The first part of the new season debuts on Friday, May 27th!

Netflix have posted the first eight minutes of the new season on YouTube, which you can watch below.

The streaming giant have also revealed how many episodes will be in each of the season’s two 'volumes'. Volume one, which premieres this coming Friday, will have seven episodes. Volume two, which debuts just over a month later, on Friday, July 1st, will have two episodes.

In the The New York Times profile of show creators Matt and Ross Duffer, it has also been confirmed that season 4 is “five hours longer than any previous one,” and three of the first four episodes are 75 minutes long “or more.” An official Netflix post gave some more specific numbers: the seventh episode is 1 hour, 38 minutes; the eighth is around 1 hour, 25 minutes; and the ninth is almost two and a half hours long.

As confirmed in an open letter by the pair earlier this year, this will be the final season. Boo!
