Netflix hosted the world premiere for stranger things 4 Saturday night screening of the first episode of the streamer’s anchor series for cast and crew members. Various members of the media were also in attendance, with the streamer allowing them to tweet early reactions to the episode immediately after the premiere ended. As you’d expect, early reactions are overwhelmingly positive and near-perfect.
Most praise the show’s “return to form”, with some calling it the show’s scariest outing to date. Others praised the project’s production value, saying it looked as much like the $30 million Netflix allegedly spent on each episode. The series will debut the first chunk of season four episodes on May 27, while the rest of the season will be released on July 1.
The series will then conclude with its fifth season, although no filming or release schedule has been set as of yet. “Seven years ago, we planned the full story arc for stranger things“, stranger things creators Matt and Ross Duffer previously wrote in a letter to fans. “At the time, we predicted the story would last four to five seasons. It turned out to be too long to be told in four but, as you will see for yourselves, we are now racing towards our finale. “

scarier than ever
#StrangerThings The Season 4 premiere is high stakes, emotional, and scarier than ever. But more than anything, it’s so good to have these characters – and this show – back. Get excited, because there’s nothing else like it on TV.

The first episode of #StrangerThings4 immediately gets darker than what we’ve seen before and absolutely loved it. The show feels more mature, reflecting how these characters and audiences have grown while retaining the same elements that make it #StrangerThings. pic.twitter.com/DAs2Bf2X6r
