Stranger Things 4’s Final Episodes Will Be ‘a Mad Symphony of Chaos’

Stranger Things season 4 has already been larger than anything that has previously been seen in the series, and with almost four hours still to come in the final two episodes, things are going to get even crazier as the season comes to a close. The Duffer Brothers have expanded and grown the show with each season, and this time around, the Upside-Down has played a bigger role than ever, with many fan favorites finding themselves trapped in the demonic world of Vecna. Now the creators of the series have promised “a mad symphony of chaos” to come in the final two episodes, which premiere on July 1.


Stranger Things’ fourth season is already on the verge of the becoming the most-watched English language series on Netflix, and by the time the final two episodes roll out, the two parts combined will make it the biggest season of anything, including the massive Squid Game, to have been put out in Netflix history. As the most ambitious season of the show to date, Ross Duffer and Matt Duffer told TVLine that the finale is going to top even what has been seen so far. They said:

Matt: “[Volume 2] has a little bit of everything. It’s extremely emotional while also having the most action and spectacle we’ve ever had. […] Joe Quinn is very eloquent. He’s such a smart kid. He called it a mad symphony of chaos. I’ll borrow that. That’s what it is, especially the final episode.”

Ross: “We’ve been cross-cutting between these different worlds all season, but the cross-cutting just gets really rapid-fire in the finale as we’re bouncing from one world to the next.”

Matt: “But it’s not wall-to-wall action. That’s what I like about being able to do something long-form. The finale does very much feel like a blockbuster spectacle, but there’s also a lot of time spent dealing with our characters. Hopefully, it’s satisfying for people.”

Stranger Things May Be Ending But it is a Long Way From Over


While season 4 is the penultimate season of the main Stranger Things series, and the story of Eleven and the Upside-Down will come to an end in season 5, that does not mean the Stranger Things franchise will be disappearing from screens. The Duffers are already playing with new ideas of where to branch out next and is it likely that we will continue to see some favorite characters returning for those spin-offs. In a recent interview, the Duffers said:

“We do have an idea for a spinoff that we’re super excited about … but we haven’t told anyone the idea yet, much less written it. We think everyone — including Netflix — will be surprised when they hear the concept, because it’s very, very different. But somehow Finn Wolfhard — who is one crazy smart kid — correctly guessed what it was going to be about. But aside from Finn, no one else knows!”

For now, there are plenty of mysteries still to be answered in season 4, which will drop its final episodes on July 1.
