minutes, while episode 9—titled “Chapter Nine: The Piggyback”—is a whopping 2 hours and 30 minutes long. Those are...long to say the least, but consider your streaming challenge accepted, @Netflix!

Is there a trailer?

Yes, and spoiler alert, you’re gonna wanna grab a box of Kleenex because there are a lot of hints throughout that suggest some members of the Hawkins crew may not make it out of this battle alive. One user commented, “If Steve dies, I’m sending Netflix my therapy bill,” and TBH, that’s my entire mood right now.

Netflix *also* decided to release a special teaser just for part 2 as part of Geeked Week that features Nancy, Steve, and Robin still in the Upside Down, Hopper staring at a potential new monster (?!?), and even more OMG moments that will probably be meme-worthy. Check it out below:

Where can I watch it?

Similar to other Netflix releases, Stranger Things season 4 part 2 will also premiere on the streamer. Now, while we would never advise anyone to steal a friend or family member’s credentials, we are inclined to tell you that the ending to this season is A VERY BIG DEAL. So do with that what you will….
